Blizzard has partnered with the Breast Cancer Research Foundation and they started to sell a Mercy skin for Overwatch and all sales of the $15 limited time legendary skin are going to charity, or it looked like that.
Pretty disgraceful from Sony. Taking a 22% cut from each purchase of Overwatch’s Mercy Breast Cancer Research charity skin. 100% goes to charity on Xbox and PC. Games media needs to report this. pic.twitter.com/ZCIiHgKcpy

As you can see from the image above, it clearly says – Of the £12.99 purchase, Sony says it is donating £10.12 to charity, while on Xbox and PC 100% of the purchase goes to charity. This is still unclear, so VG247 contacted Sony and they got the following statement:
“We are not making any profit from sales of the Overwatch Pink Mercy Skin. The charity proceeds are going to Breast Cancer Research.”
The gaming community is not really happy with this, and they seek for an explanation. We hope to hear from Sony soon!
