this is optional! you don't have to pay $500 to use the service and make a game. you just see a little short splash screen before your game loads. If you think this is unfair.. EVERY unity user who uses the free tools has this and guess how much it would cost to own the software to not have a splash screen with unity.. if you want iOS and Android it would cost you $4500 and ONLY $3000 if you just do iOS or Android.. a steal!
actually for android unity u only need to pay 75 $ for a month when u got ur game ready, just buy 1 month the license and start compiling ur games ... u dont need the android or whatever features to start developing with it .... and u can cancel and repurchase that monthly option whenever u want. paying 3000- or more to own the license is for those who have a game studio a large amount of games and they need the license, since they have a exact date of release. ... where most people here are indie game developers and are working alone ...... im waiting for c3 im pretty sure there will be some untold updates including native exporters.
