    Epic have been doing this for years, long before Tencent brought their 40%.

    To exercise my own inner pedant - which is more of an outer pedant, really - pedantry is the display of useless knowledge or insistence on observance of minor rules. Even allowing for the common abuses of the term, a pedant would be more likely to insist that the figure is not rounded up than the obverse; after all, the difference between £79.9 million and £80 million is £100,000 - which is somewhat more than a rounding error for the majority of the population.

    Actually, if I can be pedantic about your insistence on observing minor linguistic rules, I was merely pedantically pointing out my own internal minor accounting rule wherein only round numbers are used for simplicity.
