Blizzard Entertainment has recently developed a Pink Mercy Skin for Overwatch which promises that the proceeds of the sale will benefit breast cancer research. It's certainly a good thing, and it's a sweet skin for Mercy to boot. It seems that nothing could go wrong with this noble gesture.
However, fans have noticed a discrepancy between Microsoft and Sony's skin store page. The PlayStation Store page states, "Blizzard Entertainment is donating 1
The Xbox One store states, "Blizzard Entertainment donates 100% of the purchase price for your Pink Mercy skin shopping on Xbox."
It is said that the proceeds go to charity while the other says the entire purchase , The fans called this on Twitter, especially since the British store specifically listed how much of the sale would go to charities.
Pretty shameful from Sony. From each purchase of Overwatch's Mercy Breast Cancer Research Charity Skin a 22% cut. 100% goes to the charity on Xbox and PC. Games media must report this. pic.twitter.com/ZCIiHgKcpy

Sony responded with a simple statement: "We're not making any profit from the sale Overwatch Pink Mercy Skin. "However, it still does not explain the discrepancy, especially if they state the definitive amount that comes to charity from the purchase in the UK.
Blizzard has been strange (or maybe not so strange?) Quiet about this matter.
