Anywhere from 0% up to 35% depending on the type of publisher, the experience (fame) of the developer, the type of product and the amount of money paid for the development.

Yep very good reading. 30-50% for products you fund yourself (often called a co-publishing deal) is the next step up from the one Eazy-E_ is asking about. Then above that comes a distribution deal, where the "developer" is virtually the publisher, funding development, production (box, manual, CD etc) and sometimes even marketing.
