IAP? I doubt it. Not sure though, but I doubt it.

Doubt it. That's the problem with huge (in file size) games that have iaps. I'll have probably spent my itunes account by the time I install it, if it ever even happens. As an example, I was going to purchase the GOF2 add-ons, but I haven't been able to re-install it in ages.

Much more likely to buy a (much smaller) Pinball Arcade or Zen Pinball table.

OTOH, I bought all the Sam and Max's, though who knows when I'll install them. I suppose there might be a higher conversion rate by including the chapters as iaps...for those who have a 32Gb device or larger.

One last thing...if I was a big publishing house, I would be pressuring Apple in any way possible to update the available storage sizes. I mean, I got an iPod classic with 80 gigs a long time ago. And that's just a music player. And I think 160 is the standard size now.

Thanks man. Got the first Hector for free and thought the parts I played were hilarious. I'm grabbing the other two episodes.

I've barely started it. :-/ Too many games and too little time. Plus I've been firing up Magic 2013 again.

Did they say which sales are until January and which are more time-limited? I assume The Walking Dead will be made paid again before the Appstore lockdown, but will everything else remain discounted for the holidays?
