Ok guys, can I say something controversial? I have been an Android user for a long time too, and despite Google maintaining an open system when all apps get accepted automatically (unless they contain malware of course), I have never seen such blatant scams. Yet on iOS, where every release is supposed to be "thoroughly revieweved", I have seen so many scammy apps over the past few days. Where is the logic in that? Should Apple not be ashamed of this travesty?

This is not funny!

Populous, Shinobi and now this!
What's next Half life: Episode 3?!

I've read a while back on 9to5 that all the reviews actually go through some Indian guy but this is really ridiculous, AND ON THE SAME DAY?!

It's like it's a loop hole or something, really weird..

Yes it is shameful. No one would deny that.

There are two fake Halo 4 apps now. One by Dung Bui on 12/19, the other by Toan Tran on 12/20. Both Support links go to same domain, so I'm guessing same guy with multiple developer accounts.

"Dev" names sound Vietnamese.
