I am happy to pay so long as I get at least 3 months before it goes on sale.
yeah it's unfortunate that putting your game on sale isn't just for the sake of creating and driving interest through a discounted price, but you have to consider the immediacy of a release... when it comes out you can see how well you're doing almost up to the hour. If you aren't seeing any movement then you will sink further into the muck of the app store.
More importantly though when you switch to a lower price you get picked up by price bots that blast out to everyone that your app has lowered in price. That is free blanket marketing right there that will allow you to be exposed...so don't take it personally when you see something like that happen. It's just the dev trying to manipulate the app trackers out there to give them free advertising in the lists.
