Disappointing Labor Day?

Was kinda expecting some better sales this weekend, but not a lot of stuff lighting up in my App Shopper wishlist. Can we expect more tomorrow, or do you think most of what was gonna go on sale has already gone on sale?

It is a little slower than expected. Very surprised there's not the usual Gameloft sale.

I can't say I'm surprised, given that Labor Day is not an international holiday. You see more sales on May Day (what could be considered the international version of Labor Day).

I am venturing a guess that publishers/devs are preparing for the new iphone or ipad mini launch before trying to set the positions in the charts.

I picked up a couple of games I'd hoped would come down in price, but did expect more action as it got closer to Labor Day.

Actually, I picked up a number of Big Fish games. They put every one of their games on sale, even the new ones. Games for the iPhone/iPod Touch were $.99 and collector's editions for the iPad were $2.99 instead of the usual $6.99.

I'm happy with my take from the Labor Day sales, as I'd bought many BF games this weekend also. Most other games that would've gone on sale I'd probably gotten through a previous sale if not bought outright or would not have been of interest to me.
Plus I also picked up a few other games I'd been meaning to get (like Asphalt 7). Also glad to have the extra time searching and buying because of the holiday.
