Has that ever happen? And how do you feel?

Sonic & Sega All-Stars Racing...bought it last Christmas whilst it was on sale, for it to turn free thanks to the Apple 12-days of Christmas promotion

I'm just lurking here...menacingly!

It happens but not a big deal specially when the game might be 69p. It's worse in real life when a car or house drops in price!

For me, it depends on the worth of the game. Some games, or just apps in general, I didn't feel too bothered when the prices dropped. As for others, I just throw them into AppShopper and wait for sales to take place.

Besides, now that we're approaching the end of 2012, it's going to be sales galore.

It's ok for me but don't lie to me, I hate capcom!
capcom fooled me again and again, for IOS ,it's twice.
first, they discount street fighter, after I bought it, they realeased volt.
second time is street fighter x tekken, they said they will raise the price, but after I bought they discount it to 0.99.
yes you have right to discount it but you can't lie like that.

Why would I get mad over $0.99? The developer probably needs it more than I do

Hey, leave the greedy, selfish kids alone. It's not their fault they have no understanding of the inner econimical workings of game development and their views on product worth and fair trade have been hideously skewed.

Dead Trigger, Death Rally, Flight Control Rockets

tons of other stuff, basically I learned my lesson not to buy games that clearly shout "IM GOING TO BE A F2P SOON"

Next day? Not sure. I DID buy Sky Gamblers at $4.99, TWO whole hours before it went on sale for .99. It's possible I could have bothered Apple for store credit, but...eh.

Oh...still have yet to install it. I can haz microSD slot pleaz?
