So when is Peggle getting another price drop?

I missed the .99 cent sale. I can't justify paying 5 times that much for the game.

2.99 I can justify. Do you guys think it'll get a permanent price drop to 2.99 or so at some point?

I think that's what devs should do, once you do a price drop, even a temporary one, you shouldn't go back all the way up to the full price. You should set a new lower price somewhere in between the temporarly price and the original retail price.

There'll probably be a sale in a while, maybe in 1-2 months if they wanna keep any trust they have left in early adopters, but the 99c price drop for the game was waaay too sweet a deal to permanently go to $2.99, if that makes any sense. This game really needs a lite version, though. I take it you've never played it before?

You can try it for free on the internet at the pop cap games website to see if you like it.

Just buy it! It's worth the price. Anyway, if you have Steam, you can download Peggle Extreme for free.

I would hold out, but it really is an awesome game worth the full price (especially if you've never played it before). The whole 99 cent thing did EXTREMELY WELL for PopCap, you can guarantee this won't be their last super sale.

Is the way-to-quiet music bug still in there? What about the grafix? Did they improve the quality, yet?

They did it to get to the top before the new iPhone owners came in and then changed it to $4.99. It worked pretty well. However, they probably won't do it again until September (new iPod) so just buy it now.

Actually, according to an article on Kotaku, they did it as an experiment and partial-protest against the AppStore's glut of throwaway 99 cent games:

Viewed in that light, it's hard to say if they'll ever price it that cheaply again.

No I have never played the game before, and I'm not a fan of puzzle type games or what not, which is why I don't want to spend $5 on it, esp knowing that it was sold for .99 (don't ask me why, it's subconcious, you don't want to spend $5 to try out something that everyone else bought for a buck).

$3 I would do.
