Price wars. Ridiculous or benneficial!!
We have all gone to notice that high quality games that took a lot of time and money to develop are being dropped to extremely low prices 99 cents. Many of these games that are participating in these pricing wars may have appeared in the app store at the premium price of ten dollars. Game such as Hero of Sparta, Asphalt Elite and many other games taking massive price cuts not just to the point of 99 cents. Rolando is the perfect example a high quality game with hours of replaybility and months of support following release is currently at a price of 5.99 when it is to many disserving of a price point of ten dollars due to the amount of content in the game. We as gamers hold the fate of the iphone as a gaming device in our hands. If we refuse to support more high quality expensive endeavors such as Doom:ressurection we are forcing the iphone as a gaming device to go the path of the wii where only cheap casual games can be successful and hardcore more expensive/premium titles can not thrive. As a result of this hardcore developers will stop making games for iphone because they can not be successful. Do we want the iphone to go the path of the wii or will we choose to support these particular endeavors to ensure we as iphone gamers receive high quality titles. (more expensive games don't necessarily mean better or high quality games i am not arguing that). So are these price wars hurting the future of iphone wars. Are we as consumers more concerned with the immediate benefits of paying for cheaper games or the future of the software we will receive.
