Real Racing and Star Defense Sales?

I think Star Defense and Real Racing are going to have sales cause neither is in the top 100 apps. And in the top 100 Games section in iTunes Real Racing is #94 and Star Defense isn't even there.

Anyone Agree?

no i dont agree. All cause games that are really good arent in the top 100 doesnt mean there are getting a price drop.

But the companys expected them to do REALLY well. they even got high ratings from gaming websites. They aren't getting lots if buisness.

How do you know? Did they publish their sales figures somewhere? At the price points both games are currently being sold at they could be making tons of money without the quantity of sales required to be listed on the top lists.

u dont have to see their sales to know...anyways games on the Top 100 list literally sells themselves. so even if RR dropped to 6.99 like NFS, they easily make up for the 3 sales to top 1 '9.99' sales. I think its worth it.

I expect Real Racing may get a price drop one day, but not any day soon. Star Defense is a steal anyway and I don't see that dropping in the short run.

Other than being 3D, I dont find it special at all. and the 3D is just a preference. For me, I hated the view.

It took me awhile to get into it, but it's a decent game that could do with some tweaks to make it better like tower damage info and upgrade info and not having to press the towers twice to get the upgrade screen.
