How many times have u bought a game and then it goes on sale the next day?

I was waiting a while to see if star defense would ever have a sale again ... and then yesterday I figured I'd just buy it thinking it wouldn't have a sale for a long time... Today i wake up and star defense is now 3 dollars cheaper! I know 3 bucks isn't much but when the economy has treated you pretty badly, every lil bit counts...

How many times has this kinda thing happened to you?

Never. Why would you buy a game before it goes on sale?? Just don't do it.

That is why you NEVER buy a game until it drops to $0.99

Or wait until it goes to free... of course, that could be after the iPhone is an antique...

You can also take heart in the likely hood that everyone that buys it now at $2.99 will be feeling pain when it drops to $1.99 or $.99 in the future as many big name games have done...

why would you pay $25 for a online dictionary anyways? get the dictionary.com app.
