Konami sneaks in Metal Gear Solid Touch price cut
By Tracy Erickson 10 August 2009
Game Name: Metal Gear Solid Touch | Developer: Kojima Productions | Publisher: Konami | Format: iPhone | Genre: Shooter


Having fallen off the charts months ago, Metal Gear Solid Touch may get a boost back onto the App Store Top 100 if Konami has anything to say about it.

The company today announced a temporary sale on the game August 13-15. Currently priced at $7.99 or 2.99, it will be reduced to $2.99 or 1.79.

Anthony Borquez, Vice President of Konami Mobile and Online claims the price drop is a way of catering to the economically squeezed iPhone gamer.

"In today's economy, gamers are looking for ways to stretch their entertainment dollars more than ever, and with a $2.99 Metal Gear Solid price point on the iPhone and iPod touch platforms, their entertainment dollars can go a long way."

Our analysis, however, points to the sale being a factor of the game's virtual invisibility on the App Store.

Following a hyped release in March, the game was critically panned; even after a free update, it fizzled in terms of reviews. Surprisingly, it still sold well despite poor reviews and a high price point.

The game's 20 stages simply don't have the variety we expected from a series of this caliber. Metal Gear Solid Touch doesn't earn our full recommendation, but at least this sale price makes it a little easier to swallow.
