.49 cent games

Is there a chance that there will be 49 or 50 cent games...because To be honest some games aren't worth .99 cents

True, some aren't even worth downloading for free... but I doubt it'll happen. Anything that would be .49 is either free or .99.

Hell no, most devs don't even make any money with the current system. If anything, they need to raise the minimum price to $2.99 or so and remove the incentive to make 99c apps altogether.

$2.99 is too much for a minimum. 99c is perfectr if the dev cant make any money then move the price up to $1.99.

I can see it now...

intead of people complaining that 4.99 games are too expensive and they'll wait for the .99 price drop, they'll be complaining that they want Madden 10 for .49

Hopefully not. If it's going to be that low quality they might as well make it free and put adds on it.
