Full colour product page on iTunes?

I have noticed that several companies have full coloured and designed product pages displayed on iTunes. I am trying to figure the process of creating such a page myself. Has anyone gone through this process. Looking through the information provided by iTunes the only reference I can find is the screen size ( 900 x 530 ) PSA. Has anyone attempted to customize their product page?

For example: Scrabble has such a page

Does someone have the guidelines handy to create such a page?

It's much like getting featured on the homepage of iTunes and chosen to be featured on the handset; Apple will contact you and give you specs for the art required. One of our games, Star Hogs got the illustrious full page art and we had nothing to do with it other than passing the artwork off to Apple. Apple decides what gets featured and what doesn't. Make great games and you'll get noticed (sounds easy I know, but it isn't!).

Apple must contact you about it. They choose who gets custom page designs in their description.

I was wondering why a select few had the privilege of using colour. I am glad I posted here since I was going to create the page myself. Thanks for the info. I now officially feel like one of the guys in the ditch waitng for Godot to come along.

I was forced to read this book during my school days on two different continents so I automatically presumed everyone else here had to analyse Pozzo's and Lucky's wait in the ditch.

that's interesting, I always supposed that custom pages were a sort of advertisement paid by developers.
