Sid Meier's Civilization Price Drop

I was just in the App Store & saw that Civilization Revolution had dropped it's price to $2.99. I was a little miffed when I saw this because I have the Bargain Bin application w/ Push Notifications & I had actually set my watchlist to notify me when Revolution dropped to the above price point. But to my surprise when I opened up the app it insisted that Revolution was still at the regular $4.99. Thinking that my app was malfunctioning I went back into the App Store & noticed that while the game is listed in the new/what's hot section as $2.99, when you actually click on the App to buy it still reads as $4.99.

Is this an App Store mistake or is a price drop imminent?

(if there is already a thread for this I apologize in advance)

Wow, this game was #1 in paid apps and that's that it was sold for $4.99 and $9.99, I'll be keeping my eye on this game.

I bet it will be $1 in no time. They go for $5 -> $10 -> $5 -> $10 -> $5 and now $3.
