Christmas Sale

There are a few games I want to buy...Do you think it's worth to wait till the 25th or 26th? Does anyone think there will be major christmas price cuts? I want to get fastlane or ferrari, rolando, and uno and/or maybe some other expensive ones that I can't think of right now....so whatdaya all think will happen? sale? no sale?

If last month was any indication, look for price drops galore. I'm waiting on alot of bigger purchases almost a guarantee of price drops, seriously.

A lot of games went on sale, or were free over Thanksgiving and Black Friday, however that is a date associated with sales and savings, so it kind of made sense. Many apps are already on xmas sales, whether any would cut their price for just the day of xmas, I'm not sure. It would be a risky business move because on one hand, people may be too busy that day to actually buy them, which is good for the developer because they don't sell too many copies at a lower price, however it kind of defeats the purpose of having a promotional sale.

If somebody has a card, however, they might be more inclined to purchase apps at full price cuz it was a gift and not their money
