You split them up kinda weird, but $9.99 seems reasonable, and I don't think people would mind if it was higher.

Well it's weird trying to split the pricing since the psp version is around $40 and the iphone version is essentially the samething.

this will be a big arguement,9.99 is the usual price for big games like this,but this one is something else,the game is originally made for a console and just ported with the same content,i would like price to be around 9.99-14.99,higher might not be appealing,but i don't know,Rockstar will still decide for it

WTF= What the F*ck!

It's not originally made for a console. It was originally for the DS.

Yep. It's done in-house.

Personally, I don't think they would be able to sell well unless they kept it to $10. That's just how the iPhone market rolls. Then again, they are Rockstar - they have a penchant for doing some amazing things...

First game in progress...

I doubt they'll be bold enough to break the $9.99 pricing parameter.

It's an official Grand Theft Auto port. This is one of the best games, if not the best, to stretch out the pricing limit.

If I was a company as big as Rockstar, I break the $10 mark...
