Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

Looks like you're going to have to jailbreak if you want them. =/

The other thread doesn't answer anything about this. Why no news stories about atari? They even removedthe iPhone section from their platform lit on their website. Why suddenly stop all Ophir development and remov all apps from he store? Why no news coverage?

They probably weren't making enough to cover the $99 registration fee. Either that, or they didn't want to devalue their products for 99c. I remember getting centipede on my bday for 30 bucks back in the day.
