Reasons why buying games from the app store is better than going to a real game store

1. I don't have to put on pants.
2. Nothing is ever 'out of stock'.

Any others?

Yes because iTunes is so terrible

I got 1 for why the app store is better ~ because with the money that you would've spent on gas you can buy another game/games

Easily the number 1 reason is because it never closes - not even for holidays!

Although the pants thing is a close second now that I think about it!

Not all 99 cent games are crappy. There are a lot of quality 99 cent games that really shouldn't be 99 cents.

There are plenty of awesome 99 cent games. Sure most of them are pretty bad but that still means there are plenty of great 99 cent games. Nintaii, Doodle Jump, Geo Defense, the Cartoon Wars series are some of the best 99 cent games I've ever spent.

It eliminates the problems and costs associated with physical media. Can you imagine what a nightmare it would be if every one of your iPhone games came on a physical memory device, even as small as a microSD?
