Edit: You seem to have everything I posted now. Also Crash Bandicoot 2 on sale $1.99.

Edit 2: I think Apple may be involved as olliewollie stated because Real Racing and NFS Shift have gone down. It seems all major third parties are dropping their prices. If Taito begins to have sales I have more reason to believe Apple has something involved with these companies.

Edit 3: Com2Us, EA, Activision, Gameloft, Sega, 2k, Firemint, THQ, Popcap, Telltale, Tiger Style, Gamevil, Konami, id Software, Hemisphere, and Villain. Along with previous sales of Capcom and Square Enix. 0_o

Edit 4: GOOD REASON
