Of course. Downloading myself from NZ while in Germany. You just can't buy it until you have NZ$ or you wait 'til it is released in your country.

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.

I don't understand this mentality at all, you'd have happily bought the game upfront but because it's set up to give you a taste of gameplay then pay for the full game it's somehow shady?

All youever do is spam your opinion on why IAP sucks. Care to give any support?

You obviously didn't bother to find out how the IAP actually works. All Gameloft are doing here is getting rid of the lite/premium versions and just having one app which is free to try, and the full game can be unlocked for the same price that you'd pay for the app anyway. It makes perfect sense, it's better for us consumers and it will prevent piracy.

Part of this might be Gameloft getting defensive about their own reputation...
Gameloft sales are so famous, I know a lot of gamers that simply flag a new release and wait a few months until it drops to .99.

Appshopper or somewhere really needs to start tracking sales on the IAP's.

Yep... can't understand why people are against IAPs.

Hey - in the IAP window where you can buy the full game, they say it is an open world game.

Btw: first telling us that you'll stop bragging about IAPs and immediately bragging about IAPs after that is... errr...

This is why I personally dislike IAP.

I don't think "support" is what he meant but rather "explanation". I can't see why you'd be against it since it changes nothing for you. It's the same as buying it full price without any iap.
