"New Games" list on TA and price drop

Hi guys!

Are there any conditions for game to appear on the "New Games" list on TA? I have dropped price of my game few hours ago, but it didnīt appear on the "New Games".

takes time. can take more than a few hours.

the only other exception is if you fluctuate the price quickly, it won't appear. That's to prevent people gaming the system.

A bit odd.. don't think I have seen it on the TA list..
FYI, the changes have been noticed on appshopper.com
Might be the game was not at $1.99 for a long enough time.

Thanks, I suppose that might be a reason.

Yep, that sort of fluctuation prevents it from getting listed for obvious reasons.
