I don't care if you need to go diving between couch cushions scrounging for change to be able to afford to do it, but if you own an iOS device, you need to download Dead Space [99¢ / HD] while it's on sale for 99¢. Dead Space for iOS is a phenomenal taste of the Dead Space universe if you've yet to dabble in the "full" console titles, and at 99¢, flat out cannot be beat. We thought it was great in our review, and a recent update addressed our main gripe with the game's controls.

There are a ton of other games on sale for the holiday weekend. We'll go through and list out the good ones soon, but in the meantime do not miss Dead Space. If you want to trudge through all the games on sale yourself, head on over to AppShopper to find a listing of absolutely every game that has had its price drop. Do this after you've downloaded Dead Space.

    Does this game contain anything that could be construed as a spoiler for Dead Space 1 or 2? I've been majorly slacking on finishing the first one, but that doesn't mean I don't still intend to do it.

    After this, no one will buy an Electronic Arts app at full price ever.

      Shhhh :) Discouraging special sales is not in our best interests :)

      Which will encourage them to do more sales more often. +1

        It's bad for the appstore

      • CAG

        Quiet you. Apple is bad for the App store.

    Currently being modified!?! :(

      Try again; I think iTunes stuff (and other Apple downloads) gets rolled out to different servers/destinations in phases. I just grabbed the HD version for .99. (Although AppShopper does not yet reflect the sale.)

      BTW—I wonder what’s new exactly for iPad 2, graphically? Does this have full-screen AA?

  • Salsamd

    NBA Jam and Fight Night are also $0.99

  • Theorioles33

    Great sales but I seriously think Apple needs to incorporate some type of plan which allows buyers to get refunds on apps that go on sale with a couple weeks. Sucks for someone who just bought Dead Space HD a day or 2 ago or even a week or 2 ago.

      Not gonna happen, as all sales are final.

      I think sales for Easter holiday is actually predictable.

    • Jaison

      seems it's not the HD just the iPhone versions. :(

      Then companies would never give discounts since they would have to refund thousands of people money. 6 dollars savings spread over 1000 people, well you do the math. Be happy when you get a sale don't cry if you miss one :-).

      Now you're sounding like an iTunes review.

  • suzanne

    Bummer. HD version is back to $9.99. I wonder if it was a mistake and they only meant to price adjust the iPhone version.

  • Garoth

    This is showing as 9.99 for the iPad version for me, anyone else having this issue?

    • jase

      It's showing $9.99 now for me also, but I was able to buy it around 8 pm EDT for 99 cents. I even checked my iTunes account to make sure that I was only charged 99 cents.

  • dacalo

    Yeah I think the sale is over, good thing I brought the ipad 2 with me to work...

  • Doodoo12342002

    its 99 cents now

  • http://www.facebook.com/frank.rosario Frank Rosario

    6.99 for iPhone, 9.99 for iPad for me.

    • dacalo

      It's $0.99 again.

      • http://www.facebook.com/frank.rosario Frank Rosario

        You're right, now the deal is back again.

  • turtlevenom

    If you let it do the auto-complete search for you, it comes up as 9.99, but if you just seach "Dead Space" it comes up as .99

  • Doodoo12342002

    glitchy appstore lol... when i was buying it for 99c i checked it again and it kept jumping back and forth lol

  • YoureAMessy

    Yeah, it's showing 6.99 on iTunes for me as well. I got NBA Jam on sale, though. :)

  • Poop

    Yup, everything is showing original price for me currently =(
    Would've loved Dead Space & Scrabble discounts...

  • Jaison

    i brought up dead space hd and it was $9.99 but i kept clicking on the icon and the price switched to $.99 and i bought it. they better not charge me $9.99 lol

    • Garoth

      Just nabbed it (iPad version) for 99 cents! Woo!

  • http://twitter.com/KingN777 N D V

    It's at 6.99 now :/

  • Skye629

    Who cares if its $7 this baby is worth 20 if u ask me

  • James

    I find that the $0.99 prices are shown for me in my Wish List, but not by going to the apps' pages. Maybe try that if it's not showing up for you.

  • aleXXXps

    Not coming up at .99 for me, but 6.99

  • http://twitter.com/KingN777 N D V

    it looks like it's switching between the sale price and the full price. I just got it for 99c, just keep trying

    The tutorial was nice. Too bad it requires tilt :(

    • http://profiles.google.com/davidhorinek David Hořínek

      It doesn't. Check my answer under this one.

      • Anonymous

        I couldn't find that option. Is it only for the iPad?

  • Thomas

    Only US? :-(

    • http://profiles.google.com/davidhorinek David Hořínek

      No, probably in other areas too. I am from Czech Republic.

    Tilting your device to rotate the weapon is really lame, especially on the iPad. Very awkward.

    • http://profiles.google.com/davidhorinek David Hořínek

      You can rotate your weapon by button under the weapon. Maybe you have to enable this option in Options.

      • Anonymous

        not on the ipod version:(

      • Iderserveeverythingfornothing

        Yes, it can be done on the ipad version. I turned the tilt option off on mine.

      • Iderserveeverythingfornothing

        I meant it can be done on the ipod version.

  • http://twitter.com/DiveMasterGame Gyula Somogyi

    Not available in the Hungarian store... Why?!

  • http://twitter.com/mikeyCAPS michael c.

    It looks like MAJORITY of EAs apps are .99 cents.
