I been reading alot of threads , with the canabalt thread wining ridiculous thread of decade award . I see alot of people complaining about prices in different threads . "Oh its not worth $2.99 , your breaking my wallet " . " Oh no $1.99 is the dev crazy , 99 cent or nothing is my motto " " he had the nerve to charge $2.99 , what type of human being are you " " I dont care if its 3D with playstation graphics , 99 cent should be the maximum allowed !!! Who the hell does gameloft think they are !?! " " For $6.99 I could buy 9 games for 99 cents , so dummies waste your money , I must be the only one who can do math over here " " today I lost all respect for Rovio , he stole angry birds from chillingo , and has the nerve release a halloween version for 99 cents !!! Its should be free that stealing bastard !! And even bloggers have something to say " Everyone we need to make a stand today or pay dearly later . Apple and the developers have a secret plan .Apple launched the ipad and told developers to start price gouging . I mean $5.99 for a game I could buy a console game with that type of money . Look I dont mind the $1,99 or even $2.99 sometimes its worth it . But $5.99 now you developers cross the line and are stepping in forbidden territory . Thats premium money I can do alot with $5.99 . At $5.99 you are impairing my ability to pay bills and support my own family. I once saw a game listed at $9.99 and almost past out. Are you ****ing crazy !! $9.99 how the hell I am supposed to pay rent !! Now for the point of all this , a very important point. As developers we should not and can not let people jugde what our art is worth . Whatever effort you put into the game , that dictates the price . Dont let people push you around and tell you how to price your app . Yes all developers 1st game or app should be 99 cents to get a feel for the market . After that you should price your app according to work you put into it. At 99 cent your game or app is just another game or app . At a higher price the people who pay will appreciate you app , give you suggestions and support you . Thank you for your time in reading this.
