    There are a few games I want to buy...Do you think it's worth to wait till the 25th or 26th? Does anyone think there will be major christmas price cuts? I want to get fastlane or ferrari, rolando, and uno and/or maybe some other expensive ones that I can't think of right now....so whatdaya all think will happen? sale? no sale?

    If last month was any indication, look for price drops galore. I'm waiting on alot of bigger purchases almost a guarantee of price drops, seriously.

    A lot of games went on sale, or were free over Thanksgiving and Black Friday, however that is a date associated with sales and savings, so it kind of made sense. Many apps are already on xmas sales, whether any would cut their price for just the day of xmas, I'm not sure. It would be a risky business move because on one hand, people may be too busy that day to actually buy them, which is good for the developer because they don't sell too many copies at a lower price, however it kind of defeats the purpose of having a promotional sale.

    I could see a feeding frenzy over those iTunes Gift Cards people are opening on christmas day.

    I agree wait it out
     
  6. If somebody has a card, however, they might be more inclined to purchase apps at full price cuz it was a gift and not their money

    Well something that may not be known by most people is that iTunes connect (what the devs use to upload & update their applications) will be closed for the holidays so the sale will most likely start early and end late

    it may be down, but people can put in auto price reductions that will start on a specific date ahead of time... Lets see what happens..
     
  13. Virtual Pool has been on sale since Thanksgiving and will be going UP after Christmas as the sale will end after Santa heads back to the North Pole. We might have lost our minds, but I wouldn't be surprised if other devs are going to follow the same plan. So.. I would buy before the 25th or 27th or so.
