    It's life, get over it.

    While it doesn't directly relate, it does fit: Never bet what you're not willing to lose.


    I'm personally waiting for a "I am so sick of these types of posts" reply from someone.

    Omg we don't need a thread for this! Just pretend you didn't know about the sale and forget about it.

    If I buy a TV now for 1000 bucks, in a year you will get it for half the price,
    so what?! It's just about personal value. If it has any worth to you, the price
    development AFTER your perchase shouldn't matter anymore.

    And especially Zombieville is worth more than 1 or 3 bucks.

    Thank you for pointing out this problem in the app store! I hadn't ever realized this before, and I bet most of my fellow members haven't either. Now that you mention it, it really pisses me off too! Bravo, good sir, bravo.

    Amazing, two different Tom's, with proper case names, with F as the first letter of the second part, and no spacing in between share the same exact opinion!

    What are the odds?! :eek:

    So would it be better to always pay full price and never have a sale?

    Could be worse..

    Maybe the developer saw you buy the game, knowing that you are having bad luck with these price drops and decided to tease you?

    Im sure he is simply riding the top 100 wave to get a better placement :)

    Next time you buy a game, make sure you are happy with the price, regardless if it drops. That way you wont be so disappointed if it happens
    to you again, which is more than 0.99c likely it will.

    Yeah maybe we can all get a refund for every app that dropped in price that we bought at full.

    That would be reasonable and fair for the developers and us. :rolleyes:

    Not even just that, once he ventures out into the real world and notices that price drops happen everywhere in life, he is going to have such a fit! Boy will his face be red! :mad:
