Major publishers slash App Store prices

Capcom, Sega and Namco have each sunk the price of their iPhone games just days after EA and Gameloft announced similar sales ploys.

The move will add further grief to indie iPhone developers who, hitherto, distinguished themselves favourably from the big publishers with low price points.

But now the publishing world is moving in on that space with key, and likely to be repeated, seasonal discount offers.

The entire Capcom catalogue – featuring the likes of Dead Rising Mobile, Street Fighter, Phoenix Wright and Resident Evil 4 – is being sold at $0.99 each.

UK shoppers too can take advantage. Phoenix Wright, a game recently sold on the Nintendo DS for £25, is available today at £0.59.
