EA maxing out iPad game prices

Having dropped off the radar for a few months, EA’s iPhone version of Mirror’s Edge has reportedly re-merged as an iPad-optimised title – with a an iPad-optimised price tag.

TouchArcade reports that the game will carry a $14.99 price tag when it hits the App Store in conjunction with the launch of the iPad this weekend in North America.

That’s likely to translate to anything between 9.99 and 11.99 on the UK version of Apple’s portal.

It joins EA’s fellow iPad launch title Command & Conquer: Red Alert in carrying what is a very high price point for the App Store, which is a market that has primarily succeeded due to the very low price of its games.

For instance, Rockstar’s Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars costs 29.99 on both DS and PSP. The iPhone version, in contrast, costs just 5.99.
