The listings for the first batch of iPad games have popped up on iPhone analysis site App Annie, finally confirming what most of us expected—yes, some games will be more expensive on the iPad.
We’ve researched most of the games on the site and have found the following price changes. Of course, this being the App Store, expect some of these prices to shift in the coming days and weeks.
- Ammoin: $1 on iPhone, $1 on iPad
- Bugdom 2: $4 on iPhone, $10 on iPad
- Cro-Mag Rally: $3 on iPhone, $10 on iPad
- Enigmo: $3 on iPhone, $10 on iPad
- Flight Control: $1 on iPhone, $5 on iPad
- Labyrinth: $5 on iPhone, $8 on iPad
- Nanosaur 2: $4 on iPhone, $10 on iPad
- Otto Matic: $4 on iPhone, $10 on iPad
- PuzzleManiak: $1 on iPhone, $1 on iPad
- Sparkle: $3 on iPhone, $3 on iPad
As you can see, while some games have more than doubled in price, others have remained exactly the same. If a company put in a lot of effort to re-appropriate the game for a new platform with a smaller userbase, are you okay with them charging more?
