Just a few days ago, the rhythmic-strategy game Orgarhythm THD launched. It’s a direct port of a PS Vita title that costs $30, and on Google Play it was separated into four portions, the first of which was free, and the latter three costing almost $9 each, bringing the total cost to over $25. Mind you, this for a mobile game.
So that brought me to think – how much at most are people willing to pay for a mobile game? I know for a fact that Japanese developers have no second-thoughts in pricing their games on the high-end of the spectrum. Just look at Square Enix, Hyperdevbox and Acquire and you’ll notice it.
Anyway, I’d like to pose this question your way now. Assuming a game has got generally favorable reviews, is of a genre you like and is from a renowned developer, how much at most are you willing to spend? $6.99 is a popular price-point for many premium console-quality games, $2.99 usually gets you a decent mid-core game whilst lots of casual games come in at $0.99. Of course, there are truckloads of free games as well amongst all that.
