    EA's Sims Pool appeared on Apple's iTunes tonight and is currently visible in the U.K. iTunes store.

    The $4.99 (£3.99) game is available at at this iTunes link, but does not presently appear in the U.S. iTunes store.

    Electronic Arts had previously revealed that they were working on 4 new iPod games this year. So far they have released Sims Bowling and, now, Sims Pool.

    No, my point is that £3.99 and $4.99 are not equal amounts. When a journalist puts a rough conversion in brackets they're supposed to convert the currency, not guess!

    Should be written as, "the download on iTunes is priced at £3.99 ($8.10)…"

    It's not a guess. The U.S. iTunes store charges $4.99 and the U.K. store charges £3.99.

    Nice to meet you too. I just hope Apple pays equal attention to foreign markets as it does the US.

    The American Market is Big, but the world market is huge. Let us all love Apple and say F*ck You to Microsoft.

    Okay I am going to get banned from MR--I have been controversial lately. Just say "No" to the "Patriot Act."

    lol thanks, hope u can understand my writing haha



    does this mean that the UK store would make more money on the games?? because the UK dollar is worth more than the US? (i think)

    It's silly, but I've always liked these little "skill" games on computers. Always liked computer golf even though I hate the real thing. Think I'm going to have to give this a shot.
