    I've just been browsing all the apps in the app store, and they look great. BUT, there are no games at all in the iTunes App Store in Ireland!!! Does anybody know why the *@$% not????

    I think that might be true - even though their European headquarters are here!! I don't understand it.

    Does anybody know the reason for the lack of games in the Irish store, or if they will appear in time?

    Don't developers set it?

    So the developers hate Ireland.

    Brazil too!

    No games in the Brazilian app store too! Why is that??:confused:

    Looking thru the stores I found that Costa Rica doesn't have them either... But I didn't found others yet...

    Maybe they checked off their 'main' markets first such as the us and uk?
    And didnt go near most of the others such as India,Mexico, etc
    (including ireland)


    would make sense


    doesnt help this s*****y problem though
    iWant My super monkey ball :(

    We do have a total of one game in the store though,
    Mr Shuffle ftw anyone?

    Total of about 483 apps on the irish store.
    Thats a lot missing (from the total of 713 so far)

    Obviously an EU conspiracy to punish the Irish for how they voted on the referendum.

    well, at least now the Irish guys can have games on the App Store..
    but we, brazilians, CANT! :mad:


    the only good thing about it is that if Ireland got after some time, matbe we will get it too! (AND SOON!) :rolleyes:
