    Well after months of waiting the price of Super Monkey Ball has FINALLY been lowered to $7.99 (rather than $9.99)

    Super Monkey Ball (App Store)

    Now I might consider buying it!!!!!!

    Ya I agree with you on that... The people at Sega were SO slow at realizing that people weren't willing to pay $9.99 no matter how good the game was, I mean if (Cro-Mag Rally, or Engimo) selling strongly at $9.99 they wouldn't have lowered the price. $9.99 may have been a good entry level price, but now that price certainly isin't attractive anymore!

    I especially feel bad for the people who (like you) who paid for Apps when they first came out... I guess the devlopers thought $9.99 would be an attractive price. Flash Forward 4 months... and almost all of those games are now under $5.00!!

    It should be under $5.. Enigmo was once $9.99 and is now only $0.99. I remember when it was the #1 paid app, it's not even in the Top 50 anymore. It is a fun game, but it needs to be priced even more competitively.

    SMB should follow Pangea's game to $2. It would sell so much better.

    cro-mag is the game that made me hesitant on purchasing new high priced apps. I got both cro-mag and smb at $9.99. SMB is about the only game I got that I still play regularly. I doubt I have even played cro-mag 5 times and I had since Aug 20'something

    I don't mind paying $9.99 it was a more playable game. I bought it the first day it came out and it was the very first iphone app I purchased as a matter of fact. However the control on the game was nearly impossible, after not getting very far and being frustrated like many people, I simply stopped playing it and moved on to other games. By now, there are so many accelerometer based games out there, I actually prefer other more creative games that are not solely accelerometer based.

    I personally thought it was worth 6.99 having finished the game. I bought cro-mag at 1.99 and regretted that decision the next day.

    Ya I kinda agree.... The first time you played it... you were SOO amazed at the graphics... and then once you started winning everytime the game got old...
