Apple Adjusts App Store Prices Across The World
Well, there's good news and there's bad news, AppSpy readers.
If you live in Australia - like my good friend Andrew - pop open the champagne bottles this morning, for App Store prices in your region have fallen.
If you live in England - like my good self - curl up into a small ball and pray the last 24 hours have been nothing but a bad dream. A nightmare, basically.
To explain: Apple has decided to raise the RRP of iPhone games in the UK across the board (with the exception of £2.99 titles), so that the lowest paid-for price point is now 69p, up from 59p.
Whether this affects the frankly ridonkulous sales of Angry Birds in the future is open to debate, but I'd suggest not.
Down Under, meanwhile, The Big A has actually reduced the minimum price point for an App Store game to $0.99.
MacStories posits that this iTunes 'recalibration' has been carried out as a sympathetic reaction to the fluctuating global exchanging rates, i.e. the increasing strength of certain regions' currencies.
