Apple to sell premium iPhone games for a tenner?
There's a rumour doing the rounds that suggests Apple may do special deals with some of the larger games publishers and bring a "premium games" section to the App store, charging around ten pounds ($19.99) for each.
That's according to "sources" who have been in contact with Pocket Gamer.
Though no-one wanted to officially comment, there's apparently been speculation for a while now (sorry, missed that one).
What strikes me as odd, though, is that Apple initially stated that developers would be allowed to charge whatever they liked (or nothing, of course) for an application. I wasn't aware of anything that stopped games publishers in particular from charging a higher rate. Though games have currently been available for under six quid, I presumed this was more to do with simple economics than any stipulation from Apple. That's the only reason I'm not wholly convinced by the rumour.
We'll have to wait and see, as usual.
