Apple’s iPhone keeps on rolling as a gaming platform: Electronic Arts (ERTS) is bringing its big-gun games to the iPhone, including Tiger Woods PGA Tour (golf), FIFA (soccer), Madden (football), NBA Live (basketball), American Idol, The Sims, Need for Speed, and a new version of Spore.
Will EA be able to get iPhone gamers to pay up for the games?
rumours have suggested that Apple is working on a premium gaming section of its App Store, where high-end games could sell for $20.
But iPhone publishers have already struggled to keep premium games at $10 for very long. EA dropped SimCity’s price 20% to $8 after about a month in the App Store, and top-50 iPhone app prices fell 34% from late December to late February.
