And you know what means, right guys? You can now pick up Angry Birds for 20 cents less than before! Finally Apple has moved the pricing of its App store to US pricing. Meaning that $1.19 Apps now cost 99 cents. Hear ye gaming publishers – you can follow suit and make sure we never get gouged on Steam/PSN/Xbox LIVE again!
These prices follow through for more expensive games and apps. Meaning that $2.49 apps are now $1.99, and apps costing $3.99 are now $2.99. The one exception is US$4.99 apps cost $5.49, but this is an awesome step forward.
It signals Apple’s confidence in the stability of the Aussie dollar – which is the typical excuse given by publishers for the price of video games in this country. In the grand scheme of things this is an interesting move – Apple is essentially saying that they are confident that US/Aus dollar parity is here to stay.
