I wonder what their sales are like. I really wanted to buy FF I, II, III but the price tags really threw me off.

Also, I like it how they say American gamers are used to pay less for mobile games. Which is true. The app market is highly devalued. But that's definitely another topic for another time.

I think it's ludicrous no matter how you look at it. Some of the best games on the iOS retailed at less than $10, a large majority at a much lower price now.

Well TWEWY Solo Remix shot into the Top 50 Purchased Apps the very day after it came out, so obviously its working in some form.

But yeah, I think that's fair. They provide excellent games and I'm going to be paying more than there iOS prices if they were on any other platform. Final Fantasy III was worth every dollar I spent to buy the iPad version, and others were the same ("TWEWY for only 20 dollars!? Hell yeah!")

Indeed, the western market is used to paying less for their games. But Squenix aren't western developers, and if they're going to take the time and effort to make a 30 dollar game, its going to feel like a 30 dollar game when I have it.

Square Enix is one of my favourite game developers. It delivers console games and deserves more money than such apps as Angry Birds (how the hell did it hit top 1?!?!), Temple Run ?? lol ..

Square's games really are some of the best mobile games available. I'd say the price is rightfully justified. I've only played two ports (Final Fantasy Tactics and Chrono Trigger) but both have been well worth the purchase. I've found it best to turn my iPhone on airplane mode if I'm going for a long-term gaming session, haha. Too many texts and calls during a long stretch of FFTA can be overly annoying.
