EA launches its big holiday sale, more cheap apps as well
You knew this was coming. We've seen big App Store sales all week, and of course EA had to get in on the deals at some time. The company that essentially started the trend of big holiday sales is back, featuring tons of high profile apps for just a buck. Basically, if there's anything EA you want, go grab it now. Highlights include Mass Effect Infiltrator, Tetris for iPad, Plants vs. Zombies, Fifa Soccer 13, Need for Speed: Most Wanted and more (ooh, NBA Jam too). EA says it has 99 games available for US$0.99, so there's probably something in there worth spending a buck on.
Elsewhere, the excellent Arc Squadron is free thanks to Touch Arcade's Free Play program. Real Boxing is also down to a buck, Infinity Blade is 99 cents and the sequel is $2.99. And while this one isn't an app, it's worth mentioning that the to-do list Clear is also on sale for a buck.
Stay tuned. The App Store freeze starts on Friday, and the main goal for most of these developers is to get their apps listed in the top charts when the freeze goes into effect. So we've got one more full day to see big sales like this and the resulting boost for these apps.
