Default "Premium Games" Section in the Works

"Apple is planning to introduce a premium games section to its App Store where it will sell a range of iPhone games for $19.99, sources tell However, the initiative will only be open to a restricted number of large publishers, rather than the thousands of smaller developers currently selling their titles on the main App Store. The rumour has been buzzing for a few months now - we even included it in our predictions for 2009 feature - but our sources suggest that it's now actually happening."

Whether or not Apple creates a separate store for "Premium Games," developers who develop such titles are still going to have to compete against lower-priced apps and games.  Sometimes I wonder if these developers spend as much time on their apps as they do whinging about the pricing thereof.  Anyway, this "innovation" is probably coming soon, so be prepared to spend $20 for your next Bejeweled clone.  Personally, I have a bad feeling that the recently announced Peggle for the iPhone is going to be one of the first "Premium" titles just because Popcap knows that the demand will push people to pay pretty much whatever they charge for it.  That, dear readers, would be sad.
