At the last Quakecon I took a show of hands poll, and it was interesting to see how almost as many people there had an Android device as an iOS device. But when I asked how many peple had spent 20 bucks on a game in the Android store, there was a big difference. You’re just not making money in the Android space as you are in the iOS space.

It’s hard to make a rational business decision to say I want to take resources from something else and put them on this. We did actually hire a person to be our Android guy, but it looks like he’s going to get stuck on iOS development!

Who in the heck would even pay $20 for an android or ios game? I took a look at the market, and $5 was pretty typical for a high end game. Maybe the ios guys are just used to the idea of paying more... you know, magical and all that stuff.

the same people who pay $30-$40 on a ds or psp game. these android devices are closing the gap on the handheld performance while ios has surpassed them in the ipad2.

a good game is worth that much. i find it surprising that people thing $5 is too much for some apps when on winmo $10 was cheap.
