how does it work?

(this post has just turned into a @clauds moment*piaks forehead*)

while introducing GeoDefense to uncle vincent on saturday, a question popped into my head.

how do they earn? because a game is $0.99 everywhere, every currency. so wont they earn close to nothing in places where the exchange rate is lower?

like S$0.99 is prolly abt US$0.66? so they will earn more in some countries and make a loss in some?

anyone can explain?(:

  1. I think they earn by volume.

    Imagine if you develop something over a course of 2 weeks and then you get 20,000 people buying it at 99c.

    That’s almost 20k.

  2. @krisandro ah yes, the store takes a cut also…but yeah, because it costs so little, volume is the key.

    And if they’re not out for money, then giving something for free makes for a good item in one’s portfolio 🙂

  3. hahaha. erm *shifty eyes* i just know that its in US dollars everywhere! i bet my sister dontknow either. hahaha.
