It looks like I spoke too soon! The North American version of Ghost Trick is coming out for iOS today at approximately 11:00 PM EST! It’s a universal app and the first two chapters will be free. The full game will be available via in app purchase for $9.99.
I could not be more pleased by this news. I’ll be sure to pick it up as soon as I get an iPad 3.
I’ll also take this time to address the perception of price for iOS games. I have no problem with paying $10 for a downloadable game with substance like Ghost Trick. It’s what I pay on the PlayStation Network and I’ve paid $5+ for games with much less. Games do not need to be $0.99 to be an attractive proposition for me.
