Angry Birds and many other Xbox Live games for Windows Phone are now permanently reduced to 99 cents
Out of the entire bunch on the list, Angry Birds probably stands out most prominently, but it’s nice to see it and six other titles dropping down to a mere 99 cents. As for the others, it includes Burn the Rope, De Blob, Doodle God, IonBallEX, Max the Magic Marker, and Toy Soldiers: Boot Camp. As we’ve mentioned already, it seems that these permanent price drops on these titles coincide with the Nokia Lumia 900’s release,
As the platform continues to build is user base, we can only hope to see more 99 cent games on the Marketplace right from the start – as opposed to games that are $5 and up.

Google's Play store only earns 20% that of iOS for the whole of 2011.
You should know that because of the rampant piracy with sideloading and fragmentation issue, developers would rather place ads on apps to earn money.
iOS is simply pay once and you get it ad-free.
That is the reason why most apps on Google's play store is free.

Yes rampant piracy. Because the majority of andoird users are even capable of rooting their phones.
Implying developers dont relese both a ad supported and paid ad free version.

It's about time that they reduced some of the prices for their games.

Good timing, too. I finally got sucked in and addicted to Angry Birds this weekend.
