iTunes has amazing Black Friday deals on games
Unlike the Google Play Store, where the Black Friday deals were more impressive in the books, and music sections (although there were sales throughout the Play Store), Apple has Black Friday deals on some great games for iOS in the iTunes App Store. And, best of all, these aren't sales on little games that no one really cares about, these are deals on games from EA, Gameloft, SEGA, Namco Bandai, and CAPCOM.

The full list of games on sale can be found at the source, and it is extensive, so we'll just give some highlights. From EA, Plants vs Zombies for iPad and iPhone have dropped from $6.99 to just $0.99, and Battlefield: Bad Company 2, Dead Space (iPad and iPhone), and Monopoly are all down from $9.99 to $0.99. On EA's universal games, Burnout Crash is $0.99, and FIFA Soccer 13 is $2.99. From SEGA, ChuChu Rocket (iPad and iPhone) is just $0.99, and Sonic the Hedgehog 4: Episode 2 is $2.99. Both PAC-MAN and Ms. PAC-MAN are $1.99 each from Namco Bandai. And, from CAPCOM, Street Fighter X Tekken is $0.99.

There are a lot more games available on sale. Just be careful to check whether the game you're buying is for iPad, iPhone, or if it is a universal app, because not all games work on all Apple devices.

Battlefield: Bad Company 2 is not even available for Android, from what I've read Plants vs Zombies for Android is a sad watered down version of the iOS game and I also don't think its been priced at $6.99 for over a year (it's been $2.99 if I remember correctly), the Android version of monopoly is even worse than the iOS version (didn't think that was possible), Burnout Crash is not available for Android, Fifa Soccer 2013 is not available for Android, which is sad because its such a great game (at this point EA might as well just wait a couple of months and release Fifa 2014 next year and skip 2013 all together. But at least you have a Fifa 13 live wallpaper!!!). both Chuchu rocket and Sonic Hedgehog work well on both platforms (maybe because they're from the same company), the Pacman games work well on both too (I'd be surprised if it didn't because they're so extremely simplistic), and Street Fighter X Tekken is only for iOS, but once again there are like six different options of live wallpapers for you to chose from. I'm glad you enjoy the Play Store, because for years it has been my biggest annoyance with Android. And the sad thing is that these are all big named companies. The smaller the dev team is, the less likely Android is to have a version, and that's for everything, not just games.

And keep in mind that some of those high prices are because of iPad versions. For example, Monopoly and Plants vs Zombies are both originally $2.99 for iPhone/iPod touch

What you said is true . But i dont think devs should charge more for the ipad version because its just the same . They just charge you a couple of dollars more for just optimising it for the iPad , easy task

Some of the games actually take a lot of redesigning...not just making them bigger to fit the screen. I do think some of the iPad game prices are kind of high (Soulcalibur is $14.99), but if a game is good, I have no problem paying more, especially for indie developers.

iPad games are overpriced . i bought Asphalt 6 for the iphone version so i can install it at my ipod touch and ipad . iPad only version is expensive !
