Exclusive: Gameloft’s App Store Exploit

Joel Taveras writes, "As long as there’s a vulnerable system in place, there will always be people who wish to capitalize on it. According to a former Gameloft employee, that appears (or at least appeared) to be the case at the company. The French mobile games developer and publisher, founded by Ubisoft co-founder Michel Guillemot, is a publicly traded company that is currently near the top of the mobile gaming totem poll. Somewhere along the way though, it seems that the publisher implemented some less than genuine, perhaps even sleazy practices, in order to have their games attain that level of success." (Gameloft, Industry, iPad, iPhone)

Wow, making accounts and buying your own games? smh.

Spending a few dollars on your own games in order to make a few million bucks is a gamble I'm willing to take every time If I was in their shoes. But the practice is sleazy as hell.

Well this is Gameloft. Other achievements include shamelessly ripping of console games, it's so blatantly arrogant they dont even change the name much (Modern Combat 3 - Includes airstrikes, uavs, and helicoptors... sound familiar?). They make me sick sometimes, the worst was ripping off Max Payne 3, and getting thousands of sales which caused Max Payne Mobile to fail.

Bottom line is, their a bunch of assh*les.

Game loft cooking the books and making crappy games look shiny. Oh the shame.

I highly doubt Sony and Microsoft are doing this. Buying an Arcade game for $10-$15 100 times isn't the same as buying a $1-$5 game 100 times.
