Is Square Enix's "Defense" on Mobile Game Prices Strong Enough? | GamesFinity.com

While there are those who swear Square Enix can do no wrong, there are others who insist that its marketing could use a little work. Recently, the explosive outrage is being directed towards the mobile games that Square Enix has begun to market over the years and the prices they're demanding. While any gamer would be thrilled about buying a game for only $15, that price doesn't include the premium fee one has to pay to even play! Also, when compared to other mobile games that can be bought on iTunes or other such marketing sites for around $10, it's enough to offset the balance of Square Enix's popularity.

Final Fantasy Dimensions isn't just a 10 minute mini game; it's pretty much Final Fantasy V in mobile platform. The fact that it's a full length game justifies the price, but it was a strange move for Square Enix to exclusively release a game like this to casual audiences who are expecting to pay $1 - $5 for a waiting-in-line kind of game.

SE prices their games however they feel like.
IF ios games were that cheap then consumers will start to expect handheld games like 3DS and Vita(if they make any games for that) to be cheaper aswell.

FFIII was just a cheap port, could easily have been priced lower but since it is not a mainstream game they thought it was better to charge at high price and have only thousands of people to purchase it.

Dimensions prices is a little too high, they should have just released that game across all platforms digitally. Also the iPad makes the game look like crap and controls are kinda rubbish on the screen.

I think it's a little overpriced, but if the exact same game was released on PSP for the same price, nobody would complain. Funny isn't it?
