I was thinking about it and it is probably a publicity stunt because it makes the people who haven't downloaded it rush to get it which generates even more revenue. It's a smart move but a foolish move.

I think the reaction of the general public has been more pathetic than anything.

It's very revealing of how ridiuclous the mobile gaming market is.

I am selling my ipad right now, or better ill buy ipad, download the game (jealbreaking -> Torrent) then sell it 3x the orginal price, no seriously theres alot of dumb people.

Death threats? What is wrong with people?

Some people can't see the difference between reality and flappy bird...

Uugh! A mediocre Iphone/Andriod game... Death threats seriously? Bl**dy casuals ... Was this close throwing someone's phone out of the train because i heard that sound over and over again. Luckily i give the guy a push and his streak was over :D
