EA and Sega cut the prices of 27 games in Easter App Store sale

EA and Sega cut the prices of 27 games in Easter App Store sale
In a rerun of the rush of sales sparked in honour of Valentine's Day, EA and Sega have unveiled a series of temporary price cuts to some of their top iOS releases.

EA is leading the line, dropping a total of 23 prices from April 21 in the UK, France and Germany.

The apps involved include both iPhone and iPad releases, with key franchises such as Dead Space, FIFA and Need for Speed part of the price cull.

Big and small

Indeed, the line-up is remarkably similar to the US only 'I love 99c' sale back in February, although this time appears to be specifically aimed at the European market.

Sega's promotion is somewhat smaller – consisting of just four releases – but likewise includes some of the firm's biggest iOS releases.

Available on both sides of the Atlantic, Super Monkey Ball, Super Monkey Ball 2 and Altered Beast have seen their prices drop from $2.99/£1.79 to 99c/59p, while Chu Chu Rocket HD now comes in at $2.99/£1.79, having previously sold for $4.99/£2.99.



Sega claims its sale will run until April 25, while EA has said its line-up of low prices will be on offer for a 'limited time only'.
