Easter weekend is coming up – and of course that means something just a little different to when I was a kid. It means insane quantities of chocolate being bought and consumed, egg hunts, gift baskets (apparently the Easter Bunny is now Mini Santa Claus) – and of course it means lots of good holiday weekend sales on iPad (and iOS) apps.
iPad app sales have already started appearing – and some top-tier games are available at big discounts. Here’s a handful of top EA titles I’ve noticed today:
Real Racing 2 HD: More than 50% off this weekend – down from $6.99 to $2.99
Flight Control HD: 80% off – down from $4.99 to $0.99
Command and Conquer Red Alert for iPad: $4.99 down to $0.99
Spy Mouse HD for iPad: $2.99 down to $0.99
Monopoly for iPad: $6.99 down to $1.99
And a great baseball game from Com2uS:
Homerun Battle 3D for iPad: Free for today only to mark baseball’s Opening Days this week (usually $4.99).
That’s a fine start if you’re looking for some great games at great prices for your iPad. Real Racing 2 HD is the gold standard for iPad racing games, and works nicely with AirPlay Mirroring to an Apple TV / HDTV.
I’m sure there will be plenty more great sales from EA and other this weekend – and I’ll try to add some updates here as I spot others. Please feel free to share any you have noticed in the comments.
