The World Cup app they don't want you to have
Rather kindly, EA have decided to provide WoSblog with a handy and timely illustration of why you might want a US App Store account.
For the opening weekend of the World Cup only, the multinational software giant is celebrating what it appears to believe is a match between the USA and Great Britain on Saturday, by slashing the price of 2010 FIFA World Cup to a bargain $0.99 (down from the previous $6.99).
Sadly, the pricing of the app is rather less multinational – while the US price equates to just 59p, British FIFA fans are expected to pay FIVE TIMES as much, with the UK App Store maintaining its £2.99 price point for the game.
So if you can manage to sort yourself out a US funding source in the next three days, and you fancy playing the official World Cup game without getting ripped off by a 400% markup, you now know what to do.
