None for me unfortunately, I've bought the ones worth having already :(

Still, from the Facebook page it's looking like NOVA 2 will be 59p on Valentines :)

Even though I bought about 6 games today, I hope the EA sale kicks over to this side of the pond - a couple of titles I'd like to get.

OK even though I hated the demo I grabbed Megaman 2 since it was only 59p (and it adds another MM2 port to my collection) and they must have overhauled the controls as its nowhere near as bad as it was before. Still not close compared to a physical D Pad but now at least classic mode is playable enough (breezed through Flashmans stage). Screen size is way to small though, unless I'm missing an option somewhere there are huge borders around the entire screen which really sucks.

In addition to the ton of other games I've already bought in the recent sales I've just bought Super Monkey Ball 2 at 59p, Pac-Man Remix at 59p, Shrek Kart at 59p and I Love Katamari at £1.79. :)

Lets not forget NBA Jam was released yesterday for £2.99.

Used to love this so may pick it up even before the inevitable EA price drop :D

I'm being petty and wont be buying anymore EA games !

Gameloft, Sega, Capcom have all had huge sales. So have EA but EA is US only, pathetic !

Granted their business and huge profit margins probably wont be affected by my petty 'i'm not buying NBA Jam for £2.99' but its the principle !

(Going to be difficult for me though when the next Madden game comes out though !)

The reason is EA's US and overseas arms are separate entities on the App Store. The reverse also happens sometimes—i.e. that the UK store has a sale but the US one doesn't. Swings and roundabouts.

I currently have 118 paid for apps :oops: Although I've had an iOS device since Christmas 2009

I really want NFS Hot Pursuit but like most of you, I refuse to pay £2.99 because I know fine well two days after I pay that it'll be 59p
