    Apparently, the price for Monopoly has doubled from $4.99 to $9.99 in one day. What's up with that?

    Bla1ze needs to update this blog post: Monopoly now available for the BlackBerry PlayBook | CrackBerry.com

    EDIT: See post 4, below. Apparently, when you check out, it costs $4.99. That is what PayPal charged me when I just purchased it at 7:12 Eastern.

    EA had a sale on the 12th where many things they sold on their website and mobile stores were discounted.

    Monopoly happened to launch during that sale.

    Still working for me that way, which got a sale from me on it. Worth it at $5 price point but dunno about the $10 price point.

    Ok suppose the sale ends...

    Now what will happen if a user who purchased Monopoly for $4.99 then deletes it. Now that same user wants to re-install Monopoly... upon attempting to re-install Monopoly will the user be hit with "The price of this application has changed..."?

    What will happen? Will the user have to pay the difference?

    Is there a FREE trial version, IMO....all aps should have a trial version to see whether its worth buying ......you even get a 15 day trial period when you buy a new phone.

    that shouldnt happen. once you buy, its yours and you can only reinstall. its updates that appworld can ask for more money. think of it as game+DLC. if EA ever (which i doubt) asks for money for DLC then it'll say the price of this has changed.

    ahah the game is worth 4.99. i mentioned this in the other thread but i wouldn't pay 9.99 for it.

    i suggest you guys jump on the game for the cheap price before it increases.

    Ok gotcha... I guess you only get the "Prics of application has changed..." message when you download a free app that is no longer free. No?

    Its worth ten bucks. It plays a lot faster than I expected, its very good overall. I bought it yesterday for 5 bucks but now that I play it, its worth more, at least as much as Dead Space.

    It was more like a price error (to our advantage). The App was released recently (2 days ago or so) and the price went from $4.99 to $9.99 within 24 hours. Thankfully the PayPal system doesn't update quickly enough which resulted in most of us taking advantage Someone might be getting fired as I type...

    That person might have even made some money for RIM, because I don't think many people would have purchased the app at 10 bucks... but who knows
