Game developers attack Amazon Appstore for hurting prices

Game dev group attacks Amazon Appstore price rules

An International Game Developers Association e-mail on Thursday attacked the Amazon Appstore for hurting the prices for games.

They also criticized a familiar Amazon practice of discounting an app price on its own, which they saw as punishing developers by taking the profit out of a strong-selling app.
