Discounted Apple Apps – Lego the Lord of the Rings
Here’s one of the key problems facing Nintendo (NTDOY) and Sony (SNE) in the portable game market: Lego Lord of the Rings goes for $19.99 for Nintendo’s 3DS but publisher Warner Brothers (TWX) offers the title — along with many other premium Apple apps — for just $4.99 in the iTunes store.
And that iOS app version can be played by everyone in the house with an Apple iPhone or iPad, not just the person with a cartridge.
To make things worse (for Nintendo), Warner Brothers is one of the publishers that participate in the holiday app sale. Lego Lord of the Rings joins the ranks of discounted Apple apps, going for just $2.99.
