EA Games $0.99 App Store sale begins

EA Games has kicked off its App Store games sale, offering dozens of iPhone and iPad apps for under a dollar as the company prepares for the holiday season. Titles in the promotion (which has started with a £0.69 sale in the UK, and is expected to spread to the US imminently) include FIFA 11, Mirror's Edge and Transformers: Dark of the Moon HD on the iPad, as well as Need for Speed Undercover, SimCity Deluxe and Ultimate Mortal Kombat on the iPhone. Check out the full list after the cut.

While EA Games' deals do offer a few bargains for would-be iOS gamers, the company has a more strategic ambition in mind than simply offering holiday cheer. Apple's App Store team goes on vacation for eight days over the Christmas period, during which time the download store's various charts are frozen.

Developers who have secured a place on those charts - by suddenly selling thousands of copies of $0.99 games, for instance - can expect a huge surge of sales when a new batch of iPhone, iPad and iPod touch owners open their toys on December 25. Last year, EA managed to grab eight of the ten spots on the paid games chart.
