Apple was smart to open the doors to the iPad section of the iTunes App Store ahead of the actual launch of the iPad, as it's giving consumers and content makers a chance to see what people are willing to pay for iPad games right out of the gate. Right now, the top end for games is $14.99.
At the moment, Electronic Arts is asking $14.99 for Need For Speed Shift and Activision's charging the same price for the iPad version of Call of Duty: World at War: Zombies.
Of course, very few people in the world have an iPad and the screen shots featured on the iTunes store don't provide a great idea of what the games will look like on an actual iPad.
Nonetheless, $14.99 appears to be the ceiling for iPad games for now, unless someone can point to something above that price point. There are some 700 games already lined up for iPad's launch.
The prices should eventually come down, as they did with the iPhone, after the launch period.
