Games The rumour mill for the next generation of video game consoles has been churning out some juicy stuff these past few months. While Nintendo has laid most of its cards out on the table, Microsoft and Sony have remained tight-lipped, probably because their consoles are still seeing increased sales. So, we have to rely on rumours, and those rumours have one thing in common: Microsoft and Sony want to eliminate the used games market.

It seems to me the answer is obvious, make the Android version $1 and if that doesn't work simply don't sell the Android version. one thing I have noticed is that Apple users are accustomed to paying for things, Android users really have no desire to. Have you thought about replacing the Android version with an ad supported model? Several other games and apps have done this and are doing quite well in the android market.

In the end one really has to adapt to the market and the users, do this and there will always be a way to monetize your app if its popular, but as we have seen with both the PC and the consoles the DRM is quickly cracked and then you just wasted the money and time to build DRM in for nothing.
