Apple Allows Game Publisher Big Fish To Offer Subscriptions

According to Bloomberg reporting that Apple has allowed games publisher Big Fish the capability of offering monthly subscriptions. Customers would be able to subscribe for access to a dozens of titles, at the monthly cost of $6.99. This kind of subscription is familiar among magazine and newspaper publishers, but represents a first for App Store publishers.

The games will initially be available via WiFi only, accessible from Big Fish’s data centers. The initial offering will cost users $4.99 per month, but that’s expected to increase to $6.99 early next year as the company adds titles. Games include “Mystery Case Files” and the “Majong Towers”.

Its yearly cost would bring this to around $84. Seems to me that the low cost associated with owning games is more attractive then renting.
