Microsoft Announces Details Around the Windows 8 App Store Pricing Rules

While the announcement of the new Microsoft App store pricing is final, the Windows 8 app store itself is was a little weak in the consumer preview, at least in terms of quality.

All this should change on October 26th, the official, announced release date for Windows 8 at which point app developers will then have option to charge anywhere from $1.49 at the lowest possible price, all the way up to $999.99 for the most expensive app… good luck with that!. And while not many people will argue that $999.99 is too low, many will argue that not allowing $0.99 cent apps will create an unbalance in competition with iOS users. Read the full story here.
