Capcom, Sega Join In With Valentine’s iPhone Sales

Here’s what you need to know: Street Fighter IV for iPhone is down from its once-lofty price point of $9.99 to a lowly $0.99. So you’ll want to go buy that. Right now.

Okay, now that you’re back, here’s the rest of the low-down: Capcom and Sega are offering a bunch of their iOS games for just a buck, joining the likes of Gameloft and EA Mobile. Those sales seem to be continuing, at least for the time being, so now’s a great time to get a hold of a few of the iPhone’s best games (especially for the more “hardcore” crowd) on the cheap.

Capcom and Sega’s sales are a little less interesting than EA’s and Gameloft’s. For Capcom’s part, there just aren’t a lot of games on offer — Street Fighter IV is a must-have (it looks amazing on the iPhone, and plays just as well), and Resident Evil 4: Platinum is pretty cool, too, but the company has only cut prices on 10 apps total. That also includes Devil May Cry 4 Refrain, which you should only buy if you absolutely must have DMC on your iPhone, even if it isn’t any fun.

Sega’s sale is nice, but the company’s apps tend to lag behind other publishers in terms of coolness. Sega likes to port its old games from the Master System and Genesis eras to the iPhone in order to get new sales out of them. Unfortunately, the system they use to emulate these games is pretty much universally terrible. Shinobi III and Virtua Fighter 2 are on sale, yes, but don’t expect them to be spectacular. A buck is actually a great price for them, because they’re a little disappointing at a higher rate.
