Apple brings games to Costa Rican and Qatari App Stores

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Apple on Thursday sent an email to developers announcing availability of games on the Costa Rican and Qatari app stores, bringing the category to the region for the first time ever.

Games


As seen above in Apple's email, provided by reader Gregg, the new Games category will feature apps that have already been approved and cleared for sale in both Costa Rica and Qatar will be available for download immediately. The new Games section will be populated with apps automatically.

A quick check with the Costa Rican and Qatari App Stores show availability of top games like Angry Birds Go, Clumsy Ninja and more. The store is already built out with localized collections for the holiday season, as well as new and updated apps.

To make sure their apps show up in Costa Rica and Qatar, developers must recheck or change territory availability settings in the Rights and Pricing section of the Manage Your Apps module in iTunes Connect.

So... why on earth were there no games available on those localized app stores previously? What am I missing?

Possibly the same reason the iOS7 features aren't available in every country:

There are a lot of legal things going on. Many countries have an iTunes Store without movies and/or TV Shows.
I’d rather have a better product than a better price.

Yeah but...games!  Talk about fun police!  Who would say you can have an app store but you're not allowed to play solitaire?  Seriously?
