Why would many of these games prompt people to purchase arcade? Many are already free on the app store
Because the Arcade versions wont have all the BS In -App- Purchases. Ahhhh the glory days of iOS games.

I wish all the old Angry Bird games would be put in there (and without ads). They no longer get updates and I can see them getting removed from getting downloaded in the future. There was also a good Mortal Kombat port that was 32-bit I wish could come back.
