Yesterday Windows Phone Central reported that Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition, the first game in the Sally’s series for Windows Phone, had been reduced in price from $4.99 to $2.99. While many believed the price change to represent the return of the Windows Phone Xbox Live Deal of the Week program, we did say it could have simply been a permanent price drop...
Game House provided us with the definitive answer today: the $2.99 price on Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition is a permanent price drop. The Windows Phone 7 version’s price is now identical to the iOS version. I’m sure we can all appreciate the recent trend towards fairer pricing of mobile Xbox Live titles, though there are still occasional exceptions (darn that Little Acorns).
Potato or potahto?
Faced with the choice of Sally’s Salon Luxury Edition or the newer Sally’s Spa for the same price, which one should you pick (if only one)? Well, Sally’s Salon is longer and easier, while Sally’s Spa is shorter and harder. But Spa does add new minigames and a new beauty product sales mechanic, so some may find the gameplay more fulfilling. As a fan of time management games, I’ve enjoyed both immensely. Who cares how feminine their themes? Nobody who is secure in his masculinity, that’s who. Check out my review of Sally’s Salon here; I’ll have a full review of Spa soon!
What of the Deal of the Week?
The permanent price drop on Sally’s Salon is both good and bad news. I mean, price drops are always welcome! But we all love the Deal of the Week program and have missed it during its absence. Yet the DOTW is rumored to be returning soon – perhaps after Windows Phone 8 launches. We’re hard at work finding out the truth behind its disappearing actn, so stay tuned for exclusive details.
