To tide you over during the summer months, when the well of big, triple-A console games goes slightly dry, EA has slashed the prices of a bunch of its top-rated iPhone games by up to 80 per cent.
Well, EA Mobile is really calling it a “Back to School” Sale, but we’re ignoring that because it’s the second week of August, no one likes thinking about crawling to back to school, and that title is usually reserved for pencil cases and monochrome outfits.
