In a series of tweets on Friday, Kanye West reflected how mad he was about the existence of iPad in-app purchases in kids games. “F*** any game company that puts in-app purchases on kids games!!!”, he tweeted. Apparently, Glu Games, the company that produces the very successful Kim Kardashian: Hollywood game, must also take note since their game has in-app purchases as well, some of which are as high as $40 (via CNET).
West continued to express his anger with the following tweets:
“That makes no sense!!! We give the iPad to our child and every 5 minutes there’s a new purchase!!!”
“If a game is made for a 2 year old, just allow them to have fun and give the parents a break for Christ sake.”
Of course Yeezy isn’t the first parent to be upset over kids being able to make useless in-app purchases in games. A 5-year old once spent over $2,500 in less than 15 minutes by playing a free game on his parents’ iPad, though Apple did offer a refund the end.
How strongly do you agree with Kanye?
