Play Store 1-Year Anniversary Sale Now Live In The US - Will Continue All Week, Here Are The Deals So Far

The Play Store sale we spotted kicking off in Australia earlier today has started hitting the US this evening, marking the 1-year anniversary of the Play Store. The deals so far are mostly songs and various in-app purchase / offer discounts, but the splash page for the promotion indicates there will be even more deals as the week goes on.

Here are the deals so far.

Yeah, it isn't our favorite Play Store promo, either - a lot of these are rehashes, and some of them barely qualify as 'deals' (who can't find the pilot episode of Breaking Bad for free?).

Wondering Why EA's Worms Left The Play Store? New Owner Says EA Was Slacking On Updates, Hurting The Brand

The original Worms landed on the Play Store way back in early 2011 (when it was still the Android Market), but the launch was far from perfect. Device compatibility was lacking, and force closes all too common. A while back, the game was actually removed from the Play Store.

In fact, it was the Worms franchise's new owner that requested it be taken down. According to Team 17 Digital, EA was "not supporting OS updates," and the company asked for the game to be removed because it "didn't want to damage the brand." Yikes.

ASUS MeMO Pad Smart 10 (ME301T) Review: An Amazing Budget Tablet With One Huge Downside

When I first read the specs and saw pictures of the MeMO Pad Smart, the only thing that popped into my mind was this is just like a TF300, minus the dock. It was beyond me why ASUS would even build a tablet that is essentially identical to one of its other tablets. Sure, the price is $50 lower, but still – is there really a market for this?
