Modern day gaming companies typically put a significant amount of effort and dollars into marketing the game.

This in turn leads to a higher number of in-game purchases as well as other subscription based purchases.
If a gaming company charges $1.99 for a new game app but the cost of the download to the company is $2.00, the net result would be a loss of 1 cent per user app download.
