You are problem thinking...huh? Watch for a bunch of games to be released in the next couple days as we are nearing a lockdown of iTunes. What does this mean to me? Well between 12/23 and 12/28, game developers will not be able to release a new game/update or adjust the price of games available at the App Store.
The downtime is expected, as Apple regularly takes the developer service offline during the holidays. So when you unwrap your new iPad from your girlfriend or boyfriend for Christmas, the App Store will remain stagnant to give you the weekend to shop for your new apps.
