    Hello all, I am a new user here but thought that I would share an observation

    I am a developer and I released a new game tonight. The interesting thing is that when I went to release the 1.1 update the Developers Console had some new options.

    Before when submitting an app I had 3 location options
    - All Current and Future Locations
    - United Kingdom
    - United States

    But tonight I now have 8 location options
    - All Current and Future Locations
    - Austria
    - Czech Republic
    - Germany
    - Netherlands
    - Poland
    - United Kingdom
    - United States

    These new location options are something that were promised to developers in the 12/30/08 email that announced the plans for paid apps...

    I am hoping this means paid apps are coming soon

    Does this mean that we are going to see country specific apps ??

    If so I think we may loose out here in the UK and Europe, as I would have thought the vast majority of developers where in the US
    Especially when you take into consideration the population of the UK compared to the US

    I don't think you're going to lose out on the option to see apps from other areas. But better filtering of apps you don't want to see (i.e. being in the UK or US and not having "Chinese Only" apps show up in your market)
