I still cant understand why the so called "HD" iPad versions cost more, when the iPhone versions get updated to the same quality for free.

Lucas Arts deserve the money. Not enough of these types of game around anymore. All first person shooters following the same dumb Hollywood blockbuster explosions aplenty formula.

That extra pixel size comes at a premium!



Agreed. I still think Ratchet and Clank is the best video game series ever created.

Not for iPhone 4 users though

Its like Angry Birds. 59p for a high res iPhone 4 version. Then its £5.99 for pretty much the same res on a bigger screen with a sluggish framerate.

Pixel size, not quantity.

I know it's a rip -off...it was a sarcastic comment.

I don't like the iPad premium either

But I suspect it is down to market size i.e. huge iPhone market & huge volumes vs smaller iPad market.

Or more likely, just a case of what price the market will bear!

I usually buy the iPhone versions and pixel double them for iPad because of this.
