    Any ideas? I thought it would be released about the same as BiA.
    Anyone have a more firm date?

    This game looks pretty sweet. One thing I'm worried about is how Gameloft will price it. (I think it's Gameloft's game anyway)

    Someone told me that the game would take at least 15 hours - I think - to complete the game. I'm really worried that Gameloft will price the game at around $15-20 since it's a lot longer than most games, it's 3D and highly detailed. This could mean that other companies start pricing games around that price and that's way too much for me. I'm already spending like $30-50 a month on apps, I can't afford anymore :S

    Here, it says that this will be out today for the affordable price of 10 bucks.

    Yeah right...

    I guess that GL won't release a game for more than 10 bucks.
    They haven't done it with BIA, so they won't do it with HOS.
    But this is only my opinion.

    That is a good chance of today. If you check the release date for BIA it was released on Nov. 23. It took Apple a little over a week to upload the game to itunes. So, we might see this by the EOD. I can't wait and hope it's out today.

    My friend that goes back to the fact there needs to be quality control in the App Store. The problem is Apple is just getting all these games from developers and uploading them after doing some tests on the software.

    I can't understand why the controls let this crap into the appstore. This is madness!

    that would ruin apples democracy of letting anyone put something on. and they would sell way less app-making software.

    I think it is coming very soon, Gameloft updated their homepage to say that Hero of Sparta was "just released" on the regular mobile platforms, and the game page is live, so hopefully the iPhone version will be here shortly. Can't wait for it, looks amazing!

    I can't see this App selling for more than $10. I know they are charging only $5 for the regular mobile phone version. Yes. The Iphone version is in complete 3-D and cost more to make the game, but I still can't see them charging more than $4 above the regular phone versions.

    Looking at that screenshot, I actually prefer it to be 2D if that means classic side-scrolling platform a la Golden Axe.

    Hey guys, I think I found the official release date for the iPhone. It's December 8th, so 3 days from now (Monday)!

    Here's where I found this info:
    http://www.iphonic.tv/2008/11/iphone_application_watch_hero.html

    I think Gameloft just released the game for other mobile devices today, but the iPhone version comes out 12/8/08. :)
