    With all the releases for the iphone, iTouch, then the new retina display iPhone 4, and the iPad and having to buy all these games 2 and even 3 times (especially when they're on sale) - I think that a new slogan would be in order... I'm not sure what the right one would be, but something on the order of

    I'm getting iP'd and iHD'd?

    I'm getting regular and HD'd?

    the appstore double whammy?

    Please note - I am NOT complaining - I actually find it sort of amusing, but everytime I turn around, there is another game that is coming out at great (and sometimes not so great) prices for different platforms, and as I have the different platforms, I like to take advantage of those platform abilities. I'd love to offer a contest, but as I am not a dev, I can't really. Would love to hear some different suggestions from you guys / gals out there that feel the same way...

    I think "I'm being in-app purchase'd and snookered by the top charts'd" would be quite appropriate for most folks. If they aren't too lazy to say it, of course ;)

    My feeling is that this will drag the igames to an evolution like there's been on PC during the second half of the 90's. Game designers had to face more different displays than before on a same platform, because players started use more different stuff from monitors to video cards. Gradually this killed hand crafted graphics for using 3D allowing an easier adaptation to different display size.

    ideveloper started face a similar problem with the iPad, then came iphone 4 making the problem more frontal, and if rumors are right there will be a smaller ipad making it more complicated. As the CPU will rise more and more dev will probably also gave up on hand crafted graphics to focus on 3D.
