$30 to $40 bucks for games that have been out for years and cost anywhere from FREE to $1.99 on all mobile devices?!?! Don't get me wrong Angry Birds can be fun but even with some new content that is insane!!
I may get this if the price drops or is released in the eShop for a much lower price (say, 7-10 dollars?). I know there's new content and graphics and stuff, but that really isn't worth the extra twenty dollars in my opinion.
There is absolutely no chance this will get reduced by $30 down to $10... It's possible down the line for the retail version if it's a really big failure, but that's about it. Nintendo still charges $50 for a two year old game like Mario Galaxy 2 and when they release New Super Mario Bros 2 on the eShop it's still going to be the same $39.99. Sony does a little discount for Vita games on the PS Store, but it's only about $5. That's the most you'll ever see lol
Rovio would never make the game totally free, but they'd definitely only charge a few dollars for it. But honestly, the iPhone or iPad in my mind is still the best way to play this game. Much better graphics than most 3DS games, only $1 a piece, and the finger swiping works perfectly for it.
of course i do lol, had one since day one... how could 3DS look better if the iPhone 4S and iPad have the highest resolution of any mobile devices on the market? and a dual core processor? and more RAM? Plus, have you seen Infinity Blade II? even the lighting effects in that game are better than anything on the 3DS and most games on the Vita lol
Joseph, it is obvious to me that you do not understand graphics as much as you think you do. Resolution =/= graphics. If it did, then I can play minecraft on a really high res screen and tell you "Minecraft has better graphics than Assassin's Creed 3 because I'm playing Minecraft at a higher resolution." If you also want to know something, most of the "good graphics" games on the iPhone and iPad have very limited movement and freedom in the game, and very little interaction with the environment. There's a reason why an iPhone and iPad actually can do LESS with more power than the 3DS and Vita. It's not a dedicated gaming system. Also I have seen Infinity Blade II, have you seen Resident Evil: Revelations?
Let me add another thing. iOS needs a lot more of its power to run its operating system. It's the same reason why the PS3 and 360 when they came out was much more capable than the PCs in terms of graphics performance using much less power than the PCs. The 3DS is also a dualcore, and the Vita is a quadcore. The Vita actually blows the iPhone and iPad out of the water in terms of gaming, and the 3DS is obviously better in gaming as well in more than just one way. Graphics? The only reason iPad and iPhone have better "graphics" is because of how limited their environments and controls make the game, creating severe limitations to allow boosts in visuals that can be supported by its high res screen. That's why ALL you can do in Infinity Blade is dodge and attack, and only in certain directions. You can move around and interact with your environment in 3DS and Vita games, and much more. Also, iPhone and iPads aren't bought for gaming and even if they were, they are much more expensive alternatives for a much less deep experience.
That's true, but Infinity Blade is just one example... Most iOS games aren't like that, and have more open worlds... The Dark Knight Rises game takes place in a fully open world game and I think a new Spider-Man does too... I have seen very little of Revelations I admit.
that's all I really play.. not sure why me saying that a lot of iOS games loil better make people think I enjoy it more. that's far from the truth.... in fact right now with Theatrhythm, Mario Kart, and Uncharted, I've been playing more 3DS and vita than anything!
To the person who said Nintendo still charges 50 dollars for games like Galaxy 2... it's because Nintendo exclusives usually retain their higher price because Nintendo wants it to. If this game does poorly, Acti/Rovio can change the price because they're the publisher.
