EDIT: John Carmack chimed in and here's how you should decide which version to buy. If you have a..
  • iPad or 4th gen iPod/iPhone - Get the Rage HD version for sure. Non HD will work too (even on the iPad as thats also a universal app) but the graphics will be blurry.
  • 3rd gen iPod/iPhone - Both versions will work but the HD version wont run as smoothly as the Non HD version. But if you plan to upgrade to 4th Gen device or an iPad soon, HD version will be the best value for you.
  • Older devices - SD version it is. HD wont even download on anything below 3rd gen so there isnt even a choice.

I haven't really read through the thread, but how are the controls? Is it like Time Crisis?

Someone please answer. So does the HD version run on a iPod touch 3G? I'm getting the hd version because next week I'm getting a 4g iPod and don't wanna pay three dollars for both versions.

Damn, with such significant difference between HD/SD (certain objects removed, much blurrier textures, no AA) I really want to get the HD version for my 3GS but I also really wanna know just how much it 'hitches' since I'm pretty sensitive to framerates.

Acc to Carmack's post on TA front Page, it does, but not as smoothly as the SD version will..

We wanted to make the HD version only for iPad and 4G, but there was no way to prevent a 3GS from buying it. We wanted a selector base either on ram > 128 or resolution > 480, but no such option exists. The 3GS will hitch a bit more playing the HD version, and the extra resolution doesn't matter much on it, so I recommend 3GS owners get the SD version unless they think they are going to upgrade soon. Cut down the monster download...

If you play the SD vrsion on an iPad, you will complain about the blurry graphics blown up so large, but it works fine.

Gyro support

Yes, the game uses the gyros when available, and they are significanwtky better than the accelerometers.

Thats awesome to hear! I was already at instant buy, but it just keeps getting more appealing!

Damn it, now I need to know:
- just how much does it 'hitch'?
- Just how big is the graphical difference?
(perhaps that screenshot comparison was with the SD version running on a lower-than-3GS device where it disabled AA, bump maps and some game objects or perhaps that happens on any device with the SD version, I just don't know)

Anti aliasing

The game does not have anti aliasing enabled. I had it working for the quake con demo, but i disabled it because it had a huge performance penalty, which I still don't fully understand. A tiled graphics chip should have much less AA overhead than a frame buffer based one. I still need to follow up on this.
