A marketing ploy with a much more powerful device, you mean.

It ought to be just like the iPad 3, but with smoother gameplay with effects on.

Wouldn't gameloft have to update the game so that the extra effects show up on native res?

maybe - maybe not, they can change the power of a gun without an update so maybe they could do something similar for the extra effects.

Yeah they would.
It's due an upgrade for the iPhone 5 anyway.

They can change certain things on the server side in multiplayer, the native res with effects is a device dependant change that would need to be done on the coding side so an upgrade would be needed.

If you update the the code, you update the server which is the same thing... Besides the graphics in the store would change so I think they *should* need an update for both but since they don't the resolution MAY be fixed.

I'm sorry, but when i referred to updating the code of the game I was referring to the engine of the game.
Changing the res to native with full effects on iPad 4 can't be done on the server side, its simply not possible.
I may not have been clear.

Ah, I see, this is for a certain device "Different version literally!" Agreed now.

Still confused if they would need to update all devices... I don't think so... Right?

Well, the update would have to go live on the App Store and all devices would download and install the update but they all wouldn't implement the changes.
That's one of the issues with iOS and the App Store, a device specific update can't be produced without all devices having to download the changes even if an older wont actually do anything with the changes to the app.

How is Nova on the Mini? Same frame rate as if playing on iPad 2?
