^Yep its sad. I just recently sold my ipod touch 4th gen 64 gig (didnt get much for it and bought an ipod 5.

To be fair the ipod touch was 2 years old but its still frustrating when theres more and more games you cant play on it.

I would recommend upgrading an ipod, an iphone is a different matter as you often get some high priced monthly costs for the phone or a huge one off price for the iphone 5.

But i'm glad i've got my new device, looking forward one week from today to play Ravensword II on it

I'm curious as to why so many 4th Gen iPod owners don't just upgrade to an iPad or iPad mini instead of another iPod (especially if you primarily use it for gaming). I mean the costs are relatively the same, so that can't really be the issue. Is it size and portability? Personally, I used to do all of my gaming on my iPhone, but that all changed once I got my iPad 4. Now I rarely even fire up a game on my iPhone.

On the towns - I believe technically there are 3, and then some scattered houses here and there in various areas. The biggest is Aven North, which is basically a big city with tons of shops, including a furniture shop, hat shop, weapon and armor shops, and various other things to buy. The two larger towns also have jails.

Well i went from a 4th gen ipod 64 gig to a 5th gen 64 gig. Was a bit of a price difference as the ipod didnt sell for that much. Not interested in an ipad mini, i have an ipad 3 but i just prefer gaming on my ipod, much more portable, play anywhere i want, just prefer it.

Looks like i better explain to my wife why next thursday i'll be on my ipod playing this game all day long

Sad true, I give an example why: In USA iPhone 5 16GB is $199, in my country 16 490 Kč, this is $854...

Roger that, and thanks for expressing your view on it. I can definitely understand the portability aspect. Heck, I used to be the same way, however, I found that I never really played deep games (like Ravensword 2) when I was out and about. I just never had the time to really get into a game while waiting in a line or for an appointment. But, hey, as long as it works for you that's what's important! Good luck with the wife! Mine's been pretty understanding during the beta test, but I was "working" so she usually didn't get irritated.

Yea same here. That's why I always buy it online and not from mobile stores. (its like 200€ cheaper that way). However I have absolutely no money at this moment...

I'd never buy an iPad or an iPad mini though. Main reason is, of course, portability. I have a computer for my gaming needs when I'm at home. And the phone for the road and home too. Don't get me wrong though... If I had money I'd buy both: iPhone and iPad (also a better PC).

Its not 199$, its 649$ because otherwise you pay for a monthly contract. Also its 2149TL = 1193$ in my country compared to yours
