Fuzzy Game Icons on App Store

Is anybody else seeing pretty fuzzy icons for games on iTunes? I just went to buy Jetpack Joyride and the icon looked really blurry. BUT, when I searched it on the iPod App Store, it looked just fine.

I see it too. Maybe some Apple is updating the store or something.

I don't see it. Is it in the iDevice AppStore? Or is it on your computer iTunes?

Are you talking about icons that look pixelated and crappy on the retina display?

If that's the case, it's not Apple, it's the lazy developers that dont do the very simple resolution update

I wish Apple could just update them, because it appears that when you search the app store for games on the retina display, they all look amazing. That proves that there high res icons in existence for every game.

Very, very little work for an update on the developers part, especially if they already exist.


BTW, Jetpacks icon is gorgeous, very crisp. On the app store, it looks slightly washed out, which is odd.
