Well granted the ipod touch 4 isnt that old (No way just a year, i had my ipod touch 4 for nearly two years) but thats the way it is with Apple, every year or so there'll be a new version.

I had a lot of issues on my ipod touch 4 with games crashing constantly, having to reset my device, the ipod touch 5 has been great. But yeah its frustrating having to keep upgrading.

Well yeah, but I don't like the idea to upgrade to something that's not the latest device, if you upgrade to iPhone 5 or iPad 4 you get the finest hardware out there, if you upgrade to the iPod touch 5, which we waited for 2 years for btw, you get an iPad 2, when the iPod touch 4 came out it was the same hardware than the iPhone 4 except for the RAM, it's just bs.

Waiting for: ZOMBOX!!!Forgotten Memories, Diesel Tactics, The Wild.

I've had my iPod 4g for about 2 years and 4 month. In apples world you have to upgrade every two years to keep up, it sucks but its true

Yea sorry guys,

I was under the impression a while ago that the iPod Touch 4 was essentially identical to the iPhone 4 in terms of hardware, so I assumed Zombox could support it.

Unfortunately I learned recently that the iPod Touch 4 only has half the RAM of the iPhone 4, so unless I can literally cut the ram requirements for Zombox in half....I won't be able to support the older 256mb RAM devices.

No iPod 4 support means I'm out

Look, the iPod Touch series is MEANT to be less power full then a much more expensive iPhone or iPad. It's the affordable apple product. So you should be surprised your iPod touch 4 isn't supported, the device can barely handle its OS without lag, slow downs or crashing....

That's pretty much the reason I had to upgrade to the new iPad, as I've still got my iPod touch 4G but the amount of games that don't support it these days is crazy, mine struggles to even load the web never mind new games.
Something like fish out of water is all laggy and that's a pretty basic game.

Well anyway this is looking cool, can't wait.
