Mame isn't stealing. It's preserving a technological art form for posterity. Most of these games would've died out otherwise.

First of all, you're using that argument in a thread about a game, available on Mame, that someone is now porting to iOS (and is already available for sale from an original console publisher)? Seriously?

Second, while I wasn't intending to get into this discussion, you seem to want to have it so okay. If you don't own the original ROMs, it is stealing, plain and simple. Even if you own them, it's a grey area. It is also preserving technological art. Personally I have no real problem with it, and I may or may not use Mame myself

I've purchased raiden in various incarnations for various platforms, including raiden4 and the upcoming iOS games on xbox360. I bought raiden on the genesis. Don't give me this bs about Mame. I don't sell roms and I don't exploit Mame to make a buck. Everything is in the public domain and freely available. Its different than pirate games for current systems. The publishers know Mame roms keep their products in view of their fans, who like me, will purchase newer versions.

I also plan on buying both the iOS and android versions once they come out.

Finally !

Dec 4th !

(As for MAME i love MAME, think emulators have actually made companies a lot of money as they then started re-releasing back catalogues of games when they realised emulators/old games were so popular once again. I have my own 'rule', i'll use MAME without feeling guilty, the second a games released on iOS (even if i have it on MAME) i'll buy it to support the dev 100%).

Raiden was a classic arcade game, this app looks great as i think it features several of the versions (eg the sequel) all in one app. Dotemu license many old classic games so its good to be able to buy this game legally and on iOS. Should support devs like this.

MAME is a big grey area with arguments on both sides supporting and not supporting it. I did type out a long message but its probably best left alone.

Either way support this game when its out, its a classic shooter

All right! I love the Raiden series.

The tall iPhone 5 will be a good fit too.

Looking forward to seeing and buying this for sure!!! Please have a lot of control options, and I am sure I will love this for sure! And why not an early adopter sale!

Always wanted these games on my new ipad. Coolness.
