OS 3.0 compatibility

Are the current big-name games compatible with OS 3.0? What I mean by big-name games here are games like Assassin's Creed, Need For Speed, The Sims, Sonic, Cooking Mama, etc.

The developers seem to never update them, so if they aren't OS 3.0 compatible, would we not be able to play them anymore?

Four most influential games: Papi Jump, iDracula, Fieldrunners, Flight Control.

every current game will all play with 3.0 no problem. now if they're taking benefit and get optimized for it is another story.

Every game is being tested under 3.0 (past games included) any game that doesn't work under it will be REMOVED from the appstore until they patch it to work.

So far I have yet to come across a game that completely failed but if it happened the dev would be forced to patch it if they plan on making any more money.

I got a 3.0 compatability update for Assassins Creed today. The only app that I have had a problem with since loading 3.0 GM is AppSniper which will not load but it was buggy before so no great lose.

So this could be why Edge was removed! I never thought about it this way!

I don't have AC, but WWG also got a 3.0 compatibility update today. Can anyone else with Gameloft games tell me if their games have all been updated? I have Ferrari GT, HoS lite and Terminator Salvation lite but they don't seem to have 3.0 update.

AppSniper has always been buggy. It's a useful app but very inconvenient to use as everytime I scroll too fast it 99% crashes.

Ok how do we know that apps are 3.0 compatible?

Some apps like the sims 3
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=317911945&mt=8

have "(OS 3.0 tested)" next to their version number

But others like Assassins creed
http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=313367811&mt=8

say they got an update with 3.0 compatibility but it doesn't say next to the version number "3.0 compatible" SO I don't know which apps are 3.0 compatible.

i have looked around but havent seen any info apart from it supposedly releasing on 17th of this month-- but since you guys are talking about 3.0, is it released? or is it just for the iphone peoples not touch peoples yet?

nvm, no sleep-- guessing you guys are beta testing via redsox's sig.
