Where are all the big 3.0 titles?

I was expecting to see at least one or two big titles to come out after 3.0, so far nothing yet, or did I miss something? Any news on what's been approved and so on ? Was hoping to see worms for example...

I really want team17 to give up some info on worms as well! Although i'm a bit scared to find out how much they'll charge for it.

its not worth the effort for devs right now to make games that harness the power of the 3g s YET bc the user base is a fraction of what the standard 3g is. if youre going to make 3gs specific features, keep in mind that you are alienating ALL the other iphone users... which means realistically youd have to release TWO separate versions of each game (regular version and enhanced, 3gs specific version), which can get a bit confusing for consumers.

I haven't heard a developer tell me that they were "waiting for 3.0 to come out" before they released their title. Infact, most if not all developers are sticking to their own planned schedules for release and I can easily tell you those dates..

When its done.

I don't think 3.0 has been much of a factor when planning and development. I think some of the more anticipated titles, simply aren't ready yet.

He's not talking about the 3G S, he's talking about iPhone OS 3.0. Since 3.0 was announced months ago, developers have had more time to plan for its features. The 3G S was (theoretically) a surprise for everyone, so developers will need a lot more time to make use of its features.

And that's even if the developers want to make use of the extra features they bring.
