Game updates?

Anyone know when the backlog of updates are coming out? Some games I'm waiting for updates on have been submitted over 20 days ago. I understand that 3.0 put the updates back by about a week but it's getting close to a month now for approval time ... seems a bit ridiculous. (I'm ranting here..)

I'm on the same boat, going through my longest approval ever.

Ps. This should get into developer forum.

Its because a lot of developers are submitting their apps because of 3.0.
They want their games to have 3.0 features.
Apple is getting overwhelmed by the so many games. A normal update on a normal week would take about 3-7 days. But almost 8/10 of the developers submitted their updates.
It should cool down in a 2 weeks to a month

Underworld's update just got accepted after like 2-3 weeks. Hopefully more will come throughout the day.
