My son has the 8GB 4th Gen Touch and it works fine on it. Isn't that technically a 3rd gen ipodtouch?

...

I happily paid the $5 at launch... I'm not bothered at all by the sale. It's a great game for fans of the series.

Can't wait for Jet Set Radio ... I think it's out next week.

Does this game run well on an iPod touch 4g? Also, is it worth the $2.99?

Run fine on my 3GS so I'm sure it'll be fine on your 4G Touch. I don't regret getting it for the original $4.99. But it really depends on if you were a fan of the original. "Newbies" might find it floaty and outdated. It's meant to be floaty and it's a very good port of the original.

Hmm... Just looked at the App Store reviews and everyone says it crashes as soon as they tap the screen. Does disabaling Game Center fix the crashes?

It's still $4.99...

When will it be $2.99 in the U.S?

My son and I are both on GameCenter and the game loads fine for me. I just called him now and he said he played it last night on his 4th Gen iPodTouch 8GB (which I've read is basically a 3rd gen) and had no issues with it.

They did update the game not too long ago though so maybe they fixed whatever issue folks were having, though we never experienced issues with the game.

Also, if it's not marked down yet on the store then it's probably going to $2.99 at 10pm CST.

It doesn't work on iTouch 4g iOS 5.0.1. I upgrade to iOS 6.0.1 on the weekend, and I can run the game, and it is a definite recommendation

I should have mentioned also both myself and my son are on 6.0.1 ... I could check on my wife's iPhone4 which is on 5.something. The app itself lists 4.3 as the minimum.

Just checked and its now $2.99 in the U.S App Store.


EDIT: I Bought it and let it download then powered down all the apps and restarted the device. I started it up and it crashed when playing arcade mode. I then logged out of Game Center and played crazy box for a few minutes then when I tried original mode, it crashed again. I really hope they can fix this soon...
