32-bit Apocalypse begins

At this point, despite investing a lot of money into iOS apps, i am seriously switching into android where past purchases are still mostly retrievable, and useable from what ive seen.

Im still on iphone 4s coz im mainly gaming on the ipad air 2, ive been planning to get an ip7 this december, but now im leaning towards skipping the idea and getting an android phone instead.

I've noticed as of yesterday that if you search for ANY game that you know are 32-bit, they will not show up on the App Store. Not sure how long this has been in place. Seems the only way around this is if you've had certain games on your wishlist or maybe you can even get some in your purchased history, but it's coming very soon!

That's the only way Apple will listen and maybe smarten up. Hit their bottom line.

Of the games I have Lunar Silver Star Story Touch and FFTactics:WOTL are affected and will most likely die soon.Hope that more games won't come,because it make me want to abandon ios gaming and go back to consoles,handelds and PC.Apple really seem to hate us gamers.
