Will Super Monkey Ball 2 be removed from the app store?

Im trying to decide if i should get Super Monkey Ball 2.
Everyother review on the game says it doesnt work on the 3gs.
I have a 3g ipod touch, so does anyone think the game might be pulled from the app store for it not working on some 3gs ipods?

It works fine on my 3Gs. It's likely that the people who are having problems all have jailbroken phones (in fact, a workaround has been thoroughly discussed in the main SMB2 thread). I doubt that Sega would pull a game that only fails on hacked devices.

Don't J/B your device and it will be fine. SEGA don't care about Hackers having problems so they won't pull it off

Hi,

I do not see this being pulled.

If it turns out the problems reported are happening with non jail broke devices, then it may.

There is an issue of Brothers In Arms that I heard that it does not run on jailbroke devices, still in the appstore.

Feels like the same situation here.

My thought, you want to play the game, restore your device and enjoy.

Or just deal with it.

Just because jail breaking gives one more control, there are tradeoffs.

This is one.

I am jail broke and if I decide to get this, I will restore my device and enjoy the game, not complain about how this is unfair for it to not work on jail broke devices.

This post covers the topic rought up by the OP but is not really directed towards them.

More directed to all those in the SMB2 thread complaining about this being unfair, to those, suck it up and stop complaining.

As I mentioned above, there is a workaround for jailbroken devices -- it works if you start up in safe mode.

Funny thing is, when I made pretty much the same point you've just made on the SMB2 thread, I got accused of being 1) and Apple shill out to scare people away from jailbreaking, 2) a boring hectoring schoolmarm, and 3) and anti-jailbreaking fanatic. Granted, all those accusations were made by the same person -- guess some people are a bit sensitive about the issue.
