As someone who's bought their first iPad (new iPad 64GB) but has been an iPhone gamer since the iPhone 3G, I am a little fed up having to buy a lot of games twice.

Real Racing 2, FIFA 12, and Plants vs Zombies disguised under the 'HD' moniker, for example.

Surely it's not hard for them to add an update to support the new HD within the existing iPhone app (like Infinity Blade 2)? Reading the app descriptions for the iPhone versions, they say they support the iPad (using the x2 mode) but it's a bit annoying having to pay for the same app twice to get 'full' iPad support.

Agreed, but only because developers with multiple code bases tend to favor one over the other. To see an example of this we need look no farther than this game, which received its Zen Garden update almost a year after the iPhone version.

The "buying" part would only be an issue for me if iOS games weren't so ridiculously cheap.

True, but take a look at the likes of Infinity Blade 2. It was updated for the new iPad as well as the ClashMobs feature. It's just one app, universal, and it runs a certain way depending on the SKU of iDevice running it. Real Racing 2 is the one that really bugs me, there's no reason for that not to be Universal on iOS, especially when the iPhone app is listed as compatible with the iPad also, albeit in x2 mode.

I grudge giving EA another 4.99 for a game I've already bought in full. In fact, most of the games with this issue are either Gameloft or EA ... sums them up.

You're definitely right about Gameloft and EA being the major perps here, so it's definitely a policy issue rather than a technical one.

The IAP isn't needed. I can't see why anyone would want to buy it - with Zen Garden, you'll be rolling in coins soon enough.

Default Iphone vs ipad

Yea I am a little sad this game isn't universal too. I bought the new ipad and I had this game on my phone, but I refuse to pay another $7 for the hd version. So I will wait for a sale, looks like it will go down to $3 at some point but do any of you think it will go on sale for $1 sometime?

So long from the Connector!

If it were just Popcap, I'd say no on the $1 sale, however, EA puts even their $10 titles that low sometimes so it's possible.
