Default Sonic 4 - Price and Retina display Complaining Station

The sequel fans have waited 16 years for is finally here - Sonic The Hedgehog™ 4 Episode I!

Featuring enhanced gameplay elements, including the classic Sonic Spin Dash, and the versatile Homing Attack, Sonic 4 picks up right where Sonic and Knuckles™ left off.
Two exclusive levels build specifically for the iPhone & iPod touch using the accelerometer.

All of Sonic's classic moves are available, including the newer Homing Attack which will add a new level of control and excitement.

Race through 4 unique zones containing 4 acts each as well as 7 special stages.

A staple of the Genesis-era games, the special stages return allowing fans to collect the 7 Chaos Emeralds and unlock Super Sonic.

Dr. Eggman returns with new and improved mechas and will go berserk when he accumulates damage.

GamePro - “…this looks and feels like a genuine Sonic game, deserving of the "4" attached to its title.”
IGN – “After an afternoon in its presence it's become seared in our conscience just like the classic levels of the early Sonics – and surely that's reason enough to have faith in Sonic the Hedgehog 4.”

Wow, yeah, I think that prise is a little steep considering this is episode 1 of how many? But, who doesn't love Sonic and hopefully the d-pad is much improved over the genesis ported controls

Well... it's $15USD on every other console, and it has everything those versions have AFAIK, plus two exclusive levels, so you do the math...

Urk! I want this so bad... I might actually pay the $10 for it. It's cheaper than it is on every other console it's coming out for too, I think I should add. On the Wii, PS3 and 360 it's gonna cost $15.

Although, I might just buy the WiiWare version and then wait for a sale on the iDevice one

OUCH...I was excited till I saw the price!
If it had retina support, I'd buy it.
I'll wait & see how the reviews are.

No Retina Display support, no sale.

This game has been in the making since early 2010, to not cater for the iPhone 4 and iPod touch 4th Gen is quite embarrassing on SEGA's part in my opinion.
