Starfront Collision HD......where are you?

Does anyone have any idea when gameloft is going to release this? RTS on ipad seems like a no brainer to me. I'm just looking for some info. I really want this on my ipad.......today lol

Two thoughts came to mind.

Gameloft are evil

They're just waiting til they've strained every last penny from iPhone gamers and possibly some iPad gamers who just couldn't wait


Gameloft aren't evil, they are smart


Perhaps they are holding off to see what this new iPad brings next week? If it has some slick new feature that Gameloft could quickly implement and then ride the wave of sales when the new iPad comes out, because it benefits from said, feature. It would also mean it isn't just an upscaled port, further enticing iPhone users with iPads to repurchase.

Well doesn't gameloft normally release the HD version a few weeks after the ipod touch release anyway? I think in part to cash in on the double dippers that buy both versions. I do find it ironic however because if I'm not mistaken this game was originally announced as an ipad game.

Me too! Me too!

I also played this on the itouch and I want more. I am not going to buy it twice just to get the same gameplay with better grafix on the iPad. So I am waiting for the HD release as well.

Apple's Event

I think they're holding onto it until Apple's iPad 2 announcement. Maybe they'll be part of the presentation. My guess is that it will be available in the store on that day.
