Why is app store different on iPad and iTouch?

I like how my itouch breaks games down into categories, my iPad 2 does not, am I missing a update or something?

You're not missing an update. When the iPad first came out, there weren't enough iPad apps to justify category top lists. Apple's never bothered adding game subcategories, and at this point I doubt they ever will. On the plus side, search is easier to access on the iPad because of the bigger onscreen keyboard.

Ah ok, I like looking through the rpg lists and what not on the iPod touch for some random games I may not heard of. Just seems like you have to know what your looking or on the iPad to find it.
