Aww I guess a single core Snapdragon processor at 1.5gHz won't be enough? :(

I don't know the specs on all the devices, but it looks like dual core processors only for this game.

It may have the controls for games...but it doesn't have good hardware inside.

I wonder why it won't work on my phone...I have better or equal hardware to the Droid X2 in every way...I guess I'll have to sideload this one.

interesting, something new to look forward to ! now bring on the Street Fighter games, King of Fighters, Metal Gears from Iphones!


Being nice always has its own consequences

Had the same question myself, the Sensation's specs are on par with everything else up there.

You know it probably would work on yours especially if it jail-broken. Rock-star just won't support it.

Too bad iPod Touch 4G isn't supported...

If they force me to sideload, then I can't pay for it, so I won't mind a lack of support.
