Real Racing 2 arrives on Android

Real Racing 2 arrives on Android
When it comes to apps and especially games, the App Store is still the best place to go. But all those Android fans looking for one of the best racing games on a mobile device, can now rush to the Android Market because EA has finally released Real Racing 2 on Android. The game has only been on Android’s app catalog for a couple of days, but has already managed to register huge interest.

While currently, Real Racing 2 is discounted to only a dollar on the App Store, on Android you get it for free. But there’s a catch - EA is testing its freemium model with this title so you’d only be able to play it for a while until the trial runs out and then you can only continue playing after an in-app purchase.

The requirements for Real Racing 2 on Android are pretty soft: you only need Android 2.1 Eclair, but of course a contemporary chip will make those frames run smoother. The game itself is a pretty heavy download - at around 600MB you’d better be connected to a Wi-Fi network or you can get charged heavily in the worst case and even in the best case you’d still have to wait for a long time for the download to finish.

Check out the video of the game to make up your mind and the link below will lead you straight to the market, so enjoy!

the line really was unneeded. What point was it in the article.. other than to incite a flame war for it. Of course, that was probably the exact point, lol :)

The Android Market doesn't have the same great apps as the App Store, but if you want a taste of what the App Store has to offer, go to the Android market and download real racer. You guys see what I did there? I call it an introduction. Real Racer is an extremely popular and well welcomed game on iOS. Now its part of Android's portfolio. There is no flamewar anywhere on this page because we all know its true. You guys should be happy about this addition (whether your plan to download or not) and not be hung up on the very first line of the entire article.

The game was first on App Store so it's normal something about Apple will be mentioned here. And what victor said it's true. Just accept it.

Now now more people's are talking bout android divices . Of course some of em are really cool and beautiful. But get a little while stop and think caused of what these all android devices are making???? These all are happening now only. Not earlier,, actually android Is a damn stolen product. If no apple then there is no smart phones, apple phone it's never gonna old , it's getting new in day by day caused of apps store. So how we can compare even android market with apps store?? And plz don't try to make s**t on what mr. Steve found to the world. It's amazing.. And I'm pretty sure that they will make more amazing things to us. So b patient and wait, cz best things needs more time than making more copyz(common) :) :) lOvE aPpLe iPhOnE ...

Ok, for a supposedly pure Google phone, the Nexus has things blocked by Verizon like Google Wallet and now this game. Does anyone have a good link for Real Racing's apk?

I't looks nice but it's not xperia play optimized. I'll stick with Asphalt 6.
