Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic now available on iPad for $9.99

Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic now available on iPad for $9.99
It seems that a pretty easy shortcut for game developers is to port over a 10 year old game to a mobile platform and charge $9.99 for it. We've seen Rockstar do it with Grand Theft Auto III as well as GTA Vice City (with San Andreas expected next year). Now Bioware wants in on the fun with Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic.

Bioware handed over the porting job to Aspyr Media, and the early reports say that Aspyr has done a quality job in bringing over the popular PC game from 2003. Star Wars: KotoR is still a favorite of the Star Wars games, and there's no reason to believe it wouldn't still stand up today. 

The game is available now in the iTunes App Store, and requires an iPad 2 or higher with iOS 6+. It also requires 2.5GB of free space, so keep an eye on that. It is not available for iPhone, and there's no word on bringing the port to Android either.

Of course it's coming to Android. Bioware wants to make money & there are LOTS of people playing games on Android. Duh!!! Man I can't wait until that comes out on Android. That was one of the games on the original Xbox I didn't get to play! That is so darn cool!!!!!

You never know until you try it. One thing about RPG's is that they are made to play EXTREMELY well on touch screens. It's not like you need all the precise controls of a game pad like you do for say a Madden, FIFA or a NBA Live. If you like StarWars you will definitely like this game.
