Everything is bigger in the US, so it’s only fair that the super sized iPad was released there first. Sales figures are now in – 300,000 units were sold during its weekend launch, which is way short of the 700,000 predicted by analysts, but still an impressive amount.
Apple has revealed that on launch day 1 million apps were downloaded, along with 250,000 e-books. Thatâ€™s nearly three apps per iPad owner.
Notable launch games for the system included Need for Speed Shift, Metal Gear Solid Touch, Mirror’s Edge, Command & Conquer Red Alert, Plants vs. Zombies HD, Sam & Max Episode 1, Tetris and Worms.
Every new format has to have Tetris and Worms released on it. Itâ€™s the law.
