Texas Hold'em re-released

Apple today re-released its Texas Hold'em mini game to provide compatibility with the company's new third-generation iPod nano and revised iPod classic portable players. The game, which features seven tournaments starting from a modest $1,000 pot spanning through $2 million in potential winnings, features progressively difficult computer-controlled opponents who may or may not telegraph information about their hands. Players must learn to read each opponent's body language for signs of bluffing, and the game tracks a variety of statistics like the largest pots won and lost as well as the longest winning and losing streaks.

The $5 title includes an in-depth tutorial that explains the Texas Hold'em poker variant for players who don't know the rules, and allows users to pause the game at any time or display all of the possible hands in poker in descending order. Apple is offering Texas Hold'em via its iTunes Store, requiring Mac OS X 10.3.9 or Microsoft Windows 2000 or later to play.

    Nice crop job

    Whoever cropped the screen shot for the front page needs to get out not so much more, as a little bit at all.

    upgrade price?

    Do those people who've got an older iPod and the game get it for free or an upgrade price? Or are they stuck having to buy all new games because they bought a new device?

    Wow! $5 bucks...

    Jeez. Apple is hardly gonna give anyone an upgrade for half-price. Five measly bucks ain't gonna break nobody except the homeless guy on the street. Next time I go see a movie for $15 bucks and I don't like it, I'm asking for my money back. Well, at least give me half of my money back. Five whole bucks... Gotta get my lawyer on the phone. Time for a class action lawsuit. Haha.
