    looking through BlackBerry World on my new Z10, i don't see any of the games i already have on my playbook:

    angry birds 1-4
    plants vs zombies
    cut the rope
    jetpack joyride
    ashpalt 6
    shadowgun
    sonic 4

    etc

    are they there and just not showing up when searching for them directly, or are they actually not there?

    if they are not there, is there a timeline for when they will be available for the Z10 and i just didn't get the memo?

    thanks.

    i found my compatible playbook apps in the my work section, then went to the available tab. was able to download and install many of my purchased games.

    this is weird considering they actually made a big deal about porting over most of the playbook apps!
    maybe blackberry world is on the fritz

    really, eh.
    this should have been worked out long ago.
    they have a stellar roster of games ( and apps ) on the playbook, yet 90% of them are not available for the Z10 at launch.
    wtf.

    different screen resolution and OS mean game has to be repackaged by developers. RIM has improved w Devs, but not perfect.

    nah there was a huge drive a few months back where RIM specifically said they went through and ported the apps for the playbook

    I have been asking the same question. I can't understand why this was placed as an after though by Blackberry. They said playbook apps will be available at launch and if I'm correct, they were going to repackage it and the devs don't need to do anything.

    the only positive, is, i managed to find 1 of the games i purchased on my playbook ( doodle grub ) and i was allowed to install it onto my Z10 free.
    i hope the others are the same, as i have built an impressive library of games on my playbook.

    ( downside: it didn't keep my score. might have to eventually start angry birds and such from sctratch )

    well. have had the Z10 for 1 week now, and still no sign of my playbook games.
    i would really like to show off to people, that, the Z10 has all the coolest games.
    instead, when people ask, i have to say, "they're coming eventually"...lame response.

    just sideload the playbook version (if you're able to obtain the .bar file) . it should work fine in most cases

    on the bright side: Z10 has Riptide GP. thats new.
    so, now i have 2 games on my Z10 that are not on my playbook ( angry birds star wars ), and 18 games on my playbook that are not on my Z10.
    can't wait until they are all on both.
    not sure what the hold up is.

    Keep us updated. I've got a pretty large collection of playbook games too. I hope they start showing up for BB10 soon.

    Over 2 months since launch, and this is still a problem. Unbelievable

    What about installing games (like Asphalt 7 and UNO) from Z10 to playbook?
