    Can anyone say why we can't have access to games with gyroscope on the iPad 1??

    The iPad1 does not have a gyroscope, so the developers probably won't sell you the game and thus make you disappointed.

    Yep our iPad 1 only has a basic accellometer. But some gyro enabled games like nova2 can still be bought and played because they use the accellometer feature the gyro scenes are slightly harder (eg steering vehicles) Online is frustrating tho with iPad 2 players much faster in turning etc. Personally I like Apple protecting me from buying games that won't work. Nice touch Not all games make their specs transparent.
