That's brilliant, if BBC iplayer is working directly from the market then I'm updating right now! :P

How's the quality of the video stream, I'm hoping for an improvment!

It is downloading now, since it is compatible, I can only assume it will work, be back soon with confirmation....

Yep works fine, don't have a clue how to play it lol, but it loads up and works.

Oh ok think I see the aim of the game, to touch the circles when the line is in centre, yeah works fine, no lags etc.

Google Play still says it's incompatible with my device, how did you get it to install?

Indeed I did (World Of Goo + Swords & Soldiers from the Humble Bundle are working, as well as Dead Space which used to crash after downloading the data file)
I can see Temple Run: Brave (but I'm pretty sure that was always there, Disney apps were working on Gingerbread too).
Also, I cannot download Asphalt 6 either... :(

Does it take time for Google Play to 'register' I am running ICS or something (I don't think it's a regional thing since I had it on my old Nexus S, plus it seems odd that they will deny me access to my already purchased items).

Well, I just installed Chrome fine, so Play definitely knows I have ICS running (as it is not possible to download Chrome from Google Play using Gingerbread as far as I know).

Is the original (free) Temple Run available to the rest of you directly from Google Play?

Yes, Temple Run: Brave was always available. I downloaded it on my GB equipped SD. That said I wouldn't recommend it to anyone.
