    Teaser Site Reveals Splinter Cell is iPhone Bound

    We’re not too ashamed to admit that we would never have cracked this code. Thanks to the skill of someone more astute than us, however, it would appear that Ubisoft has all but confirmed that Splinter Cell is in development for the iPhone. (more…)

      Nintendo Remains Dismissive of iPhone Threat

      You have to wonder whether those at Apple are annoyed or amused at Nintendo’s continued insistence that the giant represents no threat to its gaming business.

              iPhone Takes Third Place in Smartphone Race

              Though Windows Mobile is effectively dead (Windows Phone set to be the chosen moniker when the flashy-looking Series 7 OS launches later this year), that won’t stop those at Apple celebrating the news that iPhone sales sailed past those of Microsoft’s mobile division last year, moving iPhone into third place in the global smartphone race in the process.

                Foursquare Fuels Privacy Debate

                  OnLive Demos Crysis on iPhone, iPad Games Likely

                  Those of you with long memories might remember the folks behind OnLive, the “cloud gaming” service designed to allow users to play big, bulky games streamed over the internet, making a big fuss about a possible iPhone version back in November. Now, with the iPad nearly upon us, it would appear that they’re even more confident that their yet-to-launch but much-hyped service can make the transition. (more…)

                    Apple Increases 3G Download Cap to 20 MB

                    Just recently it was revealed that Apple has silently increased the download limit over 3G internet connections from 10 MB to 20 MB. Previous restrictions required applications larger than 10 MB to be downloaded over a Wi-Fi connection.

                      Microsoft Takes a Swipe at the iPhone

                      As one of the smartphone leaders, the iPhone is a natural target for any mobile manufacturers looking to unseat Apple. In a week where RIM founder Mike Lazaridis has already claimed BlackBerry phones have an advantage over iPhone because of their lack of data-intensive apps, Microsoft has taken a similar swipe at Apple, claiming Windows Phone 7 handsets won’t be flooded with “6,000 different arcade puzzle games”.

                      All-In-1 Gamebox Review

                      We’re all used to seeing “value packs” pop up for old formats, whether it’s in the form of a mini-console that sits under your TV or all-in-one discs that transform your Xbox 360 into a Genesis for a few hours. Having one turn up on iPhone, however, could be a little disconcerting. Is it all over already? Has our favorite gaming haven already become a relic? (more…)

                        Gameloft and Ubisoft in Sibling Rivalry Over iPhone

                        You can’t beat a good bit of sibling rivalry, though it has to be said, the relationship between mobile developers Gameloft and its partner publisher Ubisoft appears to have heated up beyond the norm lately. (more…)

                            While Ubisoft seems to be stalling its iPhone development, one publisher that’s determined to throw its weight behind the App Store is Disney Interactive, the house that Mickey built.

                              Ubisoft: iPhone Not as Profitable as Other Formats

                              There’s something slightly confusing about French publisher Ubisoft’s attitude to iPhone gaming. The company has recently announced heavyweight franchises for the App Store, with Silent Hunter, Assassin’s Creed 2 Multiplayer, and Anno Dawn of Discovery all adding to Ubisoft’s iPhone output. But they also say it’s not as profitable of a platform. (more…)

                                Survey: iPhone Development On The Rise

                                Developer momentum behind iPhone looks set to continue this year, with news that support is on the rise further backing up claims that the format is set for a Wii-beating 2010. This optimism is fueled by the results of a survey carried out by Gamasutra’s sister service Game Developer Research. The site recently questioned more than 800 videogame professionals in an effort to predict just which platforms are on the up and which are due for a slump. (more…)

                                    It’s an age old response in this industry: when someone launches a new product that threatens your existing lineup, claim that, somehow, their new device will actually help boost the sales of your own. (more…)

Indeed, one constant theme in the multitude of responses seems to be that, rather than taking on the role of iPhone successor, most believe the iPad will actually complement Apple’s current line-up.
