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.

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 no secret that Sonic zealots have been split firmly down the middle for the last 15 years or so. While almost all of them recognize the Sega mascot’s original four Genesis releases as bona fide classics, that’s where all too many are willing to draw the line. (more…)
Developer reception to last week’s official iPad unveiling continues to flood in, almost all offering a positive take on Apple’s new device.
