The new leader in gaming entertainment?

1 min read


Recently I have been seeing quite a lot of iPhone and iPod Touch gaming adverts on the TV and was starting to think that maybe Apple entered the console race without many of us noticing.

Well they have just announced that they have sold an incredible 30 million iPod Touch and iPhones which leapfrogs them straight past the Xbox 360 and places them firmly as a real contender in the gaming market.

I personally have never been an Apple fan but I have to say I am severely tempted to pick up an iPhone now that it has started to become a real alternative to mobile gaming with over 6000 games available in the marketplace and more hitting it every single day.

    I’m sorry but the comparison between the iPod/iPhone and the Xbox 360 is a very silly one. Let’s face it – people but the iPod and iPhone for music/as a phone, not for gaming. A small percentage of the userbase will play games on their hardware. The 360 is a gaming console and people buy it to play games on it.

    It’s like comparing Nokia phone sales to Xbox sales. It’s a pointless comparison.

  • Dude,in that case.go read the N4G Article on LG.i was going to pick up the iphone,not anymore.Their releasing an Iphone 3,0 with an LG OLED screw Apple,you just cant update a phone every year,putting substandard 2Mp cameras and no video record just so you plan future updates.its a the time the camera phone standard was becoming 3,8mp to 5mp

    I’ve got an iphone and must say that most of the games so far have been disappointing – very gimmicky and simple. However, there are a couple of real gems out there: Hero of Sparta (God of War rip-off), Fieldrunners (strategy), Sway (platformer that looks a bit like LittleBigPlanet)
