Terminator: Salvation set to redefine iPhone gaming
Sat, 02 May 2009
A video of the upcoming Termintaor: Salvation game for iPhone shows just how far the iPhone is coming along as a games machine. The graphics are remarkable; almost at the same level as current Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles; and the game seems to run smoothly. It could easily be running on a PSP.
There's little indication of how the controls work, which seems to be the iPhone's achilles heel for traditional shooting games, like this. But there's plenty of varied game modes and and explosions all over the place.
The video is allegedly leaked (which means it was probably put up intentionally by the PR department).
So this begs the question. Is Apple quietly taking over the handheld gaming market?

"...almost at the same level as current Xbox 360 and PS3 consoles; and the game seems to run smoothly. It could easily be running on a PSP".
I know it's your opinion, but this is nowhere close to being on the same level as XBox360/PS3. Perhaps on par with PSOne. The lack of a controller for a game like this is a real drawback as no software solutions come close to giving satisfying control.
