Apple may be planning a games development push.

A Gamespot report claims the company is developing an iPod that's more capable of playing better games, and that it has been stealthily hiring in games development experience to help it achieve this.

The report claims that an Apple hiring manager called Mike Lampell is running a games group somewhere within the company's iTunes division. It's apparently a "super-secret" project, and little is known about the project's aims.

Apple has made no official comment on the rumours, which Gamespot itself describes as potentially incorrect.
