So Just How Powerful is the iPhone?
As gaming developers grow more familiar with the iPhone platform and learning its capabilities, many are doling out their opinions across the interweb. Compared to the DS and the PSP, an EA developer put the iPhone in terms of power closer to the PSP than the DS. That's nothing new for us at TiPb but now Sega is claiming that the iPhone is more powerful than their last console, the Dreamcast! To remind you: the Dreamcast was home to Soul Caliber, Shenmue, & Virtua Tennis and the console was a competitor of the PS2 and Xbox.
And. the. iPhone. is. more. powerful. than. that.
But powerful as it is, as proven by the current console war, the iPhone is going to need FUN games to succeed as a gaming platform. Let's give developers some time to see what they can come up with. With such power under the hood, they'll have no excuse!
