TiPb TV Interview: Real Racing 2 tips from Firemint

Firemint's Real Racing 2 for iPhone just went live in the App Store. With 30 licensed cars, 15 person online multiplayer, career mode, and other console quality features it's another huge leap forward for iPhone gaming. But what if -- like me -- you don't drive especially well? What if you need a little inside help, some expert advice on how to beat the game? (And your friends!)

Worry not, Firemint Founder and CEO Rob Murray, Real Racing 2 Producer Chris Nicoll, and Firemint Communications Manager Alex Peters were kind enough to sit down for an interview with us and dish all their secrets. (Okay, maybe not all, but enough tips and tricks to give you an edge!)

This is just a taste mind you. The full interview will be included with our iPhone Live #130 podcast, available later today right here on the blog and via iTunes. Subscribe already!

[$9.99 - iTunes link]

Apple anticipates selling 6 million iPad 2 a month, doubles up on touch panel suppliers, still no 7-inch model [Rumor!]

Everyone's favorite rumor sheet, Digitimes is back with yet more iPad 2 rumors, this time saying Apple expects to sell 6 million units a month of the next generation tablet in 2011, and to meet those numbers is lining up Chimei Innolux and Cando to current touch-panel suppliers Wintek, Sintek Photronics and TPK Touch Solutions. What's more:

Despite market reports stating that Apple is also likely to launch a 7-inch iPad as well as new iPhones, sources in Apple's supply chain in Taiwan claimed that they have not heard anything about orders for 7-inch touch panels.

iTunes 10.1.1 causing install problems, crash bugs?

We've gotten emails, comments, even angry ALL CAPS shouts during iPhone Live's chat, that some users aren't able to install today's iTunes 10.1.1 update through Software Update, while others who are able to install can't launch it without it crashing.

For both bugs try going to apple.com/itunes and download the latest version directly.

If you're having any problems or issues with iTunes 10.1.1 let us know, along with any solutions that help you through.

Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light hitting App Store tomorrow!

Crystal Dynamic's Karl Stewart has confirmed that Lara Croft and the Guardians of Light will be hitting the North American App Store tomorrow for $6.99 (iPhone) and $9.99 (iPad). The game is said to be unchanged from the XBLA and PSN game that was released to critical acclaim earlier this year.

There will be a two-player co-op mode included over both WiFi and Bluetooth. For those familiar with the game and hoping that the DLC from the XBLA/PSN versions would make it to the iOS version, a Crystal Dynamics representative has confirmed that the DLC will not be included on the version being released tomorrow, however a future update has not been ruled out.

Check out more pictures and let us know what you think about this and all the other exciting games being released for iOS after the break!

Are next-generation games the next iPhone killer app?

Are next-generation games the next iPhone killer app?

One look at the games being released for this season and it's easy to think we're entering into the next great generation of iPhone (and iPad) gaming. Infinity Blade has brought Epic's Unreal 3 Engine to iOS in grand fashion, with spectacular, real-time environments, fun gameplay, and character models and motion that would have blown me away on a PS2, let alone a handheld device that also surfs the web and makes phone calls. In a day or so we'll also get Real Racing 2, sequel to Firemint's Apple Design Award Winning driver, complete with 30 licensed, gorgeously reproduced cars and highly anticipated multiplayer online gaming.

These are features that, until now, were reserved for PC and console games. They're premium titles, the kind that take the time and effort of small scale motion pictures to make. They're what's putting a hurt on Sony's PSP and Nintendo's DS business, never mind other smartphones. And they're on our iPhone, with more and more to come.

In a market where other platforms are now achieving 3rd party software parity with Apple -- they have enough of the kind of applications people want on their mobile devices that tens of thousands or hundreds of thousands are quantitative but no longer qualitative differentiators -- and raw hardware specs that equal and may soon eclipse iPhone 4, these kinds of games could be the iPhone's killer apps and Apple's next short term differentiator.
