iPhone mother company, Apple, along with John Carmack of id Software has announced they are going to be working more closely for future games to be featured on both the iPad and the phone.
After launching the Rage video game on August 12, Carmack has stated that this is only the beginning. As of yesterday, the game runs at 60 frames per second on the iPhone 4, and it has completely overwhelmed the performance level when compared to the Microsoft Xbox and the PlayStation 2 of Sony.
Two years ago Carmack had said that Apple’s iPhone was “more powerful than a Nintendo DS and PSP combined,” and had promised to make the game available in the future. The future has arrived and the game is now in place, and just like he has made true on his promise that he would “kill anything done on the Xbox or PlayStation 2.”
The beauty of this incredible piece of equipment is that it is capable of doing what it had promised to do when it was first launched and it has made its customer base wider because of this fulfilment. With the ease of making applications readily available by the tap of a finger, the graphics capabilities are very impressive, making computer games and apparatus a need rather than a luxury. No one needs to purchase other equipment just to be able to play.
There will be more applications and more games that can be accessed in the future. With id Software preferring the support systems of this phone, it won’t be soon enough to wait out what is next in the offing.
The question that is left unanswered is when will Apple get to finally join the stereoscopic 3D area when presently, the iPhone 4 has gyroscopic six axis motion control.
