Play games with the iPhone

I was surprised at how powerful the iPhone could be for gaming. Is it July 11 yet?

The iPhone offers the most screen real estate and arguably the fastest processor of the lot. But while Apple’s device is dramatically more powerful than the DS for both graphics and number crunching, the PSP’s graphics engine has substantially more polygon pushing power than the iPhone’s MBX Lite–VGP or no. And while outclassed in this area of the PSP’s particular strength, we look to the iPhone’s unique combination of Wii (accelerometer) and DS (touchscreen) controls along with the unprecedentedly approachable App Store to make it every bit as significant a mobile games platform as Sony’s offering, moving forward.
