The iPhone 3GS will be able to run games based on Unreal Engine 3
Epic is the company behind games like Unreal and Gears of War and of course, the developer of Unreal Engine 3 that has brought to life a myriad of popular titles. We´ve got great news for all fans of mobile gaming, because Epic has showcased a technological demo of a title based on the very same graphics engine, but running on the iPhone 3GS and able to utilize OpenGL ES 2.0. Take a look at the video below and see for yourself - the game plays perfectly smoothly and looks pretty well indeed. The company also stated they would showcase another software project at CES 2010, apparently for games based on the same engine and designed for a different mobile platform, but we still don´t know anything about it.

There is more than enough time until Epic embarks on any licensing scheme for mobile game developers, but we believe that titles for the iPhone based on Unreal Engine 3 can give the Sony PSP and Nintendo DS a pretty good run for their money. We do hope to see relevant hardware controls soon as well, because virtually all iPhone gamers complain about that annoying problem of the phone screen getting hidden behind their fingers while playing.

I have to agree with *HOVA* on this one. As much as Verizon would like to think the Droid does everything they are just digging their worst smartphone selection deeper and deeper into a pit of crap selection for phones... I mean seriously, who says in their right mind, "Let's piss off the company that makes the best smartphone ever"? Ahh... I guess Verizon. Pretty stupid if you ask me.

I agree with you too. Can't the Droid just be a good phone without having to be king of the iPhone? And the Froid is just begging to be compared to the iPhone. I mean when they started saying all the thing that the DroidDoes, it's only natural for people to point out all the things that it doesn't.

I wasn't trying to be clever, I meant to write Droid and not Froid.

I am amazed at what the iphone can do. I cant wait to see what the future iphones will be able to do. And i dont see why verizon users constantly bash the iphone as im sure one day it will be on there flawless, and perfect network. Iphone is still the best device out there hands down.. Sorry fanboys.
