iQuiz iPod Game Surfaces

Apple is bringing at least one new game to the iPod in the near future, say visitors to France's iTunes Store. Titled iQuiz, the internally developed Apple game briefly appeared but then disappeared from the French site and will expand on the basic Music Quiz program included with the fifth-generation iPod and the iPod nano. Its interface will be enhanced and the game itself will be the first to let players actively share information between each other through custom question lists, according to the description.

"Test your entertainment knowledge with iQuiz, a timed question-and-answer game for your iPod," it reads. "Test your knowledge of the songs, artists and albums present on your iPod and take on the challenges of questions about movies, music and television. Create your own personalized Trivia Packs and play those created by others."

Apple hasn't officially announced iQuiz but says it will require iTunes 7.1 or later, quashing the possibility that the game will be attached to a software update. Expectations are that the game will be made available worldwide.

    oooh, Wireless!

    Well... this game would certainly be enhanced with bult-in Wifi. I never really understood how the "Music quiz" was a feasable game. I mean, it's *your* Library, You know what songs are in it, it's no quiz if you know the answer! But if you could tap into others ipods to play the game? Wow.

    Wow, a rehash of an existing "game" is hardly a "wave". The only "wave" starting here is one of being "underwhelmed", expecially if Apple expects people to pay for this "game". And this is coming from someone who has paid for ALL of the other iPods games, 'til now.

    Finally the truth is out, so this is the real reason all of those Leopard engineers were redirected to the iPhone - the iPhone will be the most advanced music quiz box on the planet.

    Now really nobody expected that!
