Gameloft iPhone games
Gameloft may have unintentionally let slip about the first downloadable iPhone game during CEO Michel Guillemot's keynote at the GDC Mobile conference. According to UK-based Pocket Gamer, the device was seen in several slides during the keynote presentation, featuring what the publication thinks is a game based on Sega's NiGHTS, or alternately an enhanced version of Pop Superstar. While the news is unofficial, Gameloft is a likely choice as a launch partner for iPhone games, due to the company's success with games on the iPod.
Apple has not said when custom content for the iPhone and iPod touch will be available. Late last year, CEO Steve Jobs said the iPhone software developer's kit would be available February, and the v1.1.3 firmware is said to lay the groundwork for custom applications.
