Gameloft iPhone games
Gameloft, currently one of the major publishers of games for the iPod classic, nano and 5G, has announced its intentions to both develop and publish for the iPhone platform. The news follows Apple's preview of the App Store and SDK, and announcements from other game companies, including Sega and Electronic Arts as well as Freeverse. Development teams at Gameloft are already said to be at work on some 15 titles, taking advantage of features such as the touchscreen, accelerometer and 3D processor.
Because the games will come through the App Store, Gameloft notes that they will be the first from the company to be available directly through EDGE or Wi-Fi. At present, iPod games must be downloaded through iTunes, and then synched via USB. No prices or release dates have been mentioned for any particular Gameloft title.
