NowGamer: Apple is reportedly set to cut down orders of iPhone 4, hinting that a reveal for the next model iPhone could be announced soon...
Not really E3 though if it was going to be released.
It'll be announced, not released - E3's on at the same time though, right?
Don't they generally release VERY close to announcement? Apple isn't a big fan of lagging sales from people holding off, and rightfully so.
is this news sponsored or something?
I think CES would be a better place for this announcement... BTW, why the hell are we going on iPhone 5 already. Apple is too damn expensive to keep up with.
apple has there own show june 6-10th, why would they announce it at E3. Its not coming out until fall.
Why the hell would Apple announce an Apple product at E3, and not their own press conference?
WWDC's on 6th of June. Apple annoyingly put it at the same time as E3.
Not only that but Apple seems to be pushing Mobile gaming with the ipad. Perhaps Iphone5 will be geared towards high end mobile gaming which would make it related to E3 right?
I declare the author officially dumb. Apple has its own press conference in june unveiling their new iphones every year. Close thread//
Isn't E3 a video game conference? Since when is an iPhone a gaming device? I know it can be used as such but I don't think Apple has said they're trying to compete with the PSP and Nintendo DS in the gaming market
Yeah, but the iPhone is sort of competition for handheld gaming devices like the 3DS and PSP2, indirectly at least. I don't care though because I'm gonna be buying a PSP2 so I can play REAL games, not crappy cell phone games (though admittedly cell phone games are getting a little better).
iphone is competition like tv is competition. Anything that takes away from doing something else. Indirect competitors E3 is for game companies Apple isnt one and they wont be at E3 They have there own event which is scheduled during the same week as E3 but its a 1 day thing. E3 is a week long thing. TGS is a week long thing. Not even close
Read other peoples comments dude. Apple have their own press conference on when E3 is. So yeah the Authur kinda stuffed up aswell, these things happen we are all human, except iphone users. Hahaha. @blumatt the iphone is not competition to gaming devices. Its competition to other mobiles.
When E.A, Squeare Enix, Activision, Rockstar and Epic started making games for it.
And, why, is this in the game setion?
Slow day in regards to news stories?! Maybe everyone has done a psn down and up article now and how the freebies fail. I dunno something like that. Im sure katoku will come up with some more eye burning reading soon.
Apple wont be at E3 because they arent a game company. Nobody gives a shit about apple at E3. http://www.vg247.com/2011/0... Apples event is the same week as E3 but apple wont be at E3. They have there own look at me look at me event. Its actually a really shitty move by apple because any other week people might care. But the weeks of E3 and tgs are for the gamers. And besides apples thing is a 1 day event. E3 and tgs are a week long.......... It wont really interfere
This year, Apple are releasing more in the way of software, notably Final Cut Pro X. It makes no difference to E3, because professional editing software and games have nothing to do with each other. So I don't see how it's a "shitty move". And there's not likely to be anything relating to the iPhone 5 as Apple have already said that they are focusing solely on software at this years conference.
How is this related to gaming? It's too expensive to buy it for only gaming.
It's smart by Apple to do it in the same week, since it would completely steel the show.
its a stupid move. Its made it irrelevant.
CODphone Edit: I would look into Droid before rushing to buy anything personally. Hopefully they aren't going to be at E3, the show is casual enough already.
Nah I will just wait for Iphone 6.It has a slightly brighter screen.
Android > Iphone iphone is for faggots.
If Apple announces the new iPhone at their conference, its actually great timing because my iphone contract runs out this Novemember, which would coincide with the 2nd or 3rd shipments of the phone. I originally was going to go for the 4, but I will definitely pick this baby up
To embarrass themselves. LOL "We present the new IPhone 5. It is really cool because this time we went back to a curved design but it is 0.00001mm thinner this time!" :D Sony Conference "Behold the NGP. Oohs and Aahs" Nintendo Conference "Behold our mighty Wii 2 with [insert innovative Nintendo type idea]" MS Conference ".....*pulls Halo 4 out of his back pocket*" Crowd: Massive cheers because maybe this year won't be totally about Kinect and Gears 3 Anyway, the point of this is that Apple will embarrass themselves.
They'll be at their own press conference while doing so, filled with Apple fanboys, who've reached a level of fanboy-ism on a mass scale that only the very fringes of our gamer society have yet stooped to. A new iPhone is front page news, a new Halo and the NGP are somewhere closer to the funnys (possibly the lifestyle section or little inset magazine).
Apple embarrasses themselves by having shovelware are there marquee games.
Since when are these considered shovelware...
iPhone will only be announced at Apple events lol they won't use something like E3 to degrade their product value.
apple is a joke. They dont appeal to gamers , they appeal to people with weak minds who buy ANYTHING if it looks cool . How much of a failure would Sony be releasing a PS9 right now? Yeah..
Tell that to the Broadcasting industry. Apple is a big company and the iPhone is far from being their only product. Besides, Apple aren't the stupid ones. The stupid people are the ones who buy every new version of a product (as you rightly pointed out). But then again, the gaming industry had CoD, so nobody's faultless.
And the gamers will not care lol. I recently got a Windows Phone, Samsung Omnia 7 which imo is infinitely nicer than any iPhone Apple can shove in my face OS wise and hardware wise. Unfortunately for them, only the main stream press will care. Not those of us who are anxious to hear more about Project Cafe and NGP.
Good luck apple with all the things happening at E3 who is really going to be interested in a phone that gets release yearly
