iPhone gaming is iBroken

Apple's never fully supported gaming on the iPhone, but one small addition to the iPhone 5 could make it a true gaming platform.

The story is too old to be commented.

They didn't set out to create a gaming device, but the idea that they don't support gaming is ludicrous. Estimates are that the percentage of games in the app store is between 30 and 60%. It's not Apple's job to appease gamers and change their device to suit them; it's the developers job to create games that work well inside the existing technology.

Yeah, I think I agree.

And would *a button* really turn the iPhone into a dedicated game system anyway? My Droid 2 has more buttons than an iPhone, but it still really only plays the same games an iPhone does.

Still, it is interesting to think about. You never know what Apple will do next...until they leave it in a bar somewhere.

I'd say that it isn't iBroken! Look at how much gaming is taking place! Lots of money being made and to be made!

Adding a button would certainly make iPhone gaming more like old school portable games, but I don't think that's a good thing.

You mean there are other games besides Angry Birds?

What? Gaming on iOS devices is not broken, especially because people play games on their iPods/iPhones/iPads more than doing any other activity!
