Apple's never fully supported gaming on the iPhone, but one small addition to the iPhone 5 could make it a true gaming platform.
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?
yeah didn't you hear? read this article: http://www.techradar.com/ne...
What? Gaming on iOS devices is not broken, especially because people play games on their iPods/iPhones/iPads more than doing any other activity!
iSee what you did there.
iThink you're mistaken. Apple are trying to get rid of buttons and unnecessary hardware. This idea is against Apple's goals. They also didn't design a gaming device.
what was the point of this article?
iDon't know. Sorry, couldn't pass it up :P.
Never fully supported ? That's why the most apps that are downloaded are games. Also if you actually looked properly there are some great games on the device such as Cut The Rope, Game Dev Story and Sword and Sworcery.
The i phone would be better off as a smart phone than a gaming device.
The biggest revenue for the iphone and iPad are games...more so than any other app that Apple sells....
seems like someone is a ihater.
