EA Confirms Spore for iPhone

Without question, we weren't the only ones wondering whether the demontration of EA's highly anticipated game Spore running on an Apple iPhone at today's iPhone Software Roadmap event was an indication of an eventual release of an iPhone version of spore - or just a whipped up demo version to produce a "wow" factor at today's event. As it turns out, EA has confirmed that they will indeed be releasing a version of the game for the iPhone.

EA is one of the largest game developers for Apple's iPod. According to statements released after today's Apple event by EA, they have been actively using the iPhone SDK to develop versions of not only Spore, but other popular

EA titles, for the iPhone.

The iPhone offers impressive technology for game developers, according to EA, such as optimized animation and OpenGL support. Said EA's CEO John Riccitiello, "The animation technology in the iPhone OS enables us to build awesome games. I think iPhone consumers are going to be blown away by the games we create for this platform."

EA plans to release the iPhone version of Spore when the game is launched later this year.

I'm impressed, I have to admit. Rarely do I come across a blog that's both
equally educative and interesting, and let me tell you, you've
hit the nail on the head. The issue is something that too few men and women are speaking intelligently about.
I'm very happy I stumbled across this in my hunt for something regarding this.
