Apple revealed the latest iteration of their niche, hard-to-use, confusing and unpopular smartphone in San Francisco today, and there are a few takeaways for the small and elite handful of computer hackers that will use the iPhone 5 to play games:
1. A bigger screen means games will appear bigger.
2. A processor upgrade means double the speed of the CPU, according to Apple, resulting in twice-as-fast graphics.
A VP from EA, on stage at the presentation, said the iPhone will boast “full console quality” graphics, although he failed to mention which console. In therefore potentially related news, the Neo Geo X handheld, which recreates the 90s arcade machine, will be out in December.
