Apple Announces iPhone 4S

It stands to reason that Apple is working on the iPhone 5, but today's rumor-from-the-internet narrows down the release window. According to KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo, quoted by MacRumors, the iPhone 5 will be released in September and the iPad mini will debut later in the month.

"iPhone 5 to debut in September. But due to in-cell touch panel and casing yield rate limits, ability to offset older models' shipments decrease will be moderate," Kuo writes in a research note.

Game Center

Cross platform play is coming to Apple's Game Center. Game Center, Apple's online multiplayer social gaming network, will support Mac-to-Mac and cross-device gaming, so you can play from your Mac against someone on an iPhone or iPad and any of them can push that over AirPlay to their Apple TV. It's an Apple world, everyone.

Not only that: Apple just announced the addition of "Challenged" to the Game Center, which are basically like Xbox Live Achievements, except for Apple games.

Game Center is available for iOS devices capable of running iOS 4.2 or later, and will be  integrated into the latest version of Mac OS X, Mountain Lion, set for a summer 2012 release.

Apple LogoAccording to Apple, speaking at their World Wide Developer's conference, Diablo 3 will be updated to take advantage of the higher definition, "retina" displays of the company's new line of MacBook Pro computers.

"You are going to see a gaming experience unlike any you've seen before," Apple CEO Tim Cook said.

Are Valve And Apple Working Together To Create A Gaming Console?

Valve and Apple did not have a sitdown, despite recent reports to the contrary. Gabe Newell confirmed as much in a new interview for the just-released Seven Day Cooldown podcast (via Kotaku). Reports emerged on April 14, 2012 that Cook had been spotted at Valve HQ in Bellevue, Washington. But that's just not the case, Newell revealed.

Here's his statement on the matter in full:

We actually, we all sent mail to each other, going, 'Who's Tim Cook meeting with? Is he meeting with you? I'm not meeting with Tim Cook.' So we're... it's one of those rumors that was stated so factually that we were actually confused.

No one here was meeting with Tim Cook or with anybody at Apple that day. I wish we were! We have a long list of things we'd love to see Apple do to support games and gaming better. But no, we didn't meet with Tim Cook. He seems like a smart guy, but I've never actually met him.

The next version of the Apple iPad will almost certainly be announced tomorrow morning, but it looks like it won't be called "The iPad 3." Instead, it will be called "iPad HD," according to a "developer who's previously provided reliable information with respect to things Apple," reported by CNET.

Obviously, the idea of the name is to call attention to the (supposedly) big feature of the next iPad: Its high definition screen. Previous rumors have pointed to the next iPad being a beefy, powerful machine. Rumors say that there is a quad-core processor with 4G LTE capacity.

It looks increasingly like the iPad 3 will be unveiled by Apple next week, and if its true stats match up to the rumors and speculation, it will be more than powerful enough to deliver "core" gaming experiences.

According to a tweet from CNBC, here's how the iPad 3 will break down:

"Quad-Core iPad 3 with 4G LTE to be unveiled in New York next week. -Sources"

Supposedly, the iPad 3 will go on sale on March 9, but will be announced on March 7. Apple sent out invites to an iPad-related event taking place on March 7 at San Francisco's Yerba Buena Center for the Arts.

What do you think? Are you going to pick one up? Personally, I'm cool with my iPad 2 and don't want anything new, but I might change my mind when I see whatever is packed into the iPad 3!

iphone Vs ipad

Apple just announced what’s the equivalent to a new gaming platform with potentially thousands of popular games at launch, and you probably didn’t even notice the news. It was just one part of this week's big unveiling of Mac OS 10.8, aka Mountain Lion. Among the features hogging the spotlight are the expansion of iCloud file support, full AirPlay mirroring (not just a few specific applications), Twitter integration, and iOS’ Messages, Reminders, Notes (no longer tucked away in Mail) and Notifications (goodbye, Growl) all being ported to the Mac. But what gamers should be most excited about is the addition of Game Center.

Game Center for Mac, like the iOS app, allows you to track your points, achievements, and leaderboard rank among Game Center-supported games. There’s also a tab at the top that includes game app recommendations, both free and paid. Word of mouth, however, is the best way to discover new games, and for that, Apple is including a “Friends” tab. Seeing which Game Center games your friends own is likely to encourage you to go to the App Store and download the same apps for cooperative and competitive play. There’s nothing more motivating than going to a friend’s profile and seeing a mutually owned game listed with the words “Ranked higher than me.”
