Nova, NFS: Shift And MLB Runs Slick On iPad

by Ernice Gilbert on January 27th, 2010, under Apple, EA, Screen Shots

The iPad was announced a few moments ago and if one thing’s clear is the fact that Apple plans to move full throttle in the gaming industry with its new gadget.

EA has been really excited about the new tech way before its unveiling and now we see screens of at least one of the publisher’s games running on the device, plus Nova and MLB.com.

Travis Boatman from EA: “When Apple invited us to come on site, we couldn’t have been more excited. But we wanted to check out this device’s performance as gamers.”

Chad Evans from MLB.com — “We were excited to build something for the iPad. We had to create a whole new experience for this display.”

Mark Hickey from Gameloft demonstrating their new FPS Nova: “I can slide the d-pad on the screen…”

    Hard to tell yet if the iPad will take off for gaming but from the videos I’ve seen of NFS and MLB playing it looks really cool and would be pretty fun to play. It has an accelerometer in it like the iPhone so I’m sure alot of motion will be involved in most of the games. Personally I probably won’t buy it as I don’t even have a new gen console and 500 bucks is hard for me to save up but if I had the money I would definetly buy it. If your a fan of the iPhone and its games you definetly want to check out its big brother iPad.

    I don’t see this as going into gaming at all.

    I think it’s more of a take at the Kindle and eReaders in general.

    The iPad at $500, is just an iPod Touch with a larger screen from what I’ve seen of it this afternoon.

    I really don’t see the point of this thing.
