Apple’s iPhone 3G S graphics capabilities go ‘beyond PSP’

“Fishlabs boss Michael Schade is bullish about the potential of Apple’s new iPhone 3G S as a gaming device, particularly its graphics capabilities,” Stuart Dredge reports for PocketGamer. “‘The OpenGL 2.0 support will push the iPhone beyond PSP,’ he says, although he does have a caveat about how developers will be making use of those features.”

“‘As graphic assets need to be designed from scratch to benefit from 2.0 shaders it will be very hard to monetize the extra effort in the early days,’ he says. ‘It’s definitiely not worth it for $0.99 apps,'” Dredge reports.

Dredge reports, “Fishlabs, of course, is known for crafting high-quality 3D games, so we sense the company will be getting its teeth into those OpenGL ES 2.0 capabilities sooner rather than later.”
