Pocket Gamer has some great footage and info on Real Racing, an awesome looking race game for the iPhone developed by Australian developer Firemint. The accelerometer controls look amazing, according to Pocket Gamer the tilt controls in Real Racing are better than in any other iPhone racing game. The best features aren’t the controls and the graphics, but it’s actually the social network features that will kick ass. With head-to-head multiplayer over wi-fi and the ability to upload your best times to a web-based community this game will offer tons of content. You’ll be able to compete against your friends in mini-leagues and watch their data via Facebook and OpenSocial applications. Real Racing could be a Nokia N-Gage first party title, but they might go with a publisher or just release it in the App Store.

    At first I thought there was only one perspective, but after watching the second video, I saw the 3rd person view which looks awesome. The car physics looks pretty sweet too!

    I agree, the graphics look just as amazing as the graphics of the PSP. But the iPhone has more graphical power than the PSP so this is just the beginning I think. The iPhone has a lot of undiscovered power hidden inside!

    It’s too bad because I actually bought my first PSP only a few weeks before I bought the new 3G iPhone. I’ve played the PSP maybe a few times and I’m not interested in it anymore. BUT the iPhone games on the other hand…and their potential, are awesome.

    The PSP is a great device, but it just doesn’t have that many good games and too many ports of PlayStation 2 and Wii games. That’s why the PSP is losing from the Nintendo DS, it doesn’t have enough cool exclusive titles.
