Hold the Phone! Game Developers See iPhone Potential

The Game Developers Conference got an eye-opener as ngmoco CEO Neil Young outlined the gaming potential for Apple, Inc.'s iPhone. Young said Nintendo's handheld DS outstripped Sony's PlayStation Portable because it had more functionality. Apple's iPhone, Young said, has so many features that it's growing "way faster than the DS."

Tuesday's session of the Game Developers Conference at the Moscone Center in San Francisco opened with a provocative topic: Why the iPhone Has Changed Everything. For an industry that has long regarded Apple as an afterthought when it comes to serious gaming, it was an eye-opening presentation.

The talk was delivered by Neil Young, founder and CEO of ngmoco, one of the leading developers of games for the iPhone and the iPod touch. Among the company's titles are the popular Word Fu, Rolando, Topple, Dropship, and Dr. Awesome, Microsurgeon M.D.
