Sports Games

I know real soccer 09 just dropped in price, but are there any upcoming sports titles that seem like they are worth waiting for . If not, is real soccer worth it?

Real Soccer is worth getting even if you are not a soccer fan, esp if you have someone with whom to play via WIFI.

Touchsport Tennis is on sale ($0.99) and is the best representation of the sport, with shortcomings (Virtua Tennis it is not...yet)

I imagine that Hand Held Games and Freeverse are working on products. Chris from Rocket Pocket Games is working on a Basketball title, but this may be a while.

Tiger Woods PGA Golf is due out on Dec 31.

See forum on Baseball Superstars 2009.

I think Real Soccer 09 is a great value. If you're a soccer fan there are 6 league titles and 6 cup tournaments to win in addition to exhibition games. Most national teams and many leagues are there. Only two MLS teams (LA and DC) if you're an American soccer fan. But trying to earn all of the trophies alone should take a good amount of time... I average probably 1.5 games per day and have unlocked only 4 in two weeks. Season trophies take a while because the seasons are usually around 35-40 games long each.

Another game to add is ace tennis online. This is good for a little 10 minute game while drinking your starbucks coffee.

Although Real Football '09 is great, I would be tempted to wait if I were you.

If Gameloft are anything like EA (ie FIFA) there will be a Real Football '10 before too long.

I think it would be incredible if 2K games made a game from the NBA 2K series on the iPod Touch/iPhone. That would just make the iPod Touch/iPhone complete to me.

I honestly would not be suprised at the moment. I've only found this site and there are new games being submitted every hour or so. And 2-3 big updates on the main side, this system is getting more and more attention. Maybe send a message to 2K games with the idea

Probably not, as they can just update Real Football '09 and change the name. When you are shipping non-modifiable physical game units, the progression you suggest is more conceivable.
