No real sports ??

Where are the (REAL SPORTS) titles ?The iphone is no doubt the best mobile device out there right now. So why are there no (REAL) football or baseball or basketball games out there in the app store ? This is crazy , i see friends and family playing madden on thier phones and tiger woods golf but i have nothing to show with this top notch phone that has no real sports titles available. Apple needs to get thier act together and get these third party developers on board and fast. That app store has no (REAL SPORTS) games but real soccer 09. That is shameful.

Give it time, this is a very new platform, and most big sports titles come from the main game companies which haven't all started producing games for the app store yet. Plus, game's like Madden etc are licensed, so may take longer to make the switch or have the details worked out.

Agreed - I would love to see more sports games made for the iPhone. Tiger Woods 09 should be released sometime soon, but I would really like to see a Madden or similar football game

I agree 100%.
It makes no sense. There are like 10 ping pong games but no Baseball, Basketball, Football or Hockey. Lame.

Second that, although I don't know how I would pick out all the fine details of a players contract on that small screen with my finger. Plus it would be cut down in features just like the PSP version, so maybe I'll stick to my laptop.

Is there any information about Gameloft making a Real Soccer 2010, or will it be an update to the current game, etc; or am I getting ahead of the topic here?
