Will we see better gaming graphics in 2010?

i am wondering if we can see more solid gaming experience for some titles this year.

last year we had some good games that showcase what iphone gaming can do. however the graphics in the 3d still lacks a bit behind psp and other console even when iphone proves to have better graphics hardware.

also on the other hand, games that are ported from console seems lacking in the graphics in the iphone. why is that so? done on purpose by developer or the limitation of iphone? i like to know more insights on this.

Uh it's this year! Lol

well the unreal engine might become available and that has demonstrated good graphic capabilities. So yes, hopefully.

The standard of iPhone gaming is sure to increase over time. Look at the earliest games for consoles such as the PS1 etc. They had bad graphics but still cost as much as a game would now. Over time, graphics improve, with normally no increase in price, so by 2020 we will probably have better graphics than PSP's today and the price for these games will still be around the same (hopefully).

iPhone gaming graphics might not significantly improve this year, but there will be a steady rise which will offer better graphics over-all in the long run.

quite agree with you. but as iphone improve, others will also improve in graphics too. i never hope iphone graphics better than other platform but at least when games ported over to iphone should retain the same graphics quality.

take Assassins Creed 2 for example. the graphics quality is so much difference.

There aren't any titles worth looking out for 2010?

The main issue I see for this system is the need to support legacy devices(early iPhone/Pod). It will come, but will take time. Ravensword really showed how a good open world 3D environment could work.
