EA Mobile is making a big bet on the iPhone and iPod Touch, announcing plans this week to port more than a dozen of its most popular games to Apple's gadgets.
EA Mobile's Travis Boatman--a fixture onstage at Apple's last two iPhone software events--announced this news during a keynote address at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco Tuesday. At some point this year, EA Mobile will release versions of franchises like Madden NFL, Wolfenstein, Command and Conquer, and NBA Live, according to PocketGamer.
Gaming continues to be one of the most active areas on the App Store, and game developers at GDC flocked to sessions regarding the iPhone--conference organizers were forced to turn away late-arriving attendees to some sessions, according to my colleague Daniel Terdiman. Apple has helped encourage the idea of the iPhone and especially the iPod Touch as next-generation gaming devices with its latest advertisements for those devices.
