Around 160 games at App Store launch

Thursday, 10th July 2008 11:23 GMT By Mike

In a telephone interview with the New York Times, Apple mogul Steve Jobs has said that there will be around 160 games for iPhone when the App Store launches later today.

The piece says that 500 applications will be released in total, and that a third of those will be games. Our crack team of gibbering monkeys makes that around 160 titles all together.

The better news is that around 90 percent of these game will sell for $9.99 or less so there should be something for everyone.

“The reaction we have gotten so far has been really strong,” Jobs said. “The quality and the sophistication of the applications you can write for the iPhone is in a different class.”

    iPhone supports fully hardware accelerated Open GL ES just like the PS3 (but obviously tailored for the lesser GPU) so there is a lot of room for quality graphics. Hell, some of the games now in development easily rival PSP!. Take a look at the Kroll from Digital Legends an awesome god of war clone that was shown during Apple’s WWDC.
