A new update was released for Worms 2: Armageddon for iOS recently. The update enabled asynchronous play, which means the worms will no longer be bound by timers or quick lunch breaks. This will allow you to play the same game for as long as you please. Asynchronous play will support up to sixteen simultaneous matches, along with support for Bluetooth, Wi-Fi and local hotseat modes. Thanks, Joystiq.

Despite the roaring success of the iPad, Apple apparently still thinks they can do better. One plan reportedly on the table is to introduce a new iPad option with a reduced screen size. Thaiwanese tech site digitimes cited unnamed sources who told them that Apple would be purchasing 7.85 inch panels from LG Display.
The new device is said to be launching in March or April of next year, citing unnamed sources “in the supply chain.” According to the reports, this iPad will not replace the mainstay model, but will instead be a cheaper option to the iPad 2.

Remember when you first booted up Tekken on your PlayStation One, and your eyes welled up with tears as you declared that graphics would never get any better than that? Remember when your PS2 – and even your itsy-bitsy PSP – none-too-gently booted your PS1 into the retirement home?
Well, according to mobile game dev Fishlabs CEO Michael Schade, the Xbox 360′s about to receive some similarly stiff competition – from the iPad, of all things.

Portable gaming is Nintendo. Whether you’re spending your morning commute with a PSP, Nintendo DS, or Neo-Geo Pocket (RIP), to most passers-by, that little slab of plastic in your hands is a Gameboy. And oh, hey, 129 million sales. Nintendo’s throne is unassailable, right?
But we can remember a time when console gaming was the same way. “Wanna play Nintendo? Etc.” And according to a survey by Morgan Stanley’s Katy Huberty, Nintendo might be well served by remembering how that whole thing turned out.

Based off the Internet’s current state, the iPad announcement is the only thing that happened today. At all. Everything else – war, politics, Tiger Woods – was put on hold so that we could all watch Steve Jobs trot out a new Shiny Thing.
But what’s that mean for the wide world of videogames? Not much, actually, if analysts Michael Pachter and Jesse Divnich are to be believed.

Eric Lempel, SCEA’s director of PSN operations, has said that the service is no longer playing catch up with Xbox Live.
“I don’t think there’s a lot of ‘catch up’ [with XBL] any more. In some cases, I think we’ve got more, and we’ve got some other things they don’t have,” he told Industry Gamers.
“In terms of strengths, of course we’re still free, and we’re giving you a lot for free. It’s not just free online gaming, but we’ve got PlayStation Home, which is a massive community and application that’s totally free to use. I think there’s a lot we’re doing that in some cases they’re not doing, and I don’t see a lot of things they’re doing that we’re not.”
Lempel also elaborated that Sony did not want to go the Apple route with various software options, especially for PSP.
“Right now our free catalog consists of demos, wallpapers, themes and videos about games. I don’t think we want to degrade the experience you get from a PSP. Because [iPhone] is not a gaming-centric device, I think a user picks it up and says, ‘This is kind of dumb, but I don’t care because I know this device wasn’t intended for games’…. we don’t want to see a bunch of little things that don’t quite make sense or provide a good experience because I think that takes away from what the device is intended for.”
Just for reference purposes only, the amount of people that purchased an iPhone amounted to 3.79 million in quarter one of 2009 alone, which represented 123 percent unit growth over the year-ago quarter.

Here. According to that piece, Apple’s applied for trademark protection on “toys, games and playthings, namely, hand-held units for playing electronic games; hand-held units for playing video games; stand alone video game machines; electronic games other than those adapted for use with television receivers only; LCD game machines; electronic educational game machines; toys, namely battery-powered computer games.”
It could mean nothing. It could mean that Apple’s about the enter the games trade. Which would be pretty much the funniest story of the century, even though we’re only in year eight.
