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.”
