[Seattle Times] Q&A: Epic co-founder on iPad 2's gaming potential

Q: When will games appear that take advantage of the new iPad's increased power?

A: I don't think it will take very long. "Infinity Blade" (below) will already run faster and better because of this, and we can now turn up the texture detail and turn on some of the effects that we'd turned off on iPad because iPad was a more challenging development environment than iPhone, given the higher resolution screen.

An iPad has 20 percent more pixels on the screen than an iPhone 4, yet the CPU [central processing unit] and GPU [graphics processing unit] in the iPad were introduced before the iPhone 4, so the iPhone 4's more powerful and has more features.

Looks like Epic has some interesting plans for iPad 2 game development.

It's got nothing to do with apple. Mobile gaming makes me sick.

This. Also, Bulletstorm sucks. Not sure how Epic would make another game fly without resorting to the gay space marine niche.

I dont like apple at all but I have to say the Ipad does seem to be at least somewhat decent as a gaming device. It would be cooler if they would let you connect a controller though. Touch screen is ok but not for HC games.
