After several delays, Electronic Arts has introduced its Need For Speed Undercover game for the iPhone and iPod touch. Originally planned for a 2008 release, then pushed to March 2009, and finally to May, Need For Speed Undercover is a racing game offering 3D graphics, customizable vehicles, and an in-game sound track featuring well-known artists, as well as the option to listen to music from the iPod app. Features include 20 different cars like the Porsche Carrera GT, Nissan 370Z, Lamborghini Gallardo, and more, 24 secret missions, eight game modes, including Highway Battle, Sprint, and Cop Takeout, the ability to earn performance upgrades, and an in-game handler played by Maggie Q. Need For Speed Undercover is available now from the App Store and is priced at $10.

as well as the option to listen to music from the iPod app[end of quote]

I thought it was only possible for iPhone OS 3.0 to access iPod music pool while gaming, as showed at the very last Apple event, by EA.

Remember the Dancing “Scott”?

Can anybody explain what’s the difference?

No multiplayer ugh!!!

Daaang.  A $10 price point?  For a game that’s been delayed umpteen times, and as Hansel points out, no mulitplayer - that’s a bit steep.

I can’t believe how cheap some iPhone people are. Some of us complain about paying $10 when games have never been sold this cheaply anywhere else. For simple games I would expect to pay around $30 for the DS. If you complain about paying a measly $10 for a game, then maybe you should not have purchased an iPhone and that money would better be used to buy Top Ramen noodles or something.

Everyone complains about a $10 game on the iPhone.  This game would be $30 at least on the DS and more on the PSP.  Your getting awesome games for dirt cheap prices.

@ #1: The phrase in the article, “as well as the option to listen to music from the iPod app,” refers to the ability to launch the app while music (from the iPod app) is playing.  In other words, if you launch the app while music is playing, the app won’t stop your music to play its own soundtrack. Remember that iPod is one of a very few iPhone apps that are allowed to run in the background.
