Electronic Arts looks to be talking with Apple about developing casual games for the upcoming iPhone, according to BusinessWeek. EA currently produces such titles for the iPod. Mitch Lasky of EA Mobile told said his company is in talks with Apple regarding iPhone plans and that “we see a lot of the technology that we’ve utilized on the iPod side being incorporated into the iPhone.” Apple at this point has not indicated if games would be developed for the new device.

JT, try Grand Theft Auto San iPhone. Everything better and you could play it on you iPhone if you get the 8GB and have no contacts, texts, movies, music etc on it.

This doesn’t strike me as earth-shattering news… it just means games like EA’s Sodoku, etc. will work on the iPhone as well as the 5G iPod.  You think iPhone owners would be ok with, say, Vortex working on 5G iPods but not on their $600 iPhone?

And btw, anyone who thinks this means we’re going to see console-quality (or even PSP quality) games on a 4-8GB device is smoking something.  Take a look at what’s available for the 5G iPod… that’s pretty much it, I’d imagine.
