Hot Damn, Real Racing 3 For iPhone Looks Better Than Some Full-Blown Console Games

By Sam Gibbs on at

OK, the Real Racing series has always pushed the boundaries of what's possible on the iPhone and iPad, but EA's latest trailer, with real pre-alpha game play footage, looks truly incredible. This is the future of mobile gaming, and it's console-quality.

The phrase "console-quality" gets banded about quite a lot in relation to mobile gaming, but looking at the visuals on show here, it's practically PS3-level. RR3 will also apparently come packing fully licenced cars and tracks, including Silverstone. Honestly, I can't wait to get my hands on this thing, and that's the first time I've ever said that about a mobile game. Real Racing 3 should be out sometime later this year -- this might be enough to get me to buy a new iPad. [YouTube via Pocket Arcade]
