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]
