Remember Crysis? And before that, the awesome Far Cry? Well, it seems as if Crytek, the guys behind two of the most visually impressive 3D game engines in history, are looking for people to head up an iOS game division. While there’s no word if we will be playing Crysis on our iPhones anytime soon, if the Unreal Engine can be squished into an iPhone, why not the CryEngine? (Develop, image courtesy of Joystiq)

News is Epic’s Unreal Engine – of Gears of War and Bioshock fame – is coming to an iPhone / iPod / iPad near you, and soon.
If you haven’t downloaded the eminently awesome tech demo off the iTunes Store yet, we suggest you do so right now. It’s not a full-on game yet, but does let you walk around a medieval town in awe, as you gaze at some admittedly pretty spectacular scenery. And if Epic chooses to license the iOS version of the Unreal Engine, as they have done in the past with their PC, Xbox and PS3 versions, we should be seeing some promising gaming titles in the next 12 months.
Watch this space for more news. We’re pretty excited at the prospect of one of the big gaming guns joining the iOS gaming world as it should mean a raising of the bar when it comes to quality of gaming releases. All we need now is an Android port, and we’re pretty much ready to ditch the PSP, what with Windows Mobile 7 looking promising.

In what may come as a surprise to many, the worldwide mobile operating system market is not dominated by Apple, BlackBerry or even Android, but by Nokia. Yup, all those crappy $350 Nokia 12XXs you see in Wanchai and Mongkok and in the hands of many a backpack-toting traveler make up close to 50% of all mobile phones in use, meaning that although it seems like every, damned person is an Apple fan, in reality, they’re Nokia fans (or perhaps you just don’t mix in wide enough circles?).
