I’m sure you’re probably familiar with Namco, creators of such great games like Time Crisis. If you never played that game, it involved the use of a light gun to shoot opponents.
Time Crisis has just been put on the iPad 2 and Mac computers, with the name of a Time Crisis 2nd Strike HD. Namco has sweetened the deal by giving out a free app for the iPhone that can pair with the iPad or Mac.
In other words, it turns the iPhone into a light gun. The app allows you to shoot with a variety of sounds like a handgun, machine gun, shotgun, and a grenade launcher.
It is nice to see that the iPhone is pairing up to the other larger products. We reported about the Pirata Boat Race which can sync with the PC and the iPhone, and something tells me that we will be seeing more applications like this in the future.
Personally, I think this is what the Wii U is all about, using something with a screen and interacting with something with a bigger screen. Perhaps one day, all of our screens will work together. Is this really a silly dream, or are we just headed in this direction?
