    • A little hidden feature in the SDK allows games to be created to be played on the Television! Motoracer demoed what it would look like:

    That would be cool! Especially if you could plug other iPod's in xD

    Imagine the strain on the processor to fill the tv resolution. Would be Sloooooow-ish

    I heard that the 2G played ok though

    If you read the article(s), it did say the 2G iPod Touch has an advantage. Also, Motoracer got around 20 FPS on a 40 inch TV. Which ain't bad.

    20Fps aint bad at all, i'm loving the idea of playing games on my tv like hooking the PSP up to the tv.

    I caught it on engadget so i caught the jist of it from that, shame apple won't open up the SDK to play it though...unless they have something planned :O

    Meh, whatever. The iPhone/Touch should stick to being a portable gaming device.
    Leave the consoles such as Xbox360 and PS3 for the TV's.

    I watched this earlier, saw it coming a couple weeks or so ago when they found the undocumented api.
