It’s that time of year again, and Mobile World Congress 2011 is just starting to kick-off in Barcelona with more focus on gaming than any year before. We have looked at alternatives to the upcoming iPhone 5 before, but with the show starting we’re seeing some real challenges to Apple’s app empire.
New gaming capabilities will be shown at MWC, with some brands and mobile manufactures aiming for the hardcore gamer with better graphics, and hardware. The PlayStation Phone has given the developer just what they need to create the next generation of mobile games.
You can see a video below that shows an exclusive look at Guitar Hero from Glu Mobile, which is running on the new Xperia Play (also known as the PlayStation phone). The video is thanks to Gamer Live, and shows a behind the scenes look at this Android 3.0 Smartphone.
You can see another video in this article that shows Peter Farago from research firm Flurry, and he explains the buzz around Windows Phone 7, the new Nokia and Microsoft partnership, and looks at how developers are showing that they are willing to develop for multi-platforms, even with the extra costs involved.
