The new "X-Men Origins: Wolverine" game is doing a heck of a job proving that games based on movies can actually be, well... good -- but in another surprise to veteran gamers, the iPhone app created to promote the game could actually be worth a peek, too. Read More...

nullI played 16 PC and other miscellaneous games for fun in 2008 and finished three of them.

As I did last year, I've compiled a list of the games that I played for fun in 2008. One list per major gaming platform.

Apple called out Nintendo and Sony during their press conference this morning.

While showing a new line of iPods, Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled a commercial for the iPod Touch touting it's "the best portable device for playing games," reports Engadget.

It's worth noting that Apple did not demonstrate today's games on the iPhone (which the games also work on) or say it's the best mobile device for games. Jobs and co. are throwing the iPhone and iPod Touch into the same arena as the DS and PSP.

We already asked both Nintendo and Sony what they think of Apple's new gaming platform, but neither acknowledged the company as a direct competitor. But with over 3,000 applications available on iTunes -- 718 of which are games, and increasing every day -- that might be changing.

What do you make of Apple's statement?
