Somewhere a Sony exec is weeping


As if the recent news of the decimation of Sony's PSP format at the hands of the iPhone and iPod touch weren't depressing enough, here comes Firemint with their swanky new Real Racing HD footage to really put a downer on Sony's portable gaming aspirations. Real Racing for the iPhone is one of our favourite games, it's certainly in the games-we-are-never-deleting category and if this video is anything to go by the HD version will have a permanent place on our iPads too.

If you live outside the US you'll have to make do with playing this video back at full screen on your laptop display whilst clutching the edges of the screen and pretending. For those in the US you have less than 24 hours before all this is yours. Grab yourself a copy now.

For comparison we present a video from yesterday's gaming format, Grand Turismo for the Sony PSP. There's plenty of detail, but the frame rate is quite pedestrian.

Check back tomorrow for further analysis on how the iPad could become the dominant portable gaming format in the very near future.
