You guys have to check this out. Hermitworks managed to get Quake 3 running on a pair of iPod Touch personal media players and have a video showing it off. Cool stuff!

So we’ve been playing around with Quake 3 and Apple’s iTouch. Scott grabbed the icculus source and with a few modifications had it running pretty quick.

I almost want an iPod now.

Some sort of optical mouse attachment to it, and I would want it.

Did anyone actually get to see it or download it before the site went offline?

Sorry about the downtime, folks.
The site will be periodically up and down for the next few hours, as we've been dugg to the front page.

Apparently BlueHost lied when they said that they could handle a Digg Effect.... They're not handling it too well if you ask me.

Between Digg and the [H] they didn't stand a chance. :p

If the weekend [H] effect plus Digg took the site down, wait til the regular weekly traffic comes back. Yikes!

looks smooth, why does this run so much smoother on the iPod than the PocketPC Quake3 ports?

Looks fantastic. If I could get a game like Civilization or Starcraft on an Ipod Touch or Iphone it would definitely be my next media player.

Yeah, but can it play doom? ;)

Quake 3 is by far more impressive than being able to play the original doom.

What doesn't play doom? Everything does. Cellphones do for a long time.

amen to that :D

If they made a portable Civ....i think i would go insane. I love that game.

Unless you want to hack your Ipod Touch with jailbreak, you'll have to wait for June for things like this, when they roll out SDK. The Iphone and Touch have built in opengl acceleration and 3d potentiometers so they can hande things like this.

Quake 3 isn't out yet... IF it even does come out. Nowhere does it say it'll be released to the public. Sorry!

Depot Manager: Hey, you still have a passenger!
Bus Driver: Yeah, He was on the whole route, when I told him it was the last stop he just said "One More Turn"

??? If I understand what you are saying is that it WILL NOT be released to the public. Why would you do that? You know people are just going to say its a video, not actual play footage. Kinda lame IMHO, that you would get everyone interested and then not produce. I understand that you do not have to, just dissappointing.

The problem with this is, yeah it looks great, but if it controls horribly it'll be pointless to play. Essentially it'll be a pretty tech demo. Neat, but useless without proper input. Do you really want to control your character by tilting the device?
