Apple demos iPhone 4S capability with Infinity Blade 2

A5 chip and dual core CPU means 7x graphical performance

Epic's Mike Capps and Donald Mustard of Chair took the stage at Apple's press event this evening to demonstrate the power of the new 4S model iPhone with Infinity Blade 2.

After demonstrating a boss battle on stage at the event, Mike Capps dated the game for December 1 and told audiences that it was "only going to run like this on the iPhone 4S. Why? Because it's awesome."

The new phone will feature a dual core CPU and A5 processor, giving it a theoretical 7x graphical performance boost over the iPhone 4.

Battery life has been improved to eight hours of talk time and data transfer has been increased to a potential of around 14.4mbs download. The phone's camera has also been improved.

The iPhone 4S will be available on 14 October in the US, Canada, Australia, the UK, France Germany and Japan. Pre-orders will be taken from 7 October. US Pricing will be a 16GB model for $199, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399.

I know a lot of people criticized the original Infinity Blade for being too much 'style-over-substance' but I thought it was a great example of how to downsize a, traditionally, large genre of video game for a mobile phone. Looking forward to playing this.

I loved it. Resurrecting the game play from Mike Tysons Punch Out on NES and combining it with a touch interface was a match made in heaven. One of the first completely forgotten game genres that could have real legs on the iPad.

The RPG-lite elements gave it a little bit more of an addictive hook too.

"US Pricing will be a 16GB model for $199, 32GB for $299, and 64GB for $399."

One minute, have Apple made a massive reversal on pricing policy, or are we really being that screwed in the UK.
Just looked around online, the iPhone 4 16Gb is still around 500 free from contract, the 3GS 8Gb is 350-400, the 4S is $199US?

Andrew, the pricing they're quoting is in ADDITION to a contract in the US, not free of one... that's why one of the iPhone 4 models is now going to be free :-)

@Robert. Aha! I thought those prices sounded very un-Apple.
Out of interest, what sort of money does the callplan that is associated with cost in the US?

Don't forget that the US also has sales tax which is added ON TOP of the Internet prices.

The iPhone 4s looks like a solid entry to the iPhone family but once iOS 5 launches my iPhone 4 will see me through to when my upgrade is due which means I can hold out on the off chance that we still see the iPhone 5 next June/July.

"The new phone will feature a dual core CPU and A5 processor, giving it a theoretical 7x graphical performance boost over the iPhone 4."

1) The A5 processor is the dual core CPU...

"only going to run like this on the iPhone 4S. Why? Because it's awesome."

2) That would be quite a shock as its the same cpu and graphics hardware as the Galaxy S2 so I would imagine it will run almost identically as it.
