In a recent interview with IGNan Apple executive claimed that the iPhone 15 Pro was “It will be the best gaming console“I was skeptical. Although Apple boasted about the capabilities of its new GPU in the A17 Pro chip and said it loves high-resolution gaming Resident Evil Villagethe Resident Evil 4 New edition, and Stranded death They’ll all be coming to the iPhone 15 Pro, I didn’t think they’d work very well in practice.
But after seeing actual footage Resident Evil Village While working on the iPhone 15 Pro, I came to realize that Apple’s vision isn’t as far off as I thought.
You can see the game in Video from YouTuber Vincent ChungStarting at 13:48. First, Chang plays village On the 15 Pro on the handheld gaming console attachment, the shots look very good. But then comes the good part: Zhang connects the phone to an external display and a DualSense controller, and, at least in his video, Resident Evil Village It looks closer than I expected to the graphical quality of the game on console.
I don’t think it will be a 1:1 match. According to the captions in Zhang’s video, the game’s resolution is locked at 1560 x 720, and its frame rate is “currently” locked at 30fps. And Zhang says the experience has its drawbacks: “The screen mirroring effect is definitely not as good as on a phone,” Zhang says. “Definitely not as good as the original effect on the game console.”
However, I can see how connecting your phone to a monitor to transfer console-quality games from your iPhone to a big screen could be attractive in a pinch. It may be especially useful when traveling or away from your home. We’ll have to wait and see how good the final iOS ports are village, RE4And Stranded death Indeed – and if Apple can convince more developers to bring their console-quality games to the iPhone – but I’m much more interested in it than I was last week.
The gaming push for the iPhone 15 Pro is part of a larger recent focus on high-end gaming from Apple. For Macs, for example, it introduced a Proton-like tool that can run Windows games. This actually means more games I can play on my MacBook Air, but while I wait, at least I’ll be able to give them Baldur’s Gate 3 Shot.
