    Hi guys, many of you all know me already (I'm usually in the gaming section), but for those who don't, my name is Chris Hardin, and I write for NintendoPlayers.com. I am, of course, a fellow Apple fanatic like you all :)

    Anyway, this week I got to spend a couple of days with Hudson Entertainment. Unfortunately due to some audio equipment failure I didn't get everything from the discussion I had with the CEO, but it was quite in depth.

    Here's what I published, and the relevant quotes:

    Interview with Hudson CEO John Greiner:

    And the writeup of the event:

    I can't emphasize enough how enthusiastic Hudson seemed about iPhone development. They talked like they'd been planning it and had all sorts of ideas.

    Since Hudson Entertainment has a strong focus on mobile phone games it makes sense.

    Anyway, I wanted to be the first to hit you guys with that news tidbit. When Hudson starts coming out with iPhone games, I called it first! :D

    haha nice. As long as they don't make a Crazy Frog game then we're in business.

    The SDK is really going to make the iPhone / iPod Touch shine, and I can't wait to see what the talented people out there will create for it.

    Bomberman or Bonk would be cool...not sure how controls would work, but I have seen a Wii remote pointer and DS stylus concept for Bomberman controls so it is possible.

    With Apple having gaming patents as well this seems to really be heating up :)

    Hudson has just launched a web portal for iPhone/iPod Touch web-based (Ajax) games called "Do the Hudson":

    And when the SDK is available they'll start making games that way.

    Told you so! :)
