Apple Gaming Moves a Small Step Closer

Firemint has announced a dual screen capability for Real Racing 2 HD which uses AirPlay mirroring in iOS5 to show a race car on your TV (via Apple TV) while status information is on your iPad. The iPad acts as the controller. This is a bit similar to what Nintendo is showing at E3 for their Wii U. However, what I don’t see is multiplayer. Also, the iPad is running the game. Apple TV is just acting as a display device. This isn’t as complete as where Nintendo is heading but I see no reason it can’t be. Apple just has to make the Apple TV a gaming platform. Come on Apple. The hooks are there.
