Real Racing 2 Will Be First to Support Dual-Screen Gaming Over AirPlay



Firemint wowed us all when it updated Real Racing 2 to support 1080p video output via the iPad’s AV Adapter. It comes as no surprise to us, then, that when iOS 5 goes live later this year, this popular racing sim will be the first title to offer dual-screen gaming over AirPlay on your HDTV.

For those of you who own an iPad 2 and the AV Adapter and you have any interest in iOS gaming, I urge you to buy this game and hook it up to your HDTV. The experience is mesmerising, and you’ll wonder how you can achieve such spectacular high-definition gameplay from your tablet.

The experience promises to be even better, however, when iOS 5 goes live this Fall. Rather than being tethered to your TV with by a HDMI lead, you’ll be able to play wirelessly over AirPlay through your Apple TV:

Firemint’s Real Racing 2 HD with AirPlay is a game-changer

Relish Real Racing 2 HD’s superb visuals as they’re streamed effortlessly to your big screen TV. Grip your iPad 2 and steer with unerring precision and the freedom of wireless play. Stay closer than ever to the track with real-time racing telemetry, displayed directly on your iPad’s screen.

For me, this is almost as rousing as the release of iOS 5 itself.

Could such a simple feature mean the iPad will one day rival dedicated games consoles?
