Firemint, the developers behind Real Racing 2 HD (not to mention Flight Control) recently released a video showcasing the ability for Real Racing 2 HD to render out video in full 1080p HD quality using the iPad 2’s video mirroring capabilities.
Touch Arcade notes:
The game is said to run at a solid 30fps in this mode, and real-time telemetry between the iPad screen and TV will allow for no lag while controlling the game with the iPad.
This announcement is big news, as it effectively paves the way for your iOS device playing the part of a home gaming console in addition to a mobile platform. While not quite as powerful as the current crop of gaming consoles, and iPad 2 is capable of some impressive visuals, and the appeal of being able to play the same games on my living room TV that I play while I’m out and about is huge.
