iPad Gaming Coming to a TV Near You

There’s a whole lotta ruckus surrounding the fabulous iPad/iPhone game The Incident of late. With the recent release of the of Version 1.2 of the The Incident, The game’s developer Matt Comi gave giddy players the ability to control all of the action on their iPad screen by using their iPhone or iPod touch. If that wasn’t enough awesome sauce for you, then you’ll be thrilled to hear about the second generous helping he has planned: With the release of Version 1.3 of the application, gamers will be able to get their pew-pew fix on an even larger scale as the incident will be playable on TVs and monitors via a direct iPad connection.

Yeah, we’re kinda excited.

While Comi doesn’t reveal exactly how he’s managed to get his game up and running on an HDTV at the same time as he controls it with another iOS device, it all bodes well for the future of iOS gaming. With so much talk of late surrounding whether or not the latest iteration of Apple TV could act as another portal to the constantly growing world of iOS applications in conjunction with what we’re seeing from The Incident, it may only be a matter of time before we see any number of popular applications make the jump from our iOS powered devices to the big screens of living rooms everywhere.

Hey Nintendo: Remember back when you mentioned that Apple was the “enemy of the future“? Yeah, Cupertino’s coming for you. Big time.
