need for speed

The BlackBerry Storm 2 has finally got its first ever full 3D game in the form of Need for Speed Shift 3D.

The game takes advantage of the BlackBerry Storm 2's access to OpenGL graphics technology to provide a console-style graphical experience and bring 3D gaming to Research in Motion's business phone.

Back in November 2009, EA demonstrated the potential of OpenGL on the Storm 2 during the BlackBerry Dev Con, but it has taken several months for the first commercial product to emerge.

Players are given a choice of eight cars and a wide range of tracks based on some of the world's most famous cities.

An option to change the camera view is also available to let gamers see the race from within the cabin or in the traditional third-person rear view.

Storm 2 owners can pick up the title now for £7.09 from the BlackBerry App World online software store.

Version 6.0 of the BlackBerry operating system is in the works and many expect that deeper, cheaper 3D games will emerge after it launches.
