Will We Actually Get Quake 3 for the BlackBerry PlayBook?

Quake Multitasking PlayBook Quake Multitasking PlayBook2

One of the relatively impressive demos RIM has been showing off at shows is what they are calling a Quake 3 demo app. I grilled a few of the demo reps since CES and none of them could tell me if the app was just a video of Quake 3 running or the actual open source Quake 3 engine ported to the BlackBerry PlayBook. While the EA Need for Speed game is impressive I would love to actually play quake on the PlayBook and I keep on asking if they have it running yet…

Anybody else want to play Quake 3 on the PlayBook? The engine behind Quake is open sourced as id Tech 3 back in 2005 and you can get the full source code ZIP at this link. That could get really interesting once RIM gets around to releasing the C/C++ SDK for game developers.

Still it would be awesome if RIM shipped the PlayBook with Quake 3 preinstalled… :) You can check out some video of the Quake 3 demo RIM has been showing off courtesy of SlashGear below:

  1. Would be pretty cool to have quake on the playbook

  2. and i can dump my computer away. 😀

  3. The touch sensitivity looks much improved from CES demo’s. Looking really slick and responsive!

    Want it now!

  4. I am itching to get my hands on the C++ SDK. So many ports of good apps are possible…

  5. We’ve seen Quake, or the video of Quake playing in a few of the demo videos. It would be great to have it preinstalled to complement the EA games.

  6. Playbook alone is amazing, but releasing it with need for speed and maybe quake, RIM really stepping up there game!
