iPod Touch Gaming Ad Shakes Things Up
Apple's newest online ad has a pretty cool media placement -- something that we're starting to see more and more. Its agency, TBWA/Media Arts Lab, created an iPhone ad for Yahoo Games, where the iPhone action -- in this case, gameplay -- begins to move all the elements on the page.

Besides the uniqueness of ad placement, it also demonstrates that Apple is continuing to push the iPod Touch as a gaming platform. Games continue to be the largest portion of the App Store and one iPhone game (Fieldrunners) was even chosen by Time Magazine as one of the Top 10 games of 2008. TouchArcade.com covers the emerging iPhone and iPod Touch gaming scene which has seen some recent notable releases including Dropship (Ngmoco), Hero of Sparta (Gameloft), and Centipede (Atari).
