If you have an iPhone or an iPad I am sure you have it crammed full of apps and several of those apps are going to be games. The two platforms have proven to be very popular for gamers and are putting a crimp in the sales of some traditional portable game systems. A new product to allow multiplayer gaming on the iPhone or iPad has been spied at the FCC.


The docking stating is from Griffin and is called the PartyDock. The PartyDock has four individual wireless controllers that allow four people to play compatible games at the same time. The dock will fit the iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad and comes with three games to start. Those three games include Midway Motors, Fishing Frenzy and Flippin' Frogs.

There will reportedly be more games that come later from Griffin and will be offered in the App Store. If you are wondering how four people will see the screen on the iPhone to play, the dock supports an external screen. That would mean you can hook the PartyDock to your TV and every one can see. There is no word on pricing or availability at this time.
