Apple has announced that the new iPod will support casual games.
While the new line of iPods do not feature many changes over the last models, they will support game downloads for the first time. Bejeweled, Cubis 2, Mahjong, Mini Golf, Pac Man, Tetris, Texas Hold 'Em, Vortex, and Zuma will all be available on the iTunes store for $4.99 US each.
All of the games will use the iPod wheel as a control interface; playing on a screen that is 60% brighter than the last models. Only the new iPods announced today will support gaming.
