At an Apple event earlier today in San Francisco, Gears of War developer Epic Games dropped in to show the real purpose of the iPhone: to competitively shiv your friends wirelessly. We hear you scream from your computer, “By what method will I shiv them?! Please tell me!” Well, get a load of Project Sword, powered by the Unreal Engine itself and due out this holiday season.

Epic's Mike Capps and Donald Mustard presented the first and third-person action game and its ability to quickly and remotely find competitors via the iPhone's Game Center matchmaking service. After a brief period of showing the graphical prowess of the mobile game, the duo went at it in a display of developer tête-à-tête. Game Center achievements were also reportedly popping up as the two were playing.
Thank God. I mean, finally, a use for that wacky iPhone, amiright?
