One of the biggest details from last night's Sprint EVO event that almost every major news outlet has overlooked is that Need For Speed Shift will be available on Android June 4, to correspond with the 4G phone's launch.
I4U was at last night's event, where Sprint CEO Dan Hesse made a big point of saying that the HTC EVO device will be a powerful game player.

Running on a 4G network, it will be able to play multiplayer games online like never before. Even if you're using 3G, though, it'll be a bit nicer than other phones on the market today because of a really crisp screen, and a larger display (4.3 inches) than most current-generation phones.

The biggest game-related announcement, though, was that Need For Speed Shift, one of the best-selling iPhone games, will be available on the Android Market, for all Android devices, on the EVO's launch date of June 4.

We saw a demo of the game in action, and like the iPhone version of NFS: Shift, the game uses accelerometer tilt controls to control your vehicles. The graphics were sharp and it looked really nice when the phone was connected through its HDMI output to a huge projection screen.

Android gaming has fallen a bit off the radar, especially when compared to the iPhone. But it's because of releases like this that we know Android isn't giving up.
