It seems Apple is getting more serious about pushing the iPhone as a gaming platform, if recent rumours are to be believed.

The company is said to be planning a "premium" games section in its App Store that will see games introduced at the $19.99 price point.

The site has no more details on timescale, nor official comment from either Apple or games publishers, but predicts a summer launch at Apple's Worldwide Developers Conference.
