    Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled a commercial for the iPod Touch touting it’s “the best portable device for playing games,”

    Seems like nintendo's NDS and Sony's PSP are going to have a new competitor.

    No they're not because Nintendo and Sony aren't Phail companies like apple.

    Apple thinks they're the best. They have a higher ego than me. They'll never beat Nintendo, the handheld juggernaut.

    I know your not but I bet Apple does because they have giant Egos.
    Oh wait did I forget to mention that?

    *Looks at topic*
    Oh I get how your getting that.

    On the other hand Apple could turn into a Google (or are they already?) and try to make a monopoly in the media industry.

    I believe that no matter the case Sony, Nintendo, and the consumers won't consider the iPod and iPhone as gaming devices as they aren't they're media devices. *cough n-gage (I think?)*

    There won't be any competition.

    A portable gaming console without actual buttons will fail. Motion control isn't good enough yet

    Yep. Even a phone w/o buttons is a f-king driving hazard rather than an "intuitive" design. Bottom line is that Apple feed on primarily US retards who are too lazy to do ANYTHING for themselves and thus embrace Apple's sht left and right. I don't need to know computer folders to play music? Great! I have to BUY songs and videos? Great! etc.

    N-gage is now what it should've been imo- an official app for N and other series Nokia phones. As a primary device it was rather fail, but as an app with, what, slightly better-than-java games its alright. Just more hassle getting ready to play a game than getting a better experience IMO.
