This is no surprise really. With the iphone/ipod touch steam rolling into users pockets and the the ease of obtaining a new game (or app), it is obvious developers want to be noticed. I own a psp, a ds, and recently an ipod touch. Out of the 3, the ipod touch is always with me, and is where i game on the go. Apple, i think, has re-made portable gaming.

I agree with #1.  They have redefined portable gaming.  I’m hoping we can get some quality titles with outstanding control schemes like Socom or Mario Kart in the near future.
