    As a casual gaming platform it has it's merits, i woudn't plan on using mine for extended mobile gaming though. Saying that, gaming on the move isn't something i'm that interested in, fps / rts on a ds? No ta. I'd rather stick with trism for 10min when im bored on the train..

    I think that sums up the casual nature of the games on the app store, i've not seen any games worth more than £2-3 tbh.

    the irony is that the Doom picture you put there is a game that requires a jailbroken iPhone. so i ask Apple, how on earth can any normal iPhone user play that game?

    they should have said "iPhone is the future of 5 minutes bite sized mobile gaming"

    i love game on my iphone, but i cannot stand its small screen for more than 10min, and i get finger cramps after 15min of playing games such as Doom shown above. good, bite sized games such as Brain Trainer and Hold'em are great examples of this over taking DS. but it'll never beat PSP in graphics and control

    i think they have an advantage over the other platforms, they can use a steam like system....

    The processor is far too weak to play anything much more intensive than a block-busting puzzle game without lag. :/

    The following two phrases hold about the same level of accuracy;

    "iPhone is the future of gaming"
    "The Atari Jaguar was a colossal success"

    Though I do love the accelerometer. Cube Runner is a great game for the iPhone.

    YMMV. I think the iPhone works well for gaming because it has all the basic prerequisites, a solid software distribution system, and the convenience of being not just a games machine: you are more likely to always have it with you.

    On the other hand anyone who casually dismisses the Nintendo DS or Sony PSP as really rather good gaming platforms obviously lacks credibility. I really like Apple's products and I'm not afraid to admit it, but even I can see how it is a matter of relative preferences at best.
