iPhone

Post by Carlos »

So my fiance got an iPhone last week, and I've been downloading a lot of old-school games to it like Pac-Man, Galaga, Wolfenstein 3D, and even the Hudson Shot Watch. It got me thinking though. With all the games and apps that are on or coming out for the iPhone, do you think that it will eventually become a viable platform for developers and eventually compete with the DS and PSP and other portable systems?

Hard to say really...how many people own an iPhone across the country?

I would certainly take an iTouch if offered (have no use for the phone) the touch screen and emulation possibility intrigues me....

I am a Verizon guy, and can't wait until we get an iPhone, if it ever happens.

I think cell phones need to come with a d-pad and some fire buttons to really be gamable. Whoever invents one is genius.
