    Hello

    The other night a TV show here in the UK had a comparison of hand held games machines which the iPod Touch actually won beating both the PSP and DSi.

    The game they were playing on the ipod looked like a Call Of Duty type game but I missed what they said it was called.

    Anyone got any ideas?

    I've looked on the Apps Store but couldn't see anything.

    Thanks

    are you talking about the gadget show? if so, it was brothers in arms

    btw for anyone that's interested they rated the iPod touch / iPhone as a better console than both dsi and psp!

    Not really surprising! There hasn't been a good PSP game released in years, and the entire purpose of the DSi is to bilk gamers in to buying retro titles again. Unless you can import your Wii virtual console purchases, what a massive money grab by Nintendo.

    Yeah few and far between he means. You can nab a good PSP game once ever 6-8 months rather than 5+ a month for DS and iPhone.

    Anyways as much as I like the iPhone I just don't see it better than the DS and PSP quite yet as a dedicated gaming platform. It certainly is getting sweet titles but nothing as big or as full of a game quite yet, but those games take a long time to make.

    honestly im very skeptical that the ipod beat a PSP and DSi, i have a gameinformer magizine that says the DSi has the best graphics of any handheld (iPod included) maybe they were using a prototype?
    *on topic probably brothers in arms

    The DSi has the same graphics as the previous DS models with the exception of having slightly larger screens.

    I don't think the iPhone is a DS/PSP beater yet in terms of the games available but titles like Lets Golf! and Rolando are closing the gap extremely quickly. I'm confident it's only a matter of time.

    The only thing is Lets Golf! is already on the PSP in the form of Hot Shots Golf and Rolando is also found on PSP which is called Loco Roco. Heck even the stellar Hero of Sparta is nothing other than God of War.

    Now saying this I love those games on the iPhone but in order for it to get past the DS/PSP as a better handheld gaming system it needs to have it's own IPs

    From what my brother was saying the iPhone/iTouch won mainly because of it's other features, esepcially if they were using the iPhone then there is the whole added extra of true on the go MMO's like Watchmen.

    Many developers have been attracted to the iPhone for it's ability to create new social revolutions, for example in the iPhone 3.0 preview presentation Apple called on the developers of Orcania to show off their new app using the 3.0 SDK and they pointed out that the iPhone can create these new social crazes, such as Orcania.

    I also find I play more games on my iTouch compared to my DS or PSP because the apps are usually made with knowledge that users may open the app use it for a few minutes then quit, the PSP or DS on the other hand have the idea the user will be on for as long as possible. Plus the iTouch is easier to carry around and can do everything a PSP does - music, video, games, internet plus I can whack on other apps that can help me socialise or be productive in some way.

    I know we are getting rather off topic and all but I do agree with this as it does seem the iPhone is pretty much becoming what the PSP wanted to be in the first place.

    People really need to STOP directly comparing a product in the mobile market with those in the portable game system market. They are separate markets.

    It's like comparing home consoles vs. PC.

    Sure, you could do that, but, honestly...you can't directly compare them. None of the sales analysts do that, no one in the industry does it, etc. Why? Because video game home consoles and PCs have ALWAYS been considered wholly separate markets. Why? Because video game home consoles are dedicated game devices. PCs can play games, sure, but they are NOT dedicated game devices but rather a viable platform for games in addition to the other software they can run. That's the key difference between game systems and PCs.

    Same deal with portable game systems (DS, PSP) and platforms in the mobile market (like iTouch/Phone). Honestly, iTouch/Phone is much more in competition directly with other mobile platforms like Android, BREW and nGage than it is the dedicated game systems. The latter was meant to play games above all else, the former meant to run a variety of things. The markets are different, the consumer base is different, the desires of that consumer base different, and the viewpoint of the developers are different.

    It's different. Let's judge it on what it is rather than what it isn't. :)

    but industry people do put the iPhone in with the PSP and DS. It's not just us gamers. Much like the 360 and PS3 are trying to become multimedia in an attempt to take on the PC/Home Theater arena.

    You're right on that point, but I also think it does a disservice to the iPhone. At this point, it's still really a mobile device with limitations that PSP and DS don't have such as limited battery life, and graphics that while great for a mobile device well are still for a mobile device. As the device matures, it will probably be a more fair assessment. Industry people like to lump things together because it's easy, but platform differences are still very apparent.

    Unless that thing is whipping them in the behind ;) Like how the Wii isn't a competitor with the PS3 and 360 :D

    Though, yes, I hear you on the fact that the iPhone is still very much a mobile device that happens to play games (some very good games at that) It's a Catch 22 that the iPhone gets clumped in with the PSP and DS. Good for the reason that people find it can hold its own with dedicated machines, bad because as you pointed out it has some limitations when put side by side with them.
