I've spent close to $400 on games alone, and that's about 8 next-gen games, but in proportion I've played it A LOT more than the NES, SNES, Gamecube, Wii, PS3, PS2, XBOX, XBOX 360, Gameboy, GBA, and DS that I own/have owned. In sheer number of hours I've played the DS more but I've owned one for three years. Yesterday I had the Touch and the DS with me and I played the DS 10 minutes and the Touch 5 hours or so. Gaming goodness. There are SO many apps for a buck that have hours and hours of replayability. For me it's the best gaming machine out there. The battery life is another story. Whenever I play mine it's always plugged in somewhere.
