Having been a fan of portable gaming devices since the Mattel LED Football game (got the app, great nostalgia), I'm really excited about the touch. The downloadable game concept is fantastic, but with the rumors that Sony is about ready to open their PSP Store and the newly announced Nintendo DSi have downloadable capabilities, I'm not sure if the touch can compete. Having no tactile buttons, I think, is a major disadvantage. I've read about some device being worked on that envelopes the touch and provides a standard D-pad, A B buttons as well as shoulder buttons and I hope it turns out to be a great add-on. Also, I keep hearing the touch has Dreamcast quality graphics but I haven't seen that. Hopefully, the learning curve on getting to know the system is much shorter than usual.
