So, exactly how is Microsoft dragged into this? With their chess game on the Zune? Unless of course you are insinuating that kids are dragging an Xbox and a T.V. with them to the park. Not that kids go outside anymore now a days...

I think the word you meant to use was recent.I write Mac only tutorials for the iPhone and own every model. My iPhones run on the following SIMs/networks: AT&T, GoPhone, H2O, O2, SimpleMobile, T-Mobile and Verizon.

Microsoft is winning the console wars with the older market, and now apple is winnin in my opinion with the portable wars with the iPhone/ipodtouch/ and even the iPad. I wouldn't say that apple is more of a threat to nintendo, than Microsoft, , they are both equally a huge threat, as long as nintendo keeps marketing to little kids and old people-.-

Things like this draw the focus away from your message and place it on the mechanics. I didn't read through the first paragraph. If you can't spell and use grammar properly then how can I expect you to get any of the facts correct in your article? Why should I bother to continue to read what you wrote? These are things my journalism instructor would've asked me. Typos in headlines? 50 point deduction. Ouch. Have someone else read your work if you can't find the mistakes yourself. I think article writers should be held to a higher standard than the typical moron l337 poster.

How can anyone over the age of 15 play a portable gaming console in public? My iPhone 4 is my phone so I have an excuse and I have it on me at all time. Anyway I am currently hooked to MC2 online and no PSP or DS game can beat that. Graphics are on par with PSP and controls are better than the DS for a FPS. And the online is better than even the Wii lol. I just hope there was voice chat so you could tell the damn n00bs not to go apesh*t on grenades.For **** sakes you mods are amateurs! Why are you trashing my scene!!! Seriously you and me we're done professionally.

Nintendo needs to do a much better downloadable game service on the 3DS. The more €3-€5 downloadable games the better. The price of retail games needs to be slashed considerably too. Plants V Zombies is coming to the DS, but it's not going to be 99c or even €5. If its a retail game it will more likely be €30+ which just cant be justified.
The iDevices will never be able to match the quality of a physical button controlled game, that's why all the best selling iDevice games are games like Angry Birds, Cut the Rope, Plants V Zombies.....simply controlled games that are essentially point and click (or point and tab)

Well I guess I don't need to respond to the atrocious grammar displayed in this article. I do wish that they made a base for iphone and ipod that actually had d-pad and buttons for gaming. The virtual d-pads just don't work for me.

Microsoft isn't even in the handheld market so why are they being compared? Also iPhone games are fun but until they offer classics lime Mario and Pokemon it really won't be a success in my eyes.

You know... MS Word has "grammar check" built in, right along side the "spell check."
Seriously, the quality of your writing will affect the quality of the article. Simple mistakes, that everyone can see, only prove that these are pushed out faster than they should be. The "blogosphere" is killing writing, because nobody cares enough to do any real fact-checking. They also have horrendous language skills.
There's no better way to look like you know what you're talking about than proper grammar and spelling. At least then people will focus on the facts, and not dedicate over fifty percent of the responses to the obvious mistakes within the article.
Who cares about grammar?It's not where you've been, or where you're going..
It's where you are.
Reflect on the past, plan for the future, mod for today.

The Wii has slain all consoles on the market, but their handheld devices are seriously lacking.

"but I don’t think you’ll ever see the Apple logo featured in a platform game, at least not officially."
^^ i hope that statement wasnt serious, after what apple has done.
they would be stupid not to get into games. Pfft never see an apple logo on a game.. are you kidding me?

This was a good read and enjoyed you guy's comments. I honestly don't think Apple needs a mascot to sell hardware or games. The name Apple does it alone, BUT Apple has a giant contributor that no one has mentioned
GameLoft has set the bar time after time with their iOS games. I need to buy their stock because they are on their way to being a powerhouse in gaming, period. Their games get better and better with each release. Heck, they have even pushed EA into making Madden better on iOS. Modern Combat almost looks like Call of Duty. They will continue making better games as idevices' hardware gets more powerful.
I honestly wonder how much GameLoft grosses each year? iOS gaming would be nothing without GameLoft because they push the platform with a huge variety of A quality, platform pushing games.
Well, I just answered my own question. They grossed about $170 million in 2009. Not bad for a software company that small. Their stock is only $6. Hmmmm

My gaming days go back to the NES (and some Atari too) and I would still play it to this day. I own an iPhone, iPod Touch, Nintendo gameboy color, a PSP, a PS2 and Xbox 360 and I love playing games on them all. My mood determines what game I want to play on what console. Yes, Apple has tons of game apps in the App store but that doesn't mean "ALL" previous platform gamers will jump sail. I haven't and I won't.

If your talking about lacking in features then you cant say the Wii has slain all consoles. And in regards the amount of Wii's sold I wouldn't say it has slain all other consoles, all the other consoles are doing fine and gaining numbers each month, whereas the Wii is seeing it's sales decline.
