iPhone Sets Guinness Records
In the 2011 Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition Apple stole a number of records from the clutches of Sony, and Nintendo.
The iPhone supplanted the Nintendo DS as the "Fastest-selling Portable Gaming System" selling 1.5million units during launch week. In comparison the PSP sold 200,000 during its first week, and the Nintendo DS sold 500,000 units.
The App Store also earned the title "Most Popular Application Marketplace." Guinness did note that out of the 260,00 apps available in the App Store, 61 are fart apps. My favorite being Fart Ocarina.
Angry Birds earned "Top Paid-For App Store Game in Most Countries" proving that birds with furrowed brows are awesome in more than American's minds. Tap Tap Revenge was named "Most Popular iPhone Game Series," and Plants vs. Zombines was named the "Fastest-Selling iPhone/iPod Strategy Game."
I do question the fairness of pitting these dedicated video game devices against a universally lauded after device like the iPhone. They are competitors in the gaming market, but they do fill very different niches.

Umm. The iPhone is not a "gaming system". Just because something has the ability to play games doesn't mean it should be classified as such. The primary functions of the iPhone are phone, Internet, and music.
I can play games on my my Motorola flip phone. Does that make it a gaming system to?

+1. Give me a psp over any iPhone/iPad/touch anyday of the week. As for ds/3ds give me an iPhone instead. Still it's not a game system

This is real news, but it shouldn't be. Lol

Who cares if it is a gaming system or if this is "real" news. It's a fact that all people related to the subject matter should find interesting.

Might as well call it the worlds fastest selling Calculator/GPS Device/Compass/Voice Recorder/Weather Forecaster/Calendar while you're at it.
iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch are no more gaming devices than the iPod Classic.

Jesus, the things people argue about on here. Who gives a toss whether it's a gaming system or not - it plays games and it's a phone. Jeez.
I thought it was an interesting story anyway.

The ability to play games through a multi-touch interface does not mean you have a gaming system. It just increases the ease of which you are able to play the games on the device. But it still has its shortfalls.
The iPhone is not a gaming system. PERIOD!

"Stankorola"? Graduate middle school, then try your hand at trash talking.

Whats the point in arguing? It won the records already, no amount of arguing is going to change that. A computer can be a gaming system even though it can do more than that. So who cares if the iPhone won records, I think it's pretty cool.

Man some of u are such assholes. I don't care if I get kicked off of here or not. I never comment on this stuff, I just read everything that is new every day. These topics that are written are for all of us. If this is what they want to write about then let them. U say give us real news, then go watch TV news. These guys give us news everyday on the apple products and some of u just keep them down on what they write about. Do us a favor and keep your comments to yourself if it's not something nice. I guarantee that everyone on here has learned something from every writer so when something doesn't interest u then wait for a new topic.
