:evil: + :lol:

But seriously, this is rage inducing because Nintendo is the king of handhelds,
and the ipod touch is NOT a gaming device. It's more of a hybrid. >_>

No, the laptop computer is the #1 portable gaming device.

Oh wait, the human hand is the #1 portable gaming device. It plays thumb war.

Just marketing spin. The ipod touch is an mp3 player. Yes it plays games. Yes it plays good games. But it's a multi-functioning device versus a device that only plays games. I could say the holy bible is the best selling doorstop of all time.

I highly doubt this, but I do most of my gaming on my iPod touch. There are alot of pick up and play titles and are cheaper :?

I only got an iPod Touch because I got it for free when I got my MacBook Pro. I pretty much use it as a flashlight and to play bejewled.

Nah, it's not a gaming device. Yes, it plays games, so it could be called a gaming device, but that's not the main intention. I mean, my cell phone plays games. Heck, my calculator plays games.

The only way I could see this as a legit statement is if Apple took a survey of the main reason people bought the product. They could give options like "Listen to Music", "Browse Internet", "Play games", etc. From there, they should take a percentage and apply it to the number of sales.

Shouldn't in reality be titled "iPod Touch Becomes #1 in which can be used as a Gaming Device in the World."

If I buy an ipod touch as a mp3 player but also download a game or two because I can doesn't make it the best selling portable gaming device. If all those people bought the iPod touch for portable gaming then I would grant that title.

The specs on the new iPod Touch's (and iPhone 4) beat almost every mobile device and when it comes to comparing it to other portable gaming devices (ds, psp) iPod Touch and iPhone 4 completely demolish them in every way..

I'm with you guys on wanting to call bullshit on it being a legitimate gaming device but when developers like Square Enix are making Apple Exclusive RPGS, what can we say to that? Its only gonna get bigger and better from here on out.

Thank you for the comment above. It is a real gaming powerhouse except for me it needs physical controls for lots of games. I've waited for a third party add on for the iPod touch and iPhone for so long and it's never come.

I love my ds, psp and iPhone for their different qualities but I'd find my iPhone available to pick up and play more often.

P.s. All junkware on the iPhone/ iPod should be disqualified to make those numbers more comparable.
