Yes I think it is, and IGN has some good points.

More than a 85,000 apps -- many of them games for a buck. Why that should have some publishers scared.

How many of those games make farting noises?

The Game.

Is it after 9PM EST? You should probably ignore the above post.

no, it isn't bad... most people buy the iPhone because is a very good smartphone, with an iPod, not because it plays games...

if I had one, I would still use my DSi just as much, 99% of the worthy handheld games are DS-exclusive anyways, and the App Store is filled with a lot of crapware anyway lol

I take it the iPod Touch is not the same as an iPhone.

it's an iPhone that can't connect to 3G networks lol... a phone-less iPhone... it's pretty much the same, and uses the same Apps as far as I know...

I think they are except for the phone added to the iPhone. I have an iPhone and I wanted to get some games, but the lack of a physical D pad hurts it for me. I don't like the on screen d pads in the lite versions I've downloaded.

The word "Gem" is overused.

I do agree, iPhone is bad for the gaming industry.

Then again, they said the same thing for the Wii, but look how succesful it became!

Comparing the Wii to the iPhone is like comparing a fish to a cow. You can eat both but that about it ;)

I dont think the iPhone is bad for gaming, but I do think its a great phone with the 3G Connectivity. Abitlity to play streaming internet vids. Awesome piece of tech in my opinion. PSP is now getting some of the better iPhone games and well DSi did too with Asphalt so actually its good for the market.

I have an iPhone and only download free games. There are some great games for free. With two gaming consoles (Wii and PS3) I don't think I would ever pay for a game on my iPhone. I don't think iPhones are bad for the industry at all.

If AT&T hadn't of bought out Cingular it would be so much better IMO. The phone service is a POS anymore. More dropped calls than ever now. Satelite radio has better reception (and yes I know, it's completely different types of antenas/satelites). Just looks like if satelite radio can send full service in my area so could a cell phone provider.

if anything it's making all the giant keep-turning-out-the-same-crap developers nervous...normally us ingenious indie developers can't get noticed due to the structure of the market, but now people are cranking out really polished 99 cent apps and making a decent penny doing so. Again, a substantial portion is crap--but come on, most of us are defending the Wii here and let's be honest.....there's a metric ton of garbage there too. No reason to ignore the quality releases.

@Swerd...... you said it perfectly. I like to see the small guys get there games to market and not have to bankrupt theirselves to try to do so.
