    Well I just beat Star Wars: The Force Unleashed and Spore (about a week ago) for my iPhone and while both games were fun to play they didn't last long enough. I know these are not meant to be console games, but they need to start making games that actually last at least a few hours. Does anyone know about any upcoming games that are going to last a while, with regards to solid gameplay?

    We need to wait

    4 mounts is still not enough also AppStore itself was only opened for 2 mounts

    If there will be more gameplay games, we need to wait first.

    Theres still lot of EA hits to come and also John Carmack (from id Software and creator of engine that most FPP hits is on) planning something good .

    Maybe you should check out Line Rider, that is cheap and it has tonnes of play time, as long as you are creative.

    I agree slightly but look at this!

    Appstore was open for a small time yet VERY nice apps are being created and ALOT of developers are taking intrest!

    Soon, more prominent developers will take inerest and then we will have REAL games on appstore.

    Umm what about Diner Dash, Vay, De Blob and the many other games out there.. Each have at least 5 hours of gameplay if not more. Maybe not Diner Dash, but still.

    You also have to think about the size of the games you are asking for... the iPod was designed for music and if you put on a game that's like 250 + mb... people are quickly gonna run out of space... maybe apple is planning to release the 64 gb touch for when REAL games come out

    It's actually now also being portrayed as the "funnest" gaming device so it's no longer just a phone in my opinion

    In terms of size, games are still incredibly small. Star Wars for example is only 20mb....Spore is 80mb. Those games could easily have been doubled in size and you would think in turn doubling the playing experience.
    Also, in terms of 250mb games, people have movies that are as big if not bigger than that, so I'm not sure that argument holds up. At the end of the day, it could at least be a choice we are given if we want to have such a big game on our device.

    But, I will admit that it is always possible of the 64gb Touch to come out when the REAL game comes out...and it may even be pre-installed on it already...who knows...
