I've been thinking about finally taking the plunge and getting an iPod touch. After I started looking into it, I learned that the 8GB model...the one that's within my budget...is 3rd gen in name only and contains the previous generation's hardware. It's the recent marketing thrust I've been seeing into games that attracted my attention in the first place. I've seen a relative playing games like N.O.V.A. and Need for Speed on his iPhone 3Gs and that piqued my interest. But seeing that the 8GB is 3rd gen in name only (a marketing decision that's leaving a sour taste in my mouth anyway), I'm wondering if it'd still be worth getting, or if I'd be getting a noticeably inferior experience on the 8GB model when it comes to the newer games that leverage beefier 3d content. Does anyone out there own a "3rd gen" ipod touch 8gb and have tried using it for games like N.O.V.A.? I'd like to hear some end-user thoughts.
