    Hi,

    I've been thinking of getting an itouch for a while now and have held off for varying reasons.

    Im really only going to use it for games (already have a ds and psp)
    not even for music.

    do you think its a good enough machine, considering the games on it, for just games or am i going to use it a couple times and end up using the DS or something?

    No. I use it for games, but mostly music and productivity. Like Twitter, MLB At Bat, Facebook, and those apps that have a meaning to be there. I don't just game on my iPod, that's what the Computer or PS3 is for.

    Do not buy it just for the subpar collection of "games"

    The ipod touch was designed for music. To buy one just to play games on it would be a waste of money. There are a lot of fun games for it, but they're not good enough to justify spending $300 for it.

    If you only need it to play games then no.
    The reason is that the iPod's battery is less compatible for games and more compatible for simple applications / music / videos / Safari.

    for the games, no. you'd be disappointed. psp's way better. but like idk761, you might find other uses for it. it's quite a useful device to have!

    this is one of those "WTF?!" moments...

    Why buy an iPod Touch (which is used for MUSIC) for games? That doesn't make sense... really it doesn't... half the games that are on there you can get for other consoles and get a better experience...

    i dont believe you can purchase hero of sparta on the ds and the only thing similar would be god of war on the psp.
    i dont believe you can purchase games like ivampire etc on any other platform.

    ive got every console/portable for their exclusives and i dont like not being able to play a game because its on another platform. it annoys me.

    this doesnt have any exclusives worth getting at all in any shape or form?
