    I should create a topic entitled "Searching".

    Because nobody does [it].

    Edit: To prevent an infraction (and simultaneously somewhat promote the lack of use of the search button), I'll tell you right away that it's because of computing power.

    How many buttons are on a n64 controller? Now imagine all those crammed into the iPod screen. Its already been talked about before it will not happen.

    my, my. not to flame but it looks like youve gotten an infraction before
    anyways, computing power means [[in layman's terms]] how powerful somthing can compute, or in this case, run games.
    a computer has varying computing power b/c u can upgrade it, but an iPod is static, you get what u get, no improvements unless u buy a new ipod.
    the computer can do it because ur computer is stronger in terms of computing than a Nintendo 64, an ipod isnt.
    also, a keyboard has about 70+ keys [[im not gonna count]] while an ipod has a couple of inches of space, not enough for the nintendo's stuff.
    u can buy a gamepad for your computer and play it there, but no n64 on ipod.

    The Nintendo 64 controller has 10 buttons, a joystick, and a directional pad. Since there would be no physical pad or joystick, the touch screen would have to read them as four additional buttons and 8 additional buttons respectively. This brings it to a total of 22 sensitive areas on a 3.5" screen. Granted, you might be able to fit those all on the screen if you tried really hard, but then you couldn't see anything because the screen would be covered by 1) Buttons and 2) Your fat thumbs.

    You might have tried to dispute this in your last post - something about, "u dont uses them all" but if you only had half the, "bottons," on there it would be pretty retarded since there would be games you just couldn't play. This would be stupid.
