    I consider my touch to be an incredibly valid portable gaming device. Now, most people have the argument that games on the touch are just "time wasters". And, yes, they can be. But they also can be much more than that too! I mean, just tonight, I went out to dinner and spotted several people in numerous areas playing a game on their iPhone/touch. Some were playing online tap tap, Super Monkey Ball, some people were showing off their sweet moves in touch grind. This made me think... There's something in the air, and this is not a time waster. Not at all! This is a valid portable gaming device.

    So, here, I have put together a list of what I think are hot "console" titles for the touch. These are not good games that are time wasters. These are good games that you actually buy, sit, and play for a long time. Something you'd find on a PSP or a Nintendo DS. Now, before I start I must point out that I am not being bias. I have owned all of these systems. I sold my PSP and still currently have my DS and touch. So... With out further interruption, here is my list of "console" titles so far for the touch.

    Super Monkey Ball

    The Tap Tap Series

    de Blob

    Brain Challenge

    Crash Cart

    Asphalt 4

    Motochaser

    Enigmo

    Fieldrunners

    Brothers in Arms

    Hero of Sparta

    Rolando

    SimCity

    The Sims 3

    Need For Speed

    Amateur Surgeon

    Warfare Inc.

    Toy Bot

    Ferrari GT Evolution





    Did I forget something? Please tell and I will add it! Just please, don't say Cube... Its just not good enough. Its a port, and a demonstration. I will also be updating this list over time! Thanks!

    It's still more of a smartphone. If it was a gaming device, its graphics would be better than the PSP's, being a lot more powerful and all. The CPU of the iPhone/iTouch kicks the PSP's processor's ass by almost 200 mhz. It also has a better video card. It all comes down to development. The iPhone OS isn't meant to specifically play games like the PSP firmwares are. I'd consider this way when talking about hand held consoles...

    DS > iPhone > PSP

    PSP is still king (quality wise). The only problem with it is that Sony is horrible at advertising their awesome products, especially to third parties, we've seen this through the whole mini-disc ATRAC3 crap. UMDs are doing the same to the PSP. That's why there's so few great third party PSP games out there.
