    meh, not a WHOLE lot, but the 3G Will bring quite a bit.

    Teh new processor in the 3G supports OpenGL ES 2.0 wheras the 3G only supported something like 1.2. That means MUCH better looking games with support for things like multiple textures. The problem is, the versions arent compatible with each other. So if you have a game designed for use with OpenGL ES 1.2, you cant run it on the 3G, and the reverse is true as well. Games that look and run better, built for OpenGL ES 2.0, wont work on anything but the 3G.

    We'll have to see what app developers decide to do about that and if they start making apps specifically for use on the 3G.

    Yeah, and you don't really need wiFi to play in a WiFi game, the update gives the iPod Touch and iPhone BlueTooth so you can just search for device and play with no WiFi.
