Default the only thing prevent ios to be a gaming handheld

I would say only thing prevent iphone/itouch to be a valid gaming handheld is it's ridiculous tiny screen.
I played Paper Monsters and Crazy Hedgy on my itouch and it suprise me.
It works extremely well and so highly polished.
But for MC3, I can't really play it, if it has a screen as big as S3, it may be better. I'm not sure, but Note 2 should be really big enough.
I'd ever think touch control is a problem, and the huge screen of ipad just make people forget the problem to some extent instead of solve the problem.
But now I can say I was wrong, touch control is never a problem, I played Paper Monsters and Street Fighters on my touch and I never tap the wrong 'button' or wrong area, it feels so good and intuitive.

The only problem is the screen size of itouch is so tiny, it can't handle too much 'buttons' for a game like MC3.
but the games are alreay good enough to be a valid gaming handheld.
and somehow I may forget some what I want say in this post because a missionary interupt my thinking by knocking the door.
