Do iPhone and iPod touch replace the need for a PSP/DSi?

Ever since the App store opened my PSP and DS lite havn't seen any love. I am wondering if anyone else has found their portable consoles neglected as they transition to the iDevice.

Are there any games worth keeping the PSP/DS for? I think mine might find their way to craigslist.

...but anyway might as well

Same with my PSP. Though I will keep it since it's perfect for long trips because the games are more in depth and keep me entertained a lot longer.

I love how quick people are to respond to threads with "wrong section" or "use the search." Wouldn't it be more appropriate to let the moderators do their job?

No. The DS will forever dominate the iPhone/iPod Touch in gaming. Period.

I personally feel really lazy and the opposite of thrifty when I own two portable current-gen systems. So, while the DS has some really awesome games, I'm loving that the iPhone is more flexible and useful, yet is getting competitive in that area.

Not so sure on that one though. I like the games on the DS but I'm more of a hardcore side and the PSP is more of a hardcore while the DS is for the more younger/older side and I believe the iphone is somewhere in the middle. Where's the maybe option on this poll >:[

the iphone/ipod touch is more for 10-15 minutes of playing but the ds and psp can keep someone entertained for much longer

No. I have both the DS/PSP/iPod touch for their own reasons. Though I carry around my iPod touch more since I'm on campus a lot of the time.

A follow up question..

What games in the App store do you feel compare to the quality of a game on the DS/PSP
