OS 3.0... Worth it for iPod touch users?

As well as having to pay $9.99 for it, iPod touch users can't use many of the features and all of us will have to wait a bit until 3.0 is fully utilized with apps such as killtest/livefire and sims 3.

So is this worth it or just a great scam by Apple...

You will have to sooner or later. Once devs release 3.0 only games like Touchgrind and Vans SK8, it's pretty much unavoidable.

I upgraded my Ipod Touch because I have a feeling that many of the new game releases will require it.

I really don't see the excitement over it for ipod touch users. It takes up space, the push features I'd say most people will keep off because of battery life and not being all that important, I certainly will, and all the other main features are just a bunch of more ways to shell out money. I just don't see a reason to spend $10 on this. Am I alone here?

Does OS 3.0 allow better organization of my games?

Hey Knowers of OS 3.0,

Will OS 3.0 allow anything like either folders or the ability to break the arbitrary 9 page limit? I have way too many games and hat having to uninstall rarely used games that I might still once in a Blue Moon get back to and would not want to have to "re-unlock" all of the bonus content and achievements I'd already earned.

So do any of the new OS 3.0 features address this kind of stuff?

No. I feel spotlight and shake to change song are great additions but I don't see the others being of use. It is 9.99!
