iPod touch, maybe. I doubt for the iPhone. And not for a loooong while. Maybe in a couple generations.

I don't buy a DS or PSP, because I can't make any phone calls with them

I say LiveFire.

Sure, Modern Combat looks incredible, but I doubt itll last long. And when multiplayer hits, idk. I just dont trust Gameloft with the "Lasting Appeal" section of any game.

itouch is meant for mp3. More people use their music function on there than they do apps (I do anyway, that's just me). I originally bought it for my music, and then later on got sucked into the apps. So as far as people buying it for a specific app, no, at least not anytime soon.

It would probably have to be a really deep multiplayer game to draw enough interest for people to wanna buy an iphone just to play it. And I mean a really really good one, would have to be compareable to console quality.

The ability to play a multiplayer FPS anywhere will undoubtedly bring in at least convert* a couple hundred people to buy iPhones.

*I say convert because no one will buy an iPhone out of the blue, by convert I mean people who were debating Phone "X" and the iPhone would now choose iPhone.

what he probably means is that there is a bundle with those 2 games included. That's incentive to buy the system with those 2 good games included for free.
