Hopefully ....

I was reading an article that talks about the new PowerVR SBX chips which makes me hope that the next iPhone will be something extremely capable in terms of graphics and video.

An iPhone powered by this new PowerVR chip potentially could outperform the PSP by a margin and make it a true powerhouse.... Apple have publically stated their intention that the iPhone (and touch) is a gaming platform.

That's great news. The problem is, some people will still complain about the absent of control buttons and pads!

I wonder if Apple is thinking about that?

Personally, I don't really want to bring along extra accessories like the control buttons every time I go out!

That's why I bought the iPhone, anyway. An all-in-one features!
