Will iPhone OS user buy DS2 and PSP2?

Since there are already some good games and there will come a lot more games to iPhone and iPod Touch I wonder if most iDevice users still will buy a Ds 2 or PSP 2 or even a Xbox Portable?

Eyo - I am tired of 99 mini games!

LIke the poll says I'd have to see them first, but yeah I probably will. Some games on the DS and PSP that you can't play on the iPod Touch and the DS2 and PSP2 will have those games as well.

As much as I love iGaming, conventional portables are much, much better. Give me buttons over touchscreen any day.

Well, considering that we know nothing about any of those, It's a hard question, but i'll consider them if the have these:

DS2: multitouch screen, more powerful, better internet access and more online features, an analog stick (only one NEEDED, two would be better)

PSP2: Bigger screen, longer battery life, disc AND download games, two analog sticks, no gimmicks

XBox Portable: Great connectivity (with 360), awesome battery, be able to play old xbox games (technically, not physically) and two analog sticks

Hi,

I voted no as I am not a big gamer.

The quality and price of the games on the Iphone/Ipod Touch works for me very well.

I'd definitely have to see them first. If they're powerful and have a great upcoming gaming library along with digital downloads and great online play, I'm down for it. The games on the iPod, while great, just don't satisfy me completely.

This is actually in the wrong section -- should be in general discussion. That said, if I'm going to spend $200+ on a new gaming system with $40+ games, it's going to be a PS3.
