Does the Ipod Touch feel abondoned to you?

You know that feeling you get when you buy a cool video game system then a week later a new one comes out and all the good developers from the old system abandon it for the new one?!
Since this ipad came out, All the good games are now going toward it.. can't the iPod touch get some of that too?
I really don't feel like spending like 500 bucks on the ipad just after spending 300 on my iPod...

What do you think?

not at all..i feel like my ipod touch has WAY MORE games on it and to look forward to then my ipad.

Games just arent really coming out right now because...well...why? Its almost summer, its not too HOT outside, and people have more things to do. Games will start to come out soon, dont worry.

I feel the complete opposite o__o
who's abandoned the iPhone? I don't feel that the iPad has many good new games, most of the existing ones are just upscaled iPhone versions, many don't have much new content, etc.

Cmon.. It's just the 1st generation!
Soon apple will make more generations until it's like 5x better hardware than the iPod
(but its just still going to be a giant iPod touch..)

Not at all. The iPhone/iPod Touch has so many new and exciting upcoming games, while the iPad is mainly getting optimized versions of iPhone games, mainly just with better graphics and no additional features/content.

Despite the slightly improved graphics ipad games are usually just ports of the iPhone game that have a few optimizations and fill the entire screen. some games benefit from the large screen but many others are just have awkward controls.

There isn't really any "good" games coming JUST to the ipad. The ipad isn't really a portable game console anyway, its built more more movies and web than games.

I don't agree. The iPod touch and iPhone are handheld portable devices that are easy to take with me on the go. The iPad on the other hand seems like a large device, with not much new features. Since it is fairly new, I don't think there are as much variety in apps yet.

And Apple will keep on improving the iPod/iPhone as well, the iPad isn't going to leave it behind.

But like I mentioned, what are all these good games that are only coming out for the iPad?
