i don't usually play on my click-wheel ipod any more, but I'm just curious if they are still making new games for it.

Probably, but I'm going to tell you no, since my company doesn't make games for that, and it takes sales from us. See, I have your best interest at heart!

Not as many as the Touch. Far, far, few. But I'm sure they're making new games (though I don't know who'd wanna play with a click wheel )

wrong actually. before i got an iPod Touch, i was totally, i mean TOTALLY addicted to a bunch of those games. The click wheel works as a sort of mini touch thingy.

no point now though, I'm just interested in whether they will continue with it.

True, depends on the game. Isn't there a spinny-breakout game that comes with the new nano? That actually works pretty well. But aside from racing games, board games, and game like Zuma, click wheels aren't that great of a control scheme.

they have asphalt 4 for the click wheel, i would think that would work pretty well if you use the click wheel like a steering wheel....
