    Just because your MP3 player can download games, does not make it a portable game player. It's no more a portable game player then a travel set of chess is.

    Also, Kleenex combined with Brawny paper towels are the number one selling guitars.

    Actually it is considered a gaming device. There are a bunch real full story games on this so how is it not considered a gaming device.

    Technically, it's a multimedia device, not a gaming device.
    This is due mostly to the fact that its main purpose is not gaming.

    Because you didn't put a question mark I didn't think it was a question at first, but I'll answer it anyway: if a system was designed to be a PMP, it is a PMP. The iPod is nothing more than a music player with some extra functions (that aren't all that special).

    Sure, there are quite a lot of 'games' on it, with stories and all, but that still doesn't make it a true gaming device. It is intended to play music and that's it.

    When Apple start making (decent) games, it'll be a gaming device.

    Until then, I'll stick with Nintendo.

    It's not a gaming device.

    If that's the case then every cell phone on this planet is a gaming device too.

    Oh and PDAs. And graphic calculators. Get the picture Apple?

    Arrogant ass, hahaha #1 game player my ass. He's so out of his mind. 50% market share worldwide, of the gaming market...no, just no. Wow 1.5mil games and entertainment items in the last year. Hell I've seen Nintendo broadcast doing that worldwide alone on just Pokemon. Fuck you Jobs.

    Nintendo should start designing things as well as Apple does (the 3DS is fugly).

    What the hell are you talking about.

    Apple do not make the games. They are all made by other people, then published by Apple on the App Store.

    Also not a fan of the design, but as long as it works and is more sturdy than the Lite, I love it.

    Why do you think I don't have an Ipod Touch? Its not the fact I can't afford it, its also the fact its a multi portable device, a MPD. My G1 right now is a smartphone with almost the same features like the Ipod Touch. It doesn't have a headset jack, the music isn't crisp nor audible. The game selection from the app is far in between. I just bought a app for 3.99 (2 dollars more for stupid reasons, legal action stuff) it works how albeit slow. Gameboid is the name, I'm Golden Sun on there.

    I actually kind of like it [​IMG] and TBH, I think some of Apple's newer products are pretty fugly. The new shuffle and nano, for example.)

    ____QUICK EDIT_____________________
    Oh, and I was just on the Nintendo website,clicked a link that led to Ninty's E3 network, and was looking at the 3DS specs, the design of the 3DS is TBA, so it might not be the final look.

    I don't know if it's due to my past roots of being a complete Nintendo fangirl, but I really don't mind the way that the 3DS looks. I actually think it's pretty cool. While I don't mind the general appearance, though, I feel as if it;s going to take quite some getting used to considering the fact that it has new features and the idea of it is just woah. I can't believe they're making it. To see that now and compare them to 8-bit graphics, there's no comparison!

    I like the 3DS design.

    Also, I agree the iPhone/iPod isn't a game device, but it does have some fun little games.

    My point exactly.

    I'll stick to Nintendo devices as Nintendo actually know how to make a good game.
