DS(i) and PSP are not, Apple claims

 

Apple’s marketing executive, Greg Joswiak, claims that the iPhone and iPod Touch represent the future of gaming, dismissing serious players on the scene such as DS and PSP. Although he didn’t point a finger and name them, how many top-notch portable gaming devices do you see on the scene now?

Joswiak claims that these are more in the past, as iPhone is easy to carry, features a touch display and electronic distribution also significantly helps in forging the iPhone into a portable-gaming giant.
