iPhone – The DS/PSP Killer?

The buzz over Apple's (AAPL) iPhone as a potential gaming platform has yet to subside.

The concept is cool for people that already own an iPhone but, I'm not going to run out and drop 500 just to play a handheld. I can get a PSP and a DS for less then that. The PSP has some of the functionality of an iPhone too since it connects to the PS3 and has a browser. To top it off, I don't have to pay 100 bucks a month to have a phone with internet capabilities and games.

All in all ... not worth it.

However, if they make something like an iTouch but with gaming functionality, that might work. Still ... it's a little bit on the pricey side. Especially since the PSP can stream media from my PS3 when connected at an internet hot spot.

Actuly its $400 dollers now.

And its only 40 a month.

But, yeah, No.

There shall be no killing among nothing. DS/PSP are awesome and offers a lot for their asking price. iPhone is great piece of tech but its asking price is a bit steep for the average joe. They can all exist in the same market and nothing is going to change.

I don't think it would be very practical. I could see gaming being popular on the iphone but i don't see the core group of gamers that currently are buying the ds/psp paying $500 + monthly fees. plus people like buttons...
