The experiences are just utterly different and the 3DS/DS and PSP give more fulfilling experience since they're, well, dedicated gaming devices.

You should check out real racing 2, choas rings, GTA:CTW or even infinity blade. Sure there may be more casual games on a ipod but the convince of it makes up for it knowing theres hardcore games on it.
