Lol dedicated handheld games will never cost $5 retail or less. People should get the mobile phone market OUT of the picture when making comparisons.

So you're happy to pay more when you get less because...?

Yea, games like Mario 3D or perhaps Resident Evil Revelations can't be cheap. Monkey Ball though? The crap on the eShop?

$0.99-$4.99 iOS games suck. I wouldn't buy monkey ball ever on any platform but a game of OoT's caliber for example or other games like Mario, Metroid, MGS, Monster Hunter, etc are worth every bit of $40 for their level of polish.

Paying low prices = lower levels of polish, gameplay, craftsmanship in the product thus devaluing the medium as a whole. The day a full fledged Zelda game releases on a mobile device for $2.99 is the day gaming dies.

Monkeyball should cost about $29.99 at the least though as the devs have royalties and printing costs to cover and marketing it for 4 bucks would not be profitable.

Yea, I won't disagree. Except for the fact that the majority of the 3DS' currently library are iPhone games.
