Nintendo won't get into phone business. And because iPhone is a phone, just about everyone will buy it. And then download cheap games for one dollar a piece.

Now Nintendo will have a system that can display 3D, something the iPhone won't be capable of at all. Because iPhone is just one big touch screen, and Apple won't leave that concept.

With other words, Nintendo now gives people a reason to spend 40 buck on their games, instead of only downloading cheap iPhone games.

Apple isn't a threat to Nintendo, though. You want quality games, you certainly aren't going to buy an iPhone for that.

The iPhone isn't even a real gaming handheld.

You can say that, but there's no denying that A LOT of people are downloading games on the iPhone instead of buying expensive games for the DS. With the iPhone they get both a phone and a games console.

Has anyone seen some of those high definition racing games on the iPad?

Yea, it's not "real" competition in the gamers eyes, but there is more to market share than people like us. If a mother can spend $6.99 and get something fun for her kids, she's going to.

I love Nintendo and all but iPhone will do some things better than 3DS, online being one of them.
