    Seems like every portable phone player is getting into the gaming industry..this actually looks like a pretty nice screen/setup but between PSP/DS/and Iphone the market is saturated.

    While I can see that most of those are casual game titles, it’s nice that some are actually high-end games. I’m wondering if the quality is good enough, though… 🙂
