    iPhone's would be useless at my house because the only service provider here is Telstra, and you can only pick up Optus in my house. Optus offers Samsung Driods etc which would be great in my area because it's hilly.

    Oh and to all those who say that that the Iphone's IOS has better games..Well not for much longer..

    Meet PlayStation Suite.

    It's an official PlayStation platform for Android based devices that will allow users to legally play PlayStation One games on their device. Not only that it is also compatible with their next portable gaming system The PlayStation (code name) NGP. Wait there's more, not only that SCE (Sony) will provide a PS store that is open to game developers so they can make original games for the Android Operating System bearing the official PlayStation brand.


    And yes, there are already PSX emulators out there for Android and I think also for iOS, this is really a cross-platform, playform as even the new original games will work on the PlayStation NGP. So, check mate Apple. :p

    I play Dead Space, Infinity Blade and Real Racing 2 on my iPhone. The graphics are awesome with the Retina Display. I don't care about Android, Apple marketed it's product better.

    I'm terrified of my iPhone 4 right now because of Dead Space. The Necromorphs sends chills down my spine. In particular the ones with the blood sac, the sounds they make just horrify me.

    Yeah i'm man enough to say i got scared of an game on my phone.

    No PSOne games that were good? You have to be joking. Also, it's not just PSone games but PS Suite games also. Also, Capcom, Konami, and Namco have already been set to make games for Android and I assume they'd have no doubts about signing up for PS Suite too. All in all you're not just getting a PSone emulator but a completely new platform on which to play games.

    Think about it, Playstation games on tablets, on google tv, on android based mp3 players, etc. And yes Sony has confirmed they would like PS Suite on the Iphone but it's not very likely, as I really doubt they'd want to pay apple a fee and that they would want all of their products to go through the same rating approval system as they'd have their own. Having two for games would be.. madness. :lol:

    Horror on the phone/tablet = not scary.
    And Infinity Blade, despite good graphics, is just on-rail across-the-screen-finger-sliding and kind of boring game.

    P.S. Silent Hill, Metal Gear Solid, Tekken 1-3, Medal Of Honor, Castlevania: Symphony of the Night - just to name some really good, if not great, PS One games.

    No, I haven't.
    And I will not.
    I've played some "kind of scary" games on my HTC... and I wasn't scared.
    Then I saw gameplay footage from iPhone/Pad Dead Space... and it didn't scare me either. It was meh for me.
    Small screen can't provide total immersion into the game world (maybe it's just me).
    And, just to clarify, there was only two games that made me sleepless at night. Silent Hill 2 and 3.

    If the PS Suite gets Spyro, I might have to reconsider...but as a complete anti-apple person I must say...

    I got the iPhone 4 in early August, and I must say it's great. The camera is good, I have awesome easy photo-editing software, a few addicting but not time-consuming games (Robot Unicorn, Words w/ Friends) and an iPod all in one? It has plenty of storage, it's easy to snap a pic, edit, and upload it to facebook.

    I've got my Bible on hand, I have no excuse not to read every night, I can bookmark my favorite verses (because my handwriting is aweful).

    Same with the Calender and Notes, everything's in my pocket, and so easily integrated, I hate 'Socialism', but dang Apple works this closed ecosystem thing quite well.

    I would say Android for getting better coverage.

    As for iPhone, the quality and control is fairly well, just it's hard to find a place with good enough Wi-fi to keep it going.

    I agree, I'm not.
    But still, my opinion is that serious games need bigger screens for greater involvement of a player.
    Games like Angry Birds or Cut The Rope on phones are fine, but not stuff like Dead Space.
    Dead Space must be played on PS3/XBox 360/PC at night with good headphones (but I think you know that judging by avatar))
