Honestly why are people saying don't get an iPhone if someone [I]seriously[/I] wants to get a phone just/mostly for gaming? You'd be stupid to suggest anything android just because let's face it - 90% of game developers make for iOS only. It's shit, yes we know. But you can't deny that your games will be much more limited on Android compaired to iOS. Stuff like infinity blade, that new mass effect game, dead space, and the new title in development from Crytek are all only iOS. The best you get with Android is something like wipeout and the occasional TegraZone game that comes out (if you have a Tegra device). No tegra? Well, you'll be stuck with stuff like Angry Birds. whihc isn't bad, but if you go "YEAH GAME PHONE" you'll be seriously underwhelmed from amything on the Android front.

I still have yet to try that. [editline]10th March 2012[/editline] Somebody should make a thin little gamepad for smartphones that could fit into a small laptop bag. Maybe it could have something like the analogue nubs on the PS VITA. Something like this. [img]http://dl.dropbox.com/u/7333627/controller.png[/img]

There's a couple more on the market, but I can't remember the names of those.
I know about that but seriously, $55 USD?! [editline]10th March 2012[/editline] You can get a high quality Logitech PC gamepad for [del]half that[/del] a quarter of that.

Only thing Android has over it is the fact you can use a PS3 pad. The tegra part isn't true however, as you can use chainfire 3d and pretty much get tegra games on any good phone.

That's what's making 'em pricey, that and lack of demand.
[QUOTE=SGTNAPALM;35079024]emulators[/QUOTE] Ah that's true, emulation on Android is pretty strong. Honestly though, I don't know many people who do that sort of thing or would like to. If you're the average phone-gamer then usually you're not the type to wish you could play X N64 or GBA game from 10 years ago right now on your phone. If you love emulation though and revisiting mobile classics without wanting to bring your DS/etc everywhere (or wanting to play N64), then Android is excellent for that.

Search Andropad or Andropad 2.
I'd recommend the iPhone (as an iPod Touch user) because there is a huge variety of games available and definitely many gems in the mix. Can't comment on Android because I've never used an Android phone before. Of course you did say it was over expensive (indeed it is), but you may be able to get one relatively cheaply with a plan with some providers. [editline]11 March 2012[/editline] Instead, why don't you just buy a PS Vita for gaming, and a cheap phone to accompany it if you do need a phone for the actual phone functionalities? Sure, it's two devices to carry around but the gaming would be better, and you'd have a phone that wouldn't have its battery die on you in a few hours.

I have an Xperia Play and I find it pretty decent, emulating old games work fine but with the touchpads as the joysticks, it'll be a bitch though. It's like playing a game with 2 laptop touchpads.
It's been made It's called the iControl pad [editline]11th March 2012[/editline] FUCK DAMMIT MISSED A PAGE
My upgrade is due in April. I'm looking for the best Android At&t has to offer in the US. Any Ideas? Leaning toward GS II/GS II Skyrocket, or the Galaxy Nexus.
I think you should wait for a a couple of month and get the GS3
[QUOTE=B!N4RY;35101068]I think you should wait for a a couple of month and get the GS3[/QUOTE] If it's the same situation as the Galaxy S II was it'll be more than a couple of months. And if that happens when it arrives it'll likely be custom carrier editions that never get updates and have different -and in some cases inferior- hardware configurations.
