That kinda sounds about right. I found that I use apps more than I would on a portable gaming system. That might just be me, but clearly, other people are doing the same thing. It's crazy how they can produce really good games on it. I wish my Android Epic had a selection other than Asphalt...

Actually, if you go to Gameloft.com on your Epic, it redirects you to a page of games dedicated to the epic by Gameloft. A HD Assassin's Creed, Dungeon Hunter HD, and a few others. You can download them and try them for free and purchase if you like the game. You won't find them on the Market, so you will need to make sure you enable the ability to install apps from unknown sources on your device.

Oh shit! Legit! Why aren't they found on the market though? I hope they have more from other companies as well. I kinda have most of them on my iPad because most went down to a dollar after being on Apple's store for so long. But anyways, thanks for the tip man.

Real gamers play emulator games on Android and plus playing those games on a tiny 3.5" display is sad.

Sony could stand a fighting chance if they'd integrate a current gen gaming handheld with a cell phone in my opinion. Not some piece of garbage like the N-Gage, but make it functional with their flagship model! If a PSP could make calls and text, you'd see a hell of a lot more of them! It's difficult to make a device with a design favorable for use as a phone and a gaming device, but that's what it's gonna take to succeed in todays market.

Well this is just stupid, the only reason it has that many is the fact that 90% of iPhone owners get bored and want something to pass the time, aka Games. More poeple are going to play games on there phones (any phone) becuase they bought there phone to use it as a phone, why not play a few games on a very important purchase. Now dsi and PSP are for real gamers. Real Gamers. You can't get Quality games on any phone like you could with the DS or PSP. They are cheap and mostly free, so of course more phone owners are going to play games on there device.
