With the recent hubbub over Apple's iPhone and iPod Touch
, many are wondering if it will threaten the market dominance that Nintendo enjoys with their DS handheld. Even though Forbes thinks Apple has a chance at dethroning the DS, we're realists
and know that just isn't possible. But, then the price point for iPhone games was revealed and we got a tad bit worried.
Sure, games sell the system, but the titles available on the iPhone and iPod Touch
will go for 17-18 Euros (which comes to about $25-$28, less than Nintendo's first-party titles), according to LemonQuest CEO Ignacio Cavero. It's not much, but it's something, and definitely a lot more noticeable when compared to Square Enix games, which often debut at a $34.99 price point. But, we could also see even cheaper
stuff, because Apple is leaving the final pricing up to the publishers.
What do you all think? Will price play a big role here? Or, are you waiting on some games before you jump to any conclusions?
