Games on Smartphones ? I'm totaly out of it because...I don't have a smartphone ! And I don't know if I'll ever had one...Like Vistablade, I refuse to play games on my smartphone..but wait...I just tell that I don't have one ! :lol:
Noeven if one day I'll buy one, I'll not play games on it.
I'll continue to buy handhelds consoles and play games like this :)

I actually just got my first smartphone about 3 months ago. I like it, but it just doesn't feel right playing games on it to me. So I don't.

This. I've tried a few smartphone games, but none of them grabbed me or were particularly interesting. Plus, the paywalls. Oh, the paywalls.

My issue with smartphone gaming is the absence of traditional controls and how they drain the battery. I have played a few games in my smartphones, but the only games I had some fun with were those games made specifically for phones, like Angry Birds and such. I have tried some "hardcore" games in my phone, but they drain the battery so quickly that it is impossible to play more than 20 minutes.

Yeah my phone usually lasts me 2-3 days on 1 full battery charge, but it will die in 2 hours or less if I'm gaming on it.

The battery consumption is one of the worst lacks while playing games on Smartphones...with all the wifi and internet connections and all the apps using, it's logical (but I'm sure that the smartphone itself is consuming a lot of the power...)

And about the controllers, it's the same problem : some good directionnal paddle or joystick or buttons are so great :)

Here's an interesting update on this whole "Nintendo making smartphone games" line of thinking. According to the above article, Iwata says that they have no plans to bring Mario and "key franchises" to smart phones because it would cut into 3DS sales.

Did anyone else catch what he did there? He said "key franchises" more than likely consisting of Zelda, Mario, etc.. However, he doesn't specify, and this means that they could throw any amount of resources into smartphone gaming that they see fit. Meaning new IPs, or lesser know IPs could be seen on smartphones.

Maybe I'm just being over paranoid, who knows.

Oh no ! I hope it will not come to reality, this Smartphone stuff ! :( We'll see later but maybe you're right...by reading this article, it's not very clear ! But I hope that the 3DS isn't going to be "cut" by these smartphone games..
