    Unless you only use your ipod/phone for games, isn't that a waste?

    If they're 100 percent reusable, then that's pretty cool. I would be just as happy with an attachment that simply adds buttons whenever you feel like gaming (which I do a lot on my phone)

    Eh, don't really see the point. If I want a mobile gaming platform with buttons, I have other options. I just want good games that take advantage of the iPod's capabilities instead of trying to force me to use onscreen joysticks.

    Yeah, plus Apple patented an iPhone add-on with sticks and buttons a few months ago I believe, and if that comes out, it will invalidate any 3rd party offering I imagine.

    Yeah, I'd much rather have something like that. I tried Street Fighter 2 with that free Capcom arcade, and the touch works well, but I still prefer touch, and probably always will.
