I hate apple. The so-called "iDevices" are not proprietary game consoles though. They are multitasking phone/scheduler/mp3 players that also play games.

When I talk about consoles, I do not mention that my cell phone can play Bejeweled. It's not really the same level of gameplay.

If all games, casual and series games, are lumped into one category, then cell phones would likely win. They are not bought specifically for playing games as consoles are.

Exactly, Grindspine. That's why I really wouldn't say they are "attacking Nintendos profit". Until gamers start using their phones over their DS's, or phones start playing DS games, they have nothing to worry about.
