A big part of Apple's presentation today was focused on portable gaming on the iPhone and iPod Touch. A challenge has been issued to Nintendo and Sony. Apple CEO Steve Jobs said that the iPod Touch (and by extension, the iPhone), is "the best portable device for playing games."

The best? Sure, we love some of the iPhone/Touch games we've played, but they still don't match up to the Nintendo DS and PSP. At least, not yet.

Spore Origins was shown off at Apple's event and looks great, but is still a limited game when compared to the full version of Spore or other titles on the DS or PSP. Don't expect to see too many epic RPG's or classic franchises on the iPhone.

Another game, Real Soccer 2009, was shown off and is available for purchase today. Certainly something that should impress the international crowd, but you'll have to come up with something better than soccer for the US, Apple.

What do you think? Would you ever give up your PSP or DS for an iPod Touch or would you do what we do and just carry both?
