No.. it really doesn't. Need the tactile feel of actual joystick/d-pad/buttons, cheers, and not covering up part of the screen with my own fingers.

"And you get to use proper buttons too.", Hmm, but a touch screen emulates a joystick pretty well imho. Anyway, getting my iPhone 3G S anyway within the week so this is a nice bit of news :)

The C64 never went away... and iPhones suck.

If you want an authentic experience and can't get hold of a real C64, get the C64 DTV, highly hackable back into the full machine!

That is pretty cool, not gonna lie. But I've learned in life that nostalgia only lasts for so long before you start hearing yourself say "I used to like this crap?!" XD

There's been emulators for C64 and a whole other load of systems available for other handheld devices like phones, PSPs and DS's for ages.  And you get to use proper buttons too.

Good news, is there for any other consoles too?
