Apple announced at WWDC that they sold over 40 million iPhones and iPod Touches to date. Not only is it a smartphone, but it has also became a gaming device that many prefer over other portable gaming consoles. Gizmodo has done some research and compared the sales of the iPhone and iPod Touch with other gaming consoles. The results are shown in the above image, and it really is amazing to see the iPhone and iPod Touch making more sales than the PS3 and Xbox 360.

Even though the iPhone has the distinct disadvantage of being a platform that's not purchased just for gaming—pretty much every person who buys a PSP buys it to play games, for example—it's still a pretty damn huge market. Combine this with the fact that the faster graphics support in the iPhone 3GS is going to make it a pretty damn good gaming device, you've got a juicy target for game developers to hit.
