Speaking in his GDC Mobile keynote, ngmoco co-founder Neil Young has said that iPhone is the “most important device” he’s owned.

Young called the phone “better than the DS, better than the PSP,” because it’s “always on, always with you,” and, “most importantly from a business standpoint, there were no first-party games.”

He added: “”Don’t let the haters tell you it sucks compared to the DS or the PSP. It doesn’t. It’s good. It’s clear that the quality of iPhone games is eclipsing its [portable] console counterparts, and that’s even more acute when you compare it against the prior generation.”
