    I would like that in a future software update or via an official app we can listen to our music while playing official games.
    If it can have these options it will be better:
    - Sound output only iPod
    - Sound output only app/game
    - Sound output mixed: with adjustable levels of sound for game and iPod.
    What do you guys think?

    I've found you can do the following as it is...

    Turn on vibrate. It will disable all sounds from apps (at least the ones I use).
    Set the double-tap on the iPhone to open the iPod thing and press play to stop the built in music and listen to whatever you had playing last.
    Use the clicker on the earbuds to star the iPod playing again, the music of the games stops, but sound effects still play, except if silent mode is on.

    I just play music out load when i am playing games on my touch, but some apps will let your music play at the same time as them
