All very valid points Primoz!

I do think, however, that the mobile market would just eat up Skyrim. Just look at XCom or Monster Hunter.

I still want to believe someday I'm going to play the masterpiece that Skyrim is while commuting on the bus!

I'd wager a lot that someday you will. There is just way too much money in this ecosystem for Bethesda not to come around someday. But it might take a few years for them to even start - I'm sure the A11 will be one heck of a chip

The xbox full install of skyrim is only 4gb. From a technical standpoint, given the CPU power of mobile devices, it's perfectly viable. Cut down texture resolution and compress music / audio and I'm sure skyrim can be done under 2gb.

The question is only this: Will Bethesda do it?
