Halo 1 or 2 port

Since gta3 has been ported to iOS and looks promising, does anyone else think its possible for a halo 1/2 port? Ive heard of a max payne port coming in early 2012.

Waiting on: Battlefield 3 Aftershock, Real Racing 3, Mass Effect 3. NOVA 3

Possible? Yes. Likely? No.

It is a Microsoft flagship IP. Unlikely to make it's way to iOS any time soon, if ever.

Games I have beta tested: Minigore, Cogs, Guerilla Bob, Above and Beyond: Air Combat, Baseball Superstars 2010, 33rd Division, Cash Machine, 5 star General, Flick Football... Possibly some other ones I;ve forgotten

Well, there is a Mac version of Halo 1...

Frankly, I never expected Microsoft to port Kinectimals to iOS (talk about flagship IP -- there's even a Microsoft product in the name!). Before that I would have agreed with you, but now, I think all bets are off. Not saying it's going to happen, but it just doesn't strike me as impossible anymore.

Yeah, that's the thing that would make me believe an iOS port, but I still don't see it happening.
I think Microsoft is trying to raise product awareness, and sort of change it's image. Right now, when I show my Windows Phone to people, half of the time their eyes glaze over the instant they hear the word 'Windows' (which is NOT reasonable).
I just think Microsoft wants to change this mindset. At least, that's the only suggestion I have as to why they've ported Kinectimals, Skydrive and an Xbox Live app to iOS. It's a bit of an odd business strategy.

I would be less doubtful of a port if an official mobile port of Halo was available anywhere, but as of now, there is no mobile port. If a WP7 port was made, I wouldn't be as surprised if an iOS version followed soon after.
