Nintendo should make games for ios.

When I see the success of angry birds and the millions of dollars it has made it makes me think of how successful a mario game could do on the appstore. Not that angry birds and mario are alike but I could easily see mario topping angry birds. I know nintendo only makes games for its own systems but I think they could easily dominate the appstore if they wanted to. I also doubt it would detract from 3ds sales if they only release a very few number of games.

This I can actually agree on. If they released a bunch of classic games like the original Mario and Donkey Kong and stuff like that, they'd do insanely well, probably making hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash. Just the name would sell itself. But there's no way we can hope for anything but some classic mario or donkey kong type games...

I don't want a signature.

We can't hope for anything, period. Nintendo seems very adamant about not developing for mobile devices.

You can always hope mate . But nah, I don't expect anything within the next year or two for sure. After that I think we'll start to see at least a small attempt by nintendo on the app store, as they test the waters with something incredibly simple or something like that.

I wasn't saying that they might I said they should. It would be only beneficial for them imo.

If the stupid and selfish apple ever developed a controller for IOS device, then we'd probably already got some same quality mario rip-off or even better games.
I don't expect games from ninetendo personally, once I can get same fun from same quality games I don't care about the title that much.

Indefinitely agree. One game I feel could be VERY perfect for the iOS and worth a more premium price is a nicely done gyroscopic or hard controlled joy stick + buttons for moves.....(Drum roll ) MARIO KART. I mean seriously AND if they add multiplayer capabilities, even between within network/Bluetooth means, that would be awesome.
