AC: Bloodlines on iPhone/iPod touch possible?

I've been thinking of this for quite awhile...

After finishing AC: Bloodlines on the PSP despite the dreaded camera controls I can't help but imagining it getting ported to the iDevices. Yes iDevices may not have physical buttons and such, however camera controls on the PSP can be solved easily via tap and drag on the iDevices.

I reckon some of the physical buttons can be mapped to multi-touch gesture inputs, coupled with some on screen virtual buttons of course.

Graphical capability wise I think the latest generation of iDevices may be able to handle it pretty well... thoughts?

Well, considering the entire PSP game weighs in at only 530 MB it surely could be ported to the iPhone however the controls would have to be revamped.
Remember, Myst for the iPhone weighs in at 533 MB.
Completely doable however it would be up to the license holder to do so.

Sorry for the wrong thread section as I thought I was on the game discussion section =/

So would you guys think it's a good idea to bring this game to the iDevices?

Besides the somewhat plain surroundings, poor AI and camera controls, it's quite like a dumbed down portable experience of the original AC from the consoles.

Not too shabby, but not too good either.

they won't port it over due to the small amount of return they would get on the iphone. it sells for >$40 for DS and psp, while no games on the app store cost more then 9.99
