In a post-mobile games market, how can you effective launch and market such a Title?

NOTE: This is the 'mobile' version, but it gives a nice insight into what the iPhone version will be like:

Is this going to be one of the premium $19.99 games?

SOLD!

There hasn't been any news about this in a while. I thought they gave up on it. I'm sure it'll be in the rumored $19.99 section.

I wouldn't get too excited, it sounds like they're just talking about the development of the existing mobile Bioshock. Also, it's uncommon for games to be announced at GDC, it just gives developers time to talk about the making of their games.

They said months ago that they were porting it to the iPhone. This is the first news about it I've seen since then.

I didn't mean that it won't ever come out, I just don't think GDC would be the place to announce it. If they do however, Ill buy it in a heart beat, even if it is $20.
