I don't know how they would ever be able to get any of the games running with a decent frame rate. Multiplayer would be out for sure.

Yeah, I'm hoping the people there are pretty smart. It would be amazing if they could pull this off. Although I highly doubt that it will. I mean they would have to redo the whole game to make it iPhone combatible graphics wise, then they would have to get the controls to work good, and there to be a decent frame rate.

Just did a quick web search and found this.

Interesting, to say the least.

If I understand it correctly, we're talking about a set of developer tools here -- short cut of sorts, and not some magic XBox emulator.

well first of all, its literally impossible due to 3 reasons

1 - hardware is not capable of anything even remotely close to it. it struggles running N64 and cant if there was an xb1 emulator for iphone it wouldt even get a 0.1fps out of an xbox 1 game

2 - licences. needs licences for every single ported game meaning millions of dollars. and then theres microsoft who would not let them port their games to another competitor, especially apple (tho thats probably questionable, who knows MS's intentions?)

3 - i forgot what i was going to say

IF this was going to happen then its simply going to be a program that converts some files such as skins/clothing/textures into an iphone format and then the rest would have to be made from scratch


a complete port is just not possible, anyway you look at it


edit: unless their talking about UNO on xbox live arcade..

I don't think it's impossible but it's improbable.
EDIT: Nevermind it is impossible.

It's not impossible. Just the technology hasn't caught up yet to do that at an affordable pricing. Titles from the 360 to the Iphone is very plausible, you'd just need some of the game developers to reformat it to fit the Iphone and Ipod best.
