Wha...? Resident Evil's coming to the iPhone? This is one scenario where I'd rather play it with amazing graphics on my 360

I think if Capcom ports Degeneration to iPhone, the controls would be annoying, even more so than RE5 or the ngage version. According to Pocket Gamer, this is an action game (like RE4 or RE5) so needs to controllable and i don't think it'd work very well on iPhone (don't even bother talking about BIA), but would like to be proved wrong.

Personally I think Capcom should port RE 1, 2 or 3 as the control scheme would work much better. Think about it - use the accelerometer to turn and have forward/back buttons in bottom left of the screen (similar to Payback). You could have another button for the gun, just include a simple lock on and its all good. I'd certainly pay $10 for ports of these classics!

Games I'm Playing: Jetpack Joyride, Infinity Blade 2, Batman, COD
Waiting For: Thunderbeam, Lostwinds, GTA3, Sonic CD

Wonder when this is coming out. Looks like Capcom is now looking into porting old videogames rather than making TV game shows.

That ngage footage looks shabby compared to the resident evil 4 mobile clip doing the rounds on youtube...

Personally I would prefer them to release this for the iphone if they could get the controls right...
