How much money would you pay for a mobile console game?

I am curious to see what people would pay for a console title on the iPhone. I hope that devs look at this poll (if the results are on the high end) and decide that the market should be raised in price. I'm dying to see games like Gears of War, Red Dead Redemption, Infamous, etc. on the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad. Maybe if a lot of people are willing to pay more and developers know it, we won't have to buy the NGP by Playstation, because we will be able to play the same games and more (ahem, Xbox 360) on our Apple devices. Please vote on this poll and you may make a change in mobile gaming!

This, but I may be willing to pay higher for a completely original console-quality game (not clones, but original titles in a console franchise).

Actually I think it is good enough, as games like Dead Space and Infinity Blade have proved. The only problem is open-world games might not work yet, as proved by Aralon (way too buggy IMO).

And BTW for anyone who's wondering, they don't just have to be ports from consoles, they can be original too.

$30-$40 would probably be the most I'd pay. It's funny how I've bought $1 iPhone games which have been better than some PSP games I've bought for £39.99 ($65).

Would you pay more than 20 for a DS or PSP game? Neither device has hardware good enough "to actually give us a console quality game," either.

I have never paid more than twenty dollars for a portable game console game, and I don't plan to. As for the poll, I won't go over 10 bucks for a game I don't have a hard copy of.

LOL the devs got rid of the 'Important Poll' from the title. I guess they just want to have half ass games forever.
