The "Fable" Series Should Come to the iPhone/iPad

Since Fable III:Kingmaker came onto the App store, I was thinking "Hey, Why can't the Main Fable games come to iOS devices aswell?"

It would start with a Remake of the Original Fable on the iPhone 5/iPad 2...Or, hell, Maybe even the iPhone 6/iPad 3 for Far better Results (When they both come out anyway).

Anyway, after that's done, We should start to see Fable II, III and possibly IV (By then), hit the Appstore.

where is this Fable App? I can't seem to find it. Did it just get released? As cool as it would be to have the Fable games on the iPhone I just don't know if it's possible. They are massive games. Not saying it isn't possible but maybe on another new iphone hardware model.

It's Gone now, It was a Promotion for Fable III.
And you forget that on the iPad 1, there are practically MMOs and Other Very large games on there.

the iPad 2 Also has 9x Better Graphics capabilities, so it is very much possible.

this could be done on the ipad 2 and iphone 5, as fable 1 wasnt even that big when you think about it, i dont know about fable 2 as even though it wasnt that big IMO it would still be quite hard and TBH i never played fable 3 as i sold my xbox by then

Ever heard of "Capital Letters?".

Anyway, It wouldn't be as hard as you might think.
Fable 2 Wasn't TOO Large, and it isn't that Graphically Detailed, So it is Definatley possible.

Fable 3 may be Possible aswell, Don't underestimate iPad 2/iPhone 5's Hardware.

Money. They won't make enough to justify the investment in time and money. Most multi-platform developers don't want to sell off full fledged renditions of their AAA properties for 6.99. EA will do it. Most won't. Most developers would hesitate trying to sell these games on the iOS marketplace for above 9.99. Square-Enix will. Many others won't.

Each of these Games would be Priced at 15$, Sure, It would be a Pricey App.
But you get what you pay for, The Fable games are Very Large.

Plus, If Millions of people buy this app (which is Likely since Fable is quite Popular), It would be Profitable.

even priced at $10 no app has probably never sold 1 million copies, so i doubt it would sell 1 million at $15
