Well this seems to lend at least a little more credibility to the whole Halo port debate. If you didn't click the link, sounds like Age of Empires is first up.

Personally, I don't see any downside to MS porting any of their older games to iOS. They make some more money and get advertising on top of that to encourage people to buy the newer iterations of their games on PC or console.

I really hope they dont view on iOS just as an advertising tool.

LOL. I would hope not too. But it wouldn't be a very effective advertising tool if they were crappy ports so you'd think they'd put some effort into it.

Yeah, I want something at least as high-quality as Borderlands Legends. >_>
