This is an interesting outcome for a couple of reasons:
- If you are an iOS fan, this combined with the great XCOM sales indicates that iOS continues to be THE growth platform - heck, it is where EA made the most money last year! So it is a sign that more games of this type are headed to iOS.
- If you are an Android fan it is a good thing that you will get more games!
- If you hate mobile platforms and feel they usurp games from PC … well, it sucks for you.
- If you like deep gaming experiences this is NOT a good sign - more and more iOS and Android dominate not just the money side of things but the mind-share side … so as we keep seeing things are even more shallow and bite-sized …

I use to hate them but have since realized there just another way to play games.

Sounds nice. If Baldur's Gate Enhances Edition comes out again, I'll be as happy as I can be with my new tablet *g*

I don't even have an IOS device. Don't feel like I'm missing out on much.

Actually, no … and in that case I would have discussed a$$hats who like to come piss on threads when they should just shove off because they have nothing of value to add.

Don't like gaming on smartphones? Great! Here's a star and a trophy and a quarter! Stick the star on your forehead and shove the trophy up your butt and use the quarter to call someone who cares.

Sorry to be harsh, but given that (a) you show up in EVERY smartphone related thread and (b) you have nothing productive to say … why bother?

Stating that phonegames are too expensive is nothing? Okay.

btw, I don't show up in EVERY phone thread. I have better things to do. And I've shown my arse, butt, trophy, whatever in this one not because of phones and crap on them, but because of Deus Ex. I love that game, those games. Yet, I was betrayed by their makers.

Actually your general statement and sentiment is that they are crap - which is what you also stated here.

Ah, makes sense. I apologize in that regard - I forgot that you feel that the developers have a personal vendetta to ruin your life.

Now THIS I don't get. Can you explain?

As I see it, just because the two Matrix (or two Jurassic Park) sequels were crap doesn't do ANYTHING to lessen the original. Similarly , just because Deus Ex: Invisible War is dumbed down and consolized and inferior doesn't diminish the original. So why the issue that they decided to make a game for mobiles?

You've explained already. Matrix got movie sequels, not official youtube lowq cam videos.

Developers have nothing with it, what vendetta?
The decision to go milk phonefans and sell balls under the title kidneys was CEO's, not developers'.

So you would rather have an awful PC game than a decent iOS game? Is it simply the platform? Because you seem to have fully judged the game without evidence.

My thing with 'betrayal' is that is a personal work - reflecting something promised and/or owed that has been altered with impunity. As far as I know, there was no promise of The Fall as a PC game, and no statement that its existence precludes further PC games.

I look at it like Might & Magic Clash of Heroes coming out on the Nintendo DS 4 years ago - not a betrayal, not a change … just a game (and frankly a better one than Might & Magic: Kick-Kick-Kick

The Matrix did officially release a series of videos (anime even), as well as a failed MMO, and 2 video games with worse reviews then DE:The Fall.
