I think they'd be better off making an Xbox Mini. Or maybe a Game Box. iBox Shuffle? PalmBox? How good could Halo on a cell phone possibly be? Tetris is one thing, but Halo?

Maybe it's a very large cellphone?

I just envisioned a cell phone the size of a laptop... called the Xbox180.

Personally, I use a phone to communicate with other people but what the hell?

What's with the Halo bashing? Several other games are available on cellphones, so what's the matter with Halo?
Hugely popular game unless you're totally anti-Microsoft

I have nothing against Halo. But Halo was made to be played on a computer or an Xbox. I seriously doubt that a version of Halo downgraded to play on a cell phone will be anything worth the name that it's got. And like you said, phones are for calling people.

Need for Speed Underground 2 only got a 7 on the platforms but a 9 for mobile and it actually looks pretty good.

The mobile phone game version won#t look like Halo because it isnt Halo. It is a game based on the Halo universe. Most mobile games based on console or PC games actually do very well because they play to the phones strengths, that is quick and simple, usually platform gaming (check out Splinter Cell for example).

Few phones are currently powerful enough to cope with fully 3D games (though it is possible to get Quake running on a Windows Smartphone such as the SPV C500), and the screen size is not that much of an issue.
