    To sum it up:

    - Nintendo is realizing people like iDevices
    - Nintendo knows people love Pokemon
    - Nintendo will market on this with a game produced for about $15 that will sell for $5

    Eh. What caught my attention was that Playstation Suite thing being able to emulate PS2 games. Pretty sure there is no phone as powerful as a PS2 yet.

    And Nintendo said that Apple was full of garage developers.

    At least Nintendo finally understands themselves now. [​IMG]

    Nintendo has been suddenly hearing voices of mobile(phone) gaming, now they want to increase
    their market share by making apps. Seems like they'll be getting moar moneyzz [​IMG]

    That would be great if Nintendo went mobile. A lot of the audience that the DS was aimed at (the casual audience) is gaming on their phones, so it would be a good marketing move to release games in that market.

    It would really make a hypocrite out of themselves, though.

    Pokemon is jointly owned between Nintendo, pokemon company, gamefreak and some other Maybe their names had to be included. Maybe pokemon company were pushing for it.

    The title shocked me, but then I realized it is Pokemon.

    They've milked it in every way possible, and they just keep trying.

    No big deal. As long as they don't keep making pointless apps.

    for me it will be a cross-favor if nintendo releases something for ios and android it has its own reasons ...........maybe just to say:
    I CAN ENTER THE MOBILE WORLD LIKE NOTHING AND HAVE MORE SALES THAN ANY MID-RANGE/BIG CORPORATE OUT THERE SO.............DONT SCREW WITH ME .
    IF YOU ENTER THE HANDLED WORLD (this is for apple and sony-ericsson) I CAN EASILY ENTER THE PHONE WORLD AND TAKE THE MAJORITY PART OF THE SHARES (i mean .....come on .....a phone with nintendo hardware/games.......a guarantied success!)
    SO LET EVERYONE HAVE ITS OWN FIELD OF SALES

    and i think (my personal opinion so no trolling) this is the most realistic scenario
