Rockstar games has announced the upcoming release of Beaterator
, one Rockstar Games' Non-Grand-Theft-Auto games, for release on the iPod Touch and iPhone. Is any game safe from conversion to iPod Touch/iPhone game format? I'm starting to wonder if there's any game NOT available for the iPhone. If iPhones were so expensive, and I weren't a PC lover, I'd have to get one. Yes, just for the games.
