YOU ASKED FOR IT!

GIANTBOMB GAME OF THE YEAR 2012 COMES TO iOS FINALLY!

Full port except for less maps. I remember map variety being a problem I had with it on 360 so OUCH.

Embedded video for the lazy.

I applaud them for making this possible. Especially if it is really the whole experience, I find that quite the amazing feat!

Seeing as I used remote desktop on my iOS devices to do, well, exactly this I can say I'm pretty excited.

Considering the shit-ass framerate I experienced on the PS3 I'm curious how this sucker will turn out on a mobile device.

I've been playing Fire Emblem on the 3DS and was thinking how I would actually prefer to play X-Com like this (portable). Now I can, I just have to wait a few months.

Just read this article on Joystiq, which contains both the best news and the best quote:

http://www.joystiq.com/2013/04/09/xcom-enemy-unknown-ios-wont-have-in-app-purchasable-upgrades/

Firaxis' Jake Solomon made the blunt disclosure to IGN, reaffirming the upcoming mobile version of the 2012 strategy game is a straight port.

"Oh God, please...," Solomon responded to IGN when asked about in-app purchases like power-ups, "No. I'm not sure I would be able to sleep at night. My food would taste like ashes in my mouth."

Know this is kind of an old thread but has anyone heard any updates on the release of this? Perhaps a more specific date and price point? I'd guess it'll definitely range closer to its standard price but I was hoping to pick it up before my long trip this summer

When they release the IOS version, I hope they announce some kind of expansion like what friaxis have for their civ games
