    There have been many classic games that were released for mobile, such as Sonic CD and GTA: SA. I was thinking the same for GT4. Can you imagine that you would be racing the 24 Hours of Nurburgring instead of flicking birds? I can. Besides, Sony has this PS Moblie thing. You want GT4 to release on iOS, Android, or WP8? Discuss here.

    Because of how much of a licencing nightmare it would be (think of how much stuff didn't return for GT5), it's doubtful Sony could even rerelease it on PSN (just like with all of the other games in the series that weren't released on PSN at the same time as on disc); and they would never release it for platforms they don't control.

    I think porting GTPSP would be a better idea, but as Tornado said, it'd still be a bit on a headache.

    not to mention the monumetal porting job and how the PS2's architecture is a complete and utter different ball game to that of x86 and ARM.

    The memory bandwidth itself poses a massive headache without even considering that, most mobile platforms even struggle with emulating the PS1 thus far.

    How would I connect my DFP to a mobile device?

    it would more likely be a cut down version of GT6 that would get onto a mobile format, like the Call of Duty games have been

    How would I connect my DFGT too. I don't even think most phones would even have enough processing power to run GT4.

    PS Vita- yes.

    iPhones- NO! The controls won't work effectively, it won't run all too well and it'll also have a much too cluttered HUD- not to mention the removal of quite a few things to save space.

    Same here. I really want GT4 to be released on the PSVita as a PS2 classic, and also for the PS3.
