    Pocketgamer reports NobiNobiBoy, from the creator of Katamari, will be coming to iPhone. I was pretty jealous that it was released on PSN and not XBL. Namco is publishing the title.

    Hopefully it'll have better framerate. iKatamari is an awful port. It's good for those who never played the PS2 version as otherwise they'd realise how choppy the framerate is (and the graphics are worse too, of course).

    Eh, Namco has done poorly with Katamari and Inspector Gadget, so not too happy with the fact that they're in charge here.

    Then again, I have a PS3 -- maybe I'll just check it out on PSN.

    Beautiful katamari on 360 is far better.
    It wasn't ported to the iPhone; It was created for the iPhone. Also, I don't know if you saw the other mobile versions, but The iPhone version wups their butt.

    I wouldn't be surprised if Apple rejects this game due to the fact that Boy essentially shits on demand.

    Whatever though.

    Bandai-Namco will shoot themselves in the face again by pricing the game @ $6.99, which is $6.00 more than it is worth. Anyone who has played the PS3 version already knows that Nobi Nobi Boy delivers exactly 1.5 hours worth of entertainment before becoming ridiculously boring.

    I will admit however, that I still find stretching out to feed girl all of my inches hillarious in an adolescent way.

    If the original is $5 on PSN, there's no way I see this port being more than that. I'd think it'd be free as a way of getting people interested in it, and then possibly purchasing it for their PS3.
