    Few of the major news sites have reported on this, but EA has announced that Star Wars Battlefront: Base Command, a companion app to its console big brother Star Wars: Battlefront, is coming out November 17.

    It'll be - brace for disappointment - yet another card game, with the added bonus that you'll be able to earn currency and unlockables for the console game as you play it.

    They could have ported the psp version of battlefront on ios but never mind,it's EA.
    At least we have Foursaken media and some other devoted indie developers.

    Yeah, it'd be great to have the PSP Battlefront games on iOS (especially Elite Squadron and Renegade Squadron), but I still believe it'd be feasible to port the PS2 games too. Sure, that'd be a heavier and more complex endeavour than the PSP games, but when you notice the massive ports of games from that era we already have on iOS (GTA San Andreas, KOTOR, LEGO Star Wars and Stranger's Wrath, just to name a few), it doesn't sound that impossible. I could see Aspyr doing a terrific job of porting the first Battlefront (the Mac version of which they were responsible for). I'll admit, that's what I was hoping would happen around the time the new Battlefront drops. As it is, another Star Wars card game feels poor in comparison...

    I, unfortunately, have yet to play a Battlefront game. I've got a PS3 and iOS. I'd love to see some ports on the App Store and PSN. There was a port to Mac by Aspyr a while ago. But now I can't find it. BF2 is on steam, but only for PC. EA should have tried to capitalize on this release by hiring Aspyr to port the original to iOS and also release it on Steam/Mac App Store. But we get another card game instead.

    I have every single battlefront for the older PSP. I love them. I actually liked the first one that was released on the PSP.

    If they made one for IOS I'd buy it in a second. It would be awesome.
