CCP Announces release of FOG 123
Cologne, GERMANY, Game Developers Conference Europe – August 18, 2009 – CCP announces the release of FOG 123, for release on the Iphone. In planning since last Thursday, it will interact directly with CCP's flagship game EVE.
Game mechanics have not been fully released, but rumour has it that players will be able to use their Iphones to randomly select ships to explode, thereby guaranteeing much rage and butthurt to dedicated players.
When asked why CCP would release such a tie in, which is sure to alienate people who take games too seriously, CEO Hilmar Veigar Petursson answered simply, "We did it for the lulz", thereby confirming his status as a prince among trolls.
"Since the begginging of negotiations with Apple, we have worked to guarantee maximum amounts of lulz from players who take gaming so seriously that they are sure to rage and write numerous blog entries and Youtube vidoes about how mucht he game will now suck. But we know the truth, the people who are most emotionally connected with the game will continue to be our best customers. I mean, what else are they going to do, get girlfriends and go outside? We think this will hardly be the case."
Further details will be released once massive amounts of butthurt have been achieved on EVE forums.
CCP is widely recognized as an industry-leading pioneer of the single-server persistent universe architecture as the developer and publisher of EVE Online, the critically-acclaimed, science fiction-based massively multiplayer online game (MMOG). Utilizing a cross-discipline approach combining cutting-edge technology and artistic excellence, CCP is dedicated to providing vibrant, compelling products that transcend the boundaries of conventional MMOGs and facilitate social networking through virtual worlds. Privately held and founded in Reykjavik, Iceland in 1997, CCP’s international reach now spans the globe with offices in Atlanta and Shanghai as well as a base of operations in London. More information about CCP is available at the company’s website, www.ccpgames.com.

This makes a lot of sense.
Of course, I own an iphone, so I at least could play this one.
I haven't owned a console since the Sega Genesis. Have no intention of changing that.
