Now thats a partnership i would love to see progress well. atm the java games are ok and some are good and most i dont like. But the combo or nokia and EA Games will be a great combination and im glad they are the forerunners of this idea. I would love to play Fifa 06 that is a game i would download on my phone.

hope the game not need high speed CPU and many RAM. im afraid the game only for "new nokia phones" my 6600 only have about 100MHz cpu and 10MB RAM but NEW nokia symbian phones, have more than 220MHz cpu and more than 14MB RAM...

not a fan of EA. They've come to represent commercialism in videogames. Nothing inovative at all. They killed James Bond. They seem to excel at sports games, but sports games don't require an extreme amount of imagination either. They pump out games which look good visually but otherwise it's just another shooter, or sports game, or lotr game. But more video games on phones is a good thing overall, so whatever. As long as they don't screw up Tetris it's ok.

Well they sorta have already... well with Nokia they have. They brought out the NGage remember. That was a phone and game system in one. Personally i dont play any mobile games except Snake. If I wanna play all the EA titles I will just buy the PC or PS2 Version.
