Are Nokia Exploring a 'Comes with Games' Strategy?

It might be flagged up heavily as a mix of rumour and speculation, but Stuart Dredge's column over on Pocket Gamer makes a certain amount of sense. In it he puts forward the idea that Nokia will launch a 'Comes With Games' service, similar to 'Comes With Music' that we know is coming. The rumor was repeated by many at the recent Leipzig Game Developers Conference, with one major label allegedly signed up.

Read on in the full article.

Well if it takes as long to introduce it as 'Comes with Music' then we won't have to worry about it for a long long time.

Nokia really need to start looking at other companies and announce new products and services LATER rather than SOONER, examples include the aforementioned 'Comes with Music' announced over a year ago and still no sign of any handsets that come with it.

And of course the N96 still not out over 6 months after being first shown, with many new handsets from LG and Samsung now featuring 8 megapixel cameras etc, the N96 is in danger of being outdated (in the eyes of the general public) before it is even available.

And finally N-Gage.
1 - Why hasn't it been added to new firmware updates across all compatible devices (think the latest N81 update featured it?)
2 - Why is it still not available for many of the promised older devices
3 - Why is it idiotically not available for newer devices like the N78 and N96 either.

I have lost all interest in N-Gage really.
The worst thing is if you format your phone, although your points are remembered online on, they don't show up on your phone when you re-install and login to your account from your phone.
Thus the only way to get them back on your phone is to re-earn them, you then have different point totals on your phone and online.
What you end up with is a total mockery of the points system.
