Nokia partners with EA in major WinPho game push

Finnish first

The Essential Guide to IT Transformation

CES 2012

With the reveal of Nokia's Lumia 900 out the way, the Finnish phone giant turned its attention toward a new partnership with EA which will see over 25 popular games made available for Nokia handsets.

The full list of titles has yet to be revealed, but as you can see in the video below from EA Mobile's YouTube channel, several titles are worthy of note.

Fifa 12, Mirror's Edge and Dead Space join a list mainly dominated by Chillingo titles, a company EA bought out in 2010.

Still, the announcement will be a boost for the Windows Phone platform, which has so far failed to deliver much in the way of its gaming potential, especially with all this talk of Xbox Live integration.

How long the titles will stay exclusive to Nokia handsets remains to be seen, but they will be available to the rest of the WinPho community at a later date. ®
