Twenty EA exclusives for Nokia’s Windows Phones

Twenty EA exclusives for Nokia’s Windows PhonesThe modest handful of manufacturers backing Windows Phone 7 will undoubtedly be feeling a bit put out by all the attention Nokia World received last week. Elop didn’t help when he described the Nokia Lumia 710 and 800 as the “first real Windows Phones”.

EA took the opportunity to rub salt in the wound with the announcement that it’ll provide 20 titles exclusively to Nokia’s Windows Phones.

“This time, we’ll be designing our games for an awe-inspiring experience on Windows Phone for Nokia,” said Barry Cottle, EA’s Executive Vice President and GM.

There’ll be a host of first and third-party games, including:

  • FIFA 12
  • Madden 12
  • Tiger Woods PGA Tour
  • Dead Space
  • NBA Jam
  • Bejeweled 2
  • Flight Control
  • Hasbro Collection

Neither EA or Nokia could confirm when the games will be made available for the Lumias, or if the games will eventually find their way onto other Windows Phone handsets.

The Windows Marketplace has around 35,000 apps at present, which is a mere tenth of the number available on the App Store. Having said that, quality and quantity are two entirely different things.

After having a look at the prices in the Windows Marketplace, these wont be cheap.
Angry Birds IOS £0.69
Angry Birds Android Free
Angry Birds Symbian Free
Angry Birds WP7 £2.29!!!!!!!

And that's why I decided against the Lumia 800. An iPhone 4S would actually work out cheaper in the long run than the Lumia when you factor in app prices
