Maybe, maybe. But Havok is a serious developer, and they are one of the first to come out and look at smartphone OS as a viable gaming platform.

Do we all remember the last hand held gaming phones? super cool concept. but It wont catch on. I would love one but if no one gets them there goes the market for them and all the other chances for them.

Remember folks, this is a Sony phone, so you've got a lot of development muscle behind this new platform. Unlike Sprint's Kyocera Echo, which will likely turn out to be the biggest failure this year.

this isnt a new unproven gaming platform like the NGage. This is multiple giants comming together on an already extremely popular platform and adding to it. Even if you dont game, its still a well spec'ed phone. I'd assume they are going to put this on as many carriers as possible and probably advertise the hell out of it.

Besides, this is android, whatever games that come out, will end up being able to be played on all the new phones that come out. Someone will make it happen. lol.
