    With NFS and Deadspace so far, I can't imagine why EA wouldn't release of their other mobile titles. I would love to see Madden and NBA Jam hit the playbook.. Honestly, EA makes great games, so I am hoping to see them continue to port their collection over to the PB.

    What are your thoughts on this?

    my first thought, dont forget tetris
    but yes i think they are on board, however i could totally understand them not wanting to push out all their titles until the NDK is finalised

    Plants Vs Zombies... I really wish this would be top priority for EA (they own Popcap now). It's won Game Of The Year, and shouldn't be too too hard to port over... A lot easier than Fifa or Madden, etc anyways...

    I think they're getting paid by RIM to bring their games to the PlayBook, and will continue to do so as long as RIM continues to pay. I believe that what's going on right now with Dead Space is that they're checking out whether or not they'd be making enough money off of making apps for the PlayBook to cover the costs of making the app. I believe that if they happen to get $10 million in profit they would definitely make more games for the PlayBook, but if they don't even cover their costs they won't be making anymore if RIM stops paying them. This is my opinion, not necessarily absolute fact.

    If RIM would fix first Apps World, I'm sure there will be some positive progress in selling games and applications specially from good developers like EA...

    I would say yes as long as RIM keeps tossing bricks of cash their way.

    Over 1 million downloads on a single mobile platform for an old game is ridiculous. The game only sold 2 million copies across PC and consoles after 2 years.

    There isnt really any costs to cover except the time to port the game. The game has been done and costs covered years ago. Mobile platforms are just gravy. Granted, they do need some incentive... Wether it be cash from RIM or an actual decent profit in sales.

    Id like to know the sales for this game on this platform and what it actually costs a major company like EA to port a game to another platform. Im sure we will never know those things though.

    I'd really like to see Plants vs. Zombies on the Playbook. It's the perfect tablet game.

    They will be, but only as soon as RIM is fully on board.

    I don't think they're fully on board, but I think Dead Space might have been a foot in the door for them to explore the demand on the Playbook - assuming that this was their own venture and not paid for by RIM like Tetris or NFS. Hopefully it went well, or well enough, for them to fully commit some resources to the Playbook.

    I wasn't saying that they have any chance of getting 1 million downloads... Aren't there only 200,000 or so PlayBooks out there? I was just saying that if they get ridiculously amazing sales they'll definitely continue on with the PlayBook, and if they aren't getting enough even to be worth the effort of porting, they won't do anything more without cash incentive from RIM. Since I have no idea of where they draw the line of how many sales are good enough to continue with, I went to extremes to make a point.

    I really like Need For Speed, and I know it probably won't happen, but I'd love to see a Nascar Thunder game on the PlayBook or even just additional Need For Speed games. It's cool to steer by tilting the PlayBook, I can only imagine how much fun a racing game like Nascar Thunder would be!
