    When users turn on their new BlackBerry Playbook tablet for the first time, they had better be prepared for some fun and excitement with two iconic games from Electronic Arts preloaded(i) and available for hours of entertaining gameplay - Need for Speed Undercover, the high-octane action game, and Tetris, one of the world's most popular video games of all time.

    Cool!

    I guess that's the racing game shown in those PB mock-ups?

    "Research In Motion and Electronic Arts Inc. made the announcement today, ahead of this year's Mobile World Congress, (February 14 to February 17, 2011, in Barcelona, Spain) where the companies will demonstrate Need for Speed Undercover and Tetris running on the highly anticipated BlackBerry PlayBook and showcasing the tablet's next generation high definition 3D capabilities."

    Very good news!

    Especially marketing-wise. A big (if not the biggest) and recognizable game publisher showing off graphics power of the PB. That'll catch some consumers and developers' attention.

    Very nice.

    Not sure about Tetris though. Guess they wanted something graphically demanding, and something a calculator could run.

    Don't forget, the majority of popular mobile games are quite simple. I would imagine business users playing Tetris as opposed to NFS.

    At the same time NFS better addresses the consumer/gaming crowd. It's a good balance.

    Yea good point. I guess it will be nice to show prospective game developers how easy it can be

    Besides, there must be a shed load of developers out there just ready and waiting to get their teeth in to the Playbook userbase with their games?

    Well, now some folks will be able to see what the device is capable of. I'm gonna have to set aside a few bucks, this might be fun.

    This was another thing hinted at during CES. The Tablet OS has the flexibility and the PlayBook has the power for all kinds of applications. Mobile computing isn't just a kooky catchphrase.

    Maybe they'll make Madden and Tiger Woods. Not too interested in Tetris or Need for Speed but pairing with EA is a big plus for RIM

    Okay, this looks so awesome, but I'm wondering about the controls. Would you actually be able to steer the cars by turning and moving your whole Playbook or will it be a keyboard based game?

    Probably with the accelermeter. I even remeber seeing a video where a rim employee said it had a gyroscope, but I've never heard anything official.
