And I hope that when p's4 by Sony makes fames that incorporate player involvement via mobile devices that BlackBerry 10 will be incorporated

I don't understand why Blackberry doesn't just take 100 million dollars and make a few of their own freemium games (like MMO's) and apps. That way they'd have a little differentiation in their ecosystem.

Totally. 100s of millions of dollars on free games is a really interesting strategy.

Thanks for the pointer Mr . Cook!

I said 'freemium' games. Do you understand what the word means??

They have a screenshot of a prototype on the gameplay3d.org that they won't say anything about, and it might turn out to be a game they make. But really, it's better for them to focus on getting other developers to make games. BTW, MMO's are the hardest games to make and 100 million dollars wouldn't go as far as it would seem.

Think BB is working hard enough just getting features added to the OS... I'd rather they spent 100M on getting notifications working better. Better unlock screen. Allow integration of some apps like weather or BeBUZZ.

Games is one of the last things i'd want BBRY spending 100M on.

Hmm just no... lol let game devs work on games and let BlackBerry work on productivity apps and bb10 features.

Do you think ios and google made exclusivity claims with devs? Or at least the ones which matter.

Let games out BB.
iOS and Android already have all the premium players and extras with xBox + PS4 rolling content.
BlackBerry Should focus and work on productivity apps and revamp BB10 features.
