Amp'd Mobile Adds EA Games

Amp'd Mobile, that odd high-speed wireless service aimed at the younger folk, have teamed up with giant video game purveyor Electronic Arts. Looks like you'll soon be able to download 15 games, including Madden NFL 06, Need for Speed Underground 2 and The Sims 2 which could be more than mildly addicting on a cellphone. Amp'd (whose big-time investor just happens to be MTV) also says that it will actually build a dedicated game channel around the EA brand, letting you get video previews, user ratings and other content as well. The only time frame we have on this right now is "early this year" and no word on pricing just yet.
