Vodafone and Sony to offer new games on mobiles

Vodafone Group and Sony's PlayStation computer games division have signed a deal which may lead to a long-term relationship between the two companies.

Under the terms of the deal, the two companies will conduct research into adding new games to mobile phones, developing new mobile phone devices and other new services, a Vodafone spokeswoman said.

Initially the research is likely to concentrate on the potential of sending game hints and tips using SMS text-messaging or WAP. No financial details were disclosed.
