cell and shockwave link up

A few posts back I talked about the possible influx of content from Japan. So it was interesting to read via wirelesswatch that Cell have signed a distribution seal with who also funnily enough have a deal with Verizon for their Flash Lite based 'Shockwave Minis' arcade! In fact some of Cell's games are already part of the arcade, and you can play them here.

I think there are a couple of things that are actually bad about this though. Above all the Brew platform supports Flash Lite 2.1 and is capable of so much more than 1.1 based games built for in browser experiences. One button games have their place but its pretty limited. Flash Lite will be a lot more than that on the Brew platform as developers start to develop original games specifically for 2.1 not throwing existing content into the mix because its easy to do.
