AT&T to Pursue Gaming Network for Android Users
AT&T has said that it plans to offer a mobile, social gaming platform for users of its Android smartphones. AT&T is partnering with a company called OpenFeint, which has 65 million registered users and more than 4,500 games in its catalog. OpenFeint offers users the ability to post scores in addition to live chats during multiplayer games. The platform competes with Apple's Game Center and boasts 15,000 registered developers. An AT&T spokesperson told the Wall Street Journal, "The net-net here is that we want developers to build more connected games for our customers." AT&T didn't say when the gaming platform might launch, nor which devices would be compatible with it.

The idea isn't bad, but they should have brought in carrier partners, if not in the US (which they should) then go international.
I assume this isn't going to add to network problems?
You would think the better PR move would be to announce improvements and changes to their network.
