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.

wow, for a second

i thought at&t was on the right track with the any mobile, 4gb tethering/hotspot, and dropping the requirement for messaging on QMPs....but...gaming network?? i hope they don't screw this up.
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?

Considering AT&T's issues with network congestion in a lot of their larger markets, do we assume this new feature isn't going to add to an already over stressed network?

You would think the better PR move would be to announce improvements and changes to their network.
I think they are counting on a lot of network capacity opening up in the coming year.

Anyone else wonder why there are 15,000 registered developers and only 4,500 games? Over 2/3's of them haven't made any games? Sounds like a worthy investment to me!
That's assuming every developer is making their own game. A developer is an individual not a company

Try this

Hey at&t why not concentrate on your network instead of more of your craptastic overlay and apps.
