Hands-On Mobile finds top exec

Ex-EA bigwig Keith McCurdy added to the mobile-games publisher's development, worldwide strategy brass.

Mobile-games publisher Hands-On Mobile has tapped a former Electronic Arts executive to be one of its new leaders. Keith McCurdy--once a top exec in EA's product development, technology, and online divisions--has been announced as the new president of studios and products at Hands-On, where he will oversee the company's development studios and worldwide strategy. Among Hands-On's mobile games are Call of Duty, Call of Duty 2, The Elder Scrolls Travels: Stormhold, and True Crime.

Most recently, McCurdy helmed Blaze Entertainment, another mobile-games publisher, formerly known as Kayak Interactive. Hands-On Mobile itself underwent a recent name change, from the moniker Mforma. In March, a California judge granted a small legal victory to Yahoo in a lawsuit with Mforma. Yahoo alleged that a group of its former employees departed for Mforma and illegally took with them Yahoo trade secrets.

why bother posting to tell us you don't care for mobile games. Hey guess what, we don't care that you don't care. PS: It would be awesome if you responded with "I don't care that you don't care that I don't care." so that I could respond with "I don't care that you don't care that I don't care that you don't care." See how pointless this post is?

The Elder Scrolls Travels: Stormhold sounds good. Mobile games get a bad rap.. and its simply because of badly made games and design. It could be a great platform for classic games. Hopefully mcCurdy can make half abit of difference...
