Hahahaha!! Oh I can't wait. If it's like any of the other places that outsource, (including my place) they'll send out the specs, India will deliver the code *wrong*, Ubisoft will resend the specs, India will redeliver wrong, etc.

After about 6 iterations and triple the cost of the expected "savings" of outsourcing, Ubisoft will have their half-assed, poorly written, untested code. lol !

(I've done a huge amount of work with outsourcing to India and not once has it ever had a positive result. Sad, but true)

Phone based games huh ?

I dont see the market. I see the millions of phones out there.. but I dont see people buying games for them. The vast majority of phones have poor screen resolutions, awkward controls (especially any new Sony Ericsson phone with buttons meant for midgets), poor access (ie. downloading takes ages and is seen to be expensive), plus there isn't an easy shop (like PC version of Steam). Most phones have different memory, OS, keyboard features and screens.

What a nightmare.

As for Ubisoft.. well Hmmm... Every PC port (thats all they do these days) recently has been a stonking disaster so they can quietly kiss my a** !

If you know what 'Peek' and 'Poke' represents, then you are probably as old as me.
In 1982 I was addicted to Lady Bug and played it in the local arcade (every day) And yes i'm proud I did that!

Mobile games are easy to write, but arn't really alot of fun. Especially when compared to PSP's and DS's which can get quite addictive. Usually, using straight forward Java or BREW, and sometimes C# if the target platoform is running Windows Embedded.
