Although reports on the web say that Nokia is still holding back on an official announcement until Monday, the Finnish phone firm has finally launched its N-Gage games service.

It's been a long time coming; originally set to arrive late last year, it has since been through an extended gestation and testing phase after a couple of delays.

Now, however, owners of Nokia's N81, N81 8GB, N82, or N95 handsets can download the client here - or by accessing the mobile site, n-gage.mobi/d - while N73, N93, and N93i will be able to access it soon.

The service lets players download games direct to their phone using over-the-air and sideloading digital distribution and is backed up with an Xbox Live-style user ID and menu system.
