iPhone set to get games?

There's talk all over the web of the U.K. getting iTunes Movies and T.V. shows "by the end of the month" - something us Brits are long overdue. Here at Download Squad we decided to see whether it truly is a matter of "flipping the switches" on this rumoured store, and dug into the iTunes localisation strings. Whilst we admittedly couldn't find any strings directly related to the implementation of a U.K. iTunes Video store, two strings certainly caught our eyes:

/* ===== iPhone Game Item Strings ===== */
"4329.001" = "Are you sure you want to remove the selected game from your iPhone?";
"4329.002" = "Are you sure you want to remove the selected games from your iPhone?";

Given that there are currently no games shipping with the iPhone to remove, and certainly none available on the iTunes Store to add, that hit us like a bombshell: Apple seems to be readying games for the iPhone. Whilst purely speculation at the moment, if it proves to be anything more than simply pre-emptive software strings, you'll hear about it here on Download Squad.
