Why are there no games on my Sony VAIO ?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Not that I'm a great fan of games, but I guess like most people I play
the odd few on Windows.

I recently bought a Sony SZ4XWN/C laptop which came with Vista Business.

Despite what Microsoft say on their site about the Games Explorer:


"Of course, you shouldn't forget about the games that are included with
Windows. Windows Vista includes updated 3-D versions of several classic
games, including Solitaire and Minesweeper. Also included is a new game
designed just for kids called Purble Place."

I don't seem to have a single game - no minesweeper, hears, solitaire
etc etc.

I've since updated to Vista Ultimate and downloaded the "Ultimate
Extras" which has now given me a single game called "Hold'Em".

But I seem to be missing the classic ones like minesweeper. Anyone know
if Sony have decided to remove these? Perhaps they thought a laptop
aimed at business users with Vista Business should not have any games,
although that would seem a very odd decision.
