Nokia NGage Dies Slowly Again!
Nokia have recently announced the end of their gaming platform, the NGage. Instead, the OVI store will be used as the gaming platform.
“We’ve been busy evolving our mobile gaming service and building up the portfolio of games in OVI Store. Currently, we have more than a thousand games available in OVI Store supported by 100 Nokia device models and are growing the platform and portfolio as quickly as possible.
If you haven’t checked out OVI Store lately, we suggest you stop by store.ovi.com/games for the latest mobile games for your Nokia device.”
The NGage games can be purchased online upto 2010 and the site and NGage Arena will remain online throughout 2010. It is likely that a replacement for NGage Arena will be developed through OVI. The purchased NGage games will continue to work even after 2010 but you will not be able to use the community services.
