Gaming is surely catching up of late on your fav mobile OS, Android. Thank the upcoming dual-core phones or the 1 GHz processors powering your phone or the developers (probably the best of three factors) to take due notice of android’s huge sales of 300,000 phones per day. Each day, we’re getting closer to get our fav titles on android sooner than ever.
Oh yes, the new market policies enforced recently by Google also deserve credit for the game developers now listing games on android market. First, Google now allows 50 MB of space per app/game, against 25 MB earlier. And second and more important, users can get the refund only if they request it within 15 mins of purchase, which was 24 hours before that. The second factor really helps games devs who felt that users can complete the game within 24 hrs and then return it as per policy. Now, with 15 mins time frame, android market seems a happy place to them, rather than launching the games on own website.
The latest to realize android’s growing potential is the EA Mobile, who just listed two of its already launched awesome titles on android market: Need for Speed and the Sims 3. Both the games cost $4.99, which isn’t insane and you can expect similar pricing for yet another solid title, Madden NFL 11, that would come soon in Jan ’11.
Currently, four games of EA mobile have been launched in the android market and it won’t be wrong to expect all games that are on iOS, to come soon on android market too.
Oh, be the way, we do hope that our another lovely game developer, Gameloft, takes inspiration from this!
