Games have become a basic requirement on a mobile phone nowadays. Back when the only phone to have a game was the Nokia, which came packaged with Snake, there were literally no other games phones around. Fast forward to today, and we are seeing a market that has become saturated with gaming devices, where the phone sometimes becomes a secondary need below the games themselves.
Thanks to online marketplaces like the app store or Google Play, mobile games have become a big market, accounting for a majority of downloads per month from both stores. Indeed, some phones have even started to market themselves as a phone for gamers, particularly the Sony xperia series and the Nokia Lumia. Sony has taken their knowledge of gaming hardware and integrated it with their knowledge of phones. There are loads of games available from their online store; some of them are old PS1 titles, some specially made for the phone itself.
Nokia on the other hand have teamed up with Microsoft, enabling them to provide support and extra services based around the xbox 360. You can browse your gamer profile on the move, as well as check the store for new releases to download when you get home.
The android store has thousands of games available for download, with an astonishing amount of them available for free. Much like the App store, the games themselves are fully featured titles in their own right; with some overtaking the graphics and playability of titles on the consoles. Advances in technology have allowed us to see what the future of handheld gaming is going to be like, and if the games we have today are any indication, we are in for a very exciting future.
