* Is the N-Gage Dead?

Mobile gaming (GBA/etc)
Gamesradar examines the question of whether the N-Gage may be toast.

While Nokia have yet to confirm or deny that they plan to shut the factory, they have revealed that the job losses will be from their multimedia division, which was responsible for developing some of Nokia's camera and smart phones as well as the N-Gage itself.

Meanwhile, a further indication that N-Gage is failing to capture the gaming public's imagination is that ChartTrack have recently dropped the N-Gage chart from its weekly listings after sales fell short of making any impression on the market.

...

A Nokia representative has this afternoon told us that "as far as we're concerned, there are no plans for that [N-Gage production to cease] to happen at all. It's completely unfounded. We've got a great line-up of games coming out this year and Nokia are completely committed to N-Gage."
Yeah, that's great.

Now if you'd put them out for a better platform, people might actually PLAY your "great" games.

Personally, I wouldn't be caught dead playing with the Ear Taco, nor will I ever touch a system that tries to make me pay for a cell phone plan just to play games that I could get for (and would look better on) my DS.
