Since we have been coving BlackBerry gaming quite a bit here at BerryReview.com I thought you guys would be interested in this article on the Wall Street Journal about the status of BlackBerry games. They start by discussing the old school BrickBreaker and move on to discuss what is coming up for BlackBerry gamers. They do fail to mention Magmic which is quite surprising since they seem to be the leader in great BlackBerry games. This quote below seems to give the main point of the article:
“Now, as the high-end market grows, game makers are realizing that business-oriented smart-phone users want games, too. Smart-phone makers are also facilitating new games by making it easier for content companies to tweak old games and build new ones for their devices.”
Personally I agree whole heartedly that BlackBerry games are only now starting to come out in the limelight. Developers such as Magmic are taking the BlackBerry gaming experience to a new level. The article does mention games by both Gameloft and EA Mobile but neither of these has as good of a catalog as Magmic. Gameloft has been promising for months to release games for the new 8100/8800/8300 devices but has failed to deliver as of now. EA mobile games does not seem to have any BlackBerry games even thought the Wall Street Journal seems to think they do. Tell us what you think.
