Nokia Say N-Gage Popularity Increasing

Ah, N-Gage. Such a...tarnished brand. You'd think after two failed N-Gage handsets and a "who cares?" launch of an N-Gage gaming portal, Nokia would just give up. But they're not. » 3/25/09 4:30am 3/25/09 4:30am

In case you missed it, the "new" N-Gage service is out. The one that makes the games available over a variety of Nokia handsets, instead of a single, dedicated unit. If you didn't know that, it's OK, it wasn't that interesting. This might be. Konami have signed onto the service, and will be releasing a ton of their… » 5/20/08 4:30am 5/20/08 4:30am
