Gameloft's focus is downloadable titles, and with the PSPgo sharing said focus, the company is ready with a line-up of five titles for 2009, including an online multiplayer version of UNO.
Not one to miss the downloadable games party, Gameloft aims to be front-and-center this holiday season on the PSPgo and original PSP. The company has sports covered in the form of Real Soccer 2010 and Let's Golf!, while racing and action-adventure fans are catered to with Asphalt 5 and Hero of Sparta respectively.
Still, the most exciting title would have to be UNO. Sad, I know, but with the addition of online multiplayer, it'll be like having the Xbox Live Arcade version in the palm of your hand. I can think of worse things to have in the palm of your hand.
"For the past 10 years our focus and expertise has been digitally distributed games. From mobile games to iPhone/iPod Touch to next-gen consoles, our success stems from the ability to adapt and evolve on the latest platforms," said Michel Guillemot, president, Gameloft. "The PSP(R)go will contribute to the innovations going on in the gaming space right now and we look forward to being front and center with our games at launch."
