Less than 500 N-Gages sold in game retailers during launch week. Don't know how many sold in phone retailers.
Still, that is abysmal. And it's been advertised.
"This is where i missed the target..." <-----No, not the advert, quote from Nokia Manager.
I must admit they were far more enjoyable than my experiences with the N-Gage.
And the P900 has an exclusive version of V-Rally! Those phones are really worth their prices (if you shop around, you won't have to pay the £400+ price tag).
Even the Nokia 3650 got it right with its' games. At least you could play Doom on that.
Some methods included having people follow folk who owned the phone, whilst taking notes. True you know.
The design and the controls are truly pathetic.
And the games must be a joke.
N-gage has only ported games from the ps1 and gba.
Yesterday I was at a store wich had a demo for the n-gage, so I tried the Tomb Raider game wich was supposed to be good.
It sucked to be honest.
The graphics were ugly and the gameplay were boring.
The ported games from the gba was not the best choice Nokia could have done.
They must understand that on the gba they were good, but on the n-gage they are a bit out-dated.
Why can not the tapwave zodiac be released here in Europe!
Just bring it on Nokia, Nintendo will defend your attacks!!!
They have heard a rumour that it is to be redesigned. I think that would be the best thing. If I could play one without a SIM card, if I could change games without taking the battery off and if the screen was landscape instead of portrait, it would be a much better system. It has the power, just not the design.
I personally think that Ngage is being far too clever by being 2 things once making an incredably ulgy hybrid of a machine. The graphics whiles better then the GBA is no where as good or decent. Hopefully they should drop the price and change the shape will save it from damnation.
