GameGadget Adds Hundreds Of Games To Its Catalogue
GameGadget today announced that hundreds of games will be added to the GameGadget Games Marketplace and the latest release of its, “iTunes style” PC application is now available.
With Open Source Development, today marks the start of, what the folks at GameGadget hope, will be a large catalogue of Freeware and Shareware titles to be offered alongside Premium Content.
Described as the “iPod for Games” GameGadget is the first games console to be developed in the UK since the heyday of Spectrum and Amstrad over 20 years ago. The GameGadget Application, the gaming equivalent of iTunes, allows for games to be downloaded directly onto the GameGadget via a secure DRM system.
Jason Cooper, founder of GameGadget commented “There are a number of Open Source devices that allow developers to create content, such as the Dingoo, but this device is very complicated to use by the end user, and also not very easy to develop for. The Dingoo is also more expensive than the GameGagdet. Until the launch of GameGadget, there was no simple way for developers to distribute their games, or for users to easily enjoy them. GameGadgetGames provides a simple solution for content owners and end users alike.
This news comes hot on the heels of a new £59.99 retail price, which includes 10 free classic SEGA games for download.
