Gameloft Joins Forces With Orange To Provide Mobile Games In Africa And Middle East
"Orange" you glad to play Asphalt 6: Adrenaline in Madagascar? OK, that was terrible.
This afternoon, Gameloft announced a joint partnership with multinational telecommunications corporation, Orange, to bring its games to customers in Africa and the Middle East on smartphones and JAVA compatible devices; turns out, Orange is already in 22 countries located within these two regions.
It's quite an ambitious proposal, as both parties will attempt to provide over 300 titles from Gameloft's back catalogue, including Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, accessible through Orange's mobile portal. There was a successful launch in Ivory Coast, Mauritius, Madagascar and Jordan, and the offer was made available in Egypt on June 26 for 32 million Mobinil subscribers.
What's more, users will be able to try before they buy, and Orange wants to pre-install Real Football on mobiles in Africa.
Granted, this may not seem important depending on where you live, but we think it's great to see games delivered to different parts of the world.
