NBC Sports Reveals Mobile Lineup
Three new titles for on-the-go sports fans
Starting in early 2006, NBC Sports and Abandon Mobile will be launching three new NBC Sports-branded mobile games across 125 types of wireless handsets. The newly revealed titles -- Bode Miller Alpine Racing, NBC Sports Speed Skating, and NBC Sports Figure Skating -- mark the first lineup of games supported by NBC under the recently announced agreement with Abandon Mobile.
"Our idea was to create games that people everywhere would associate with," said Jamie Ottilie, Chief Operating Officer, Abandon Mobile. "When you're looking to kill a few minutes by playing games on your mobile device, you want something fun and familiar."
The three titles are being developed to appeal to both seasoned vets of the respective sports as well as novices just looking for some quick on-the-go fun. Each game will offer up a different experience, giving players the ability to assume the identity of a world champion downhill skier, a short track speed skater, or an up-and-coming figure skater.
Additional games releasing under this NBC Sports-branded line of mobile titles include NBC Sports Heads-Up Poker and Golf Skills Challenge, both due out sometime later in 2006.
