N-Gage 2.0 is Coming

A recent entry over at Nokia N-Gage's official blog announced that EA Mobile and Gameloft "have committed to support the next generation of N-Gage". Nokia hints that those aren't the only two companies that will be offering "top-selling, award winning titles" and that the mobile company will be making deals with "other leading publishers" to expand the future N-Gage library. Nokia is making a bold decision to continue competing in the mobile gaming market, especially since it is particularly saturated with the DS and PSP already. The new version of the N-Gage is said to be coming in early 2008 - further details are yet to be revealed.

so they just dont learn or what ? n-gage never worked out QD never worked out also and the 2.0 will not work... honestly anyone who would want to buy a phone coz it can play will be someone who love gaming on the go and that means someone who likes quality gaming... and dont think nokia can provide that in anyway posible .. FFS they r were a freaken shoes company before they went into mobiles .... "sight"

Bad reporting. There is no new N-Gage handset. They are talking about the N-Gage platform which will bring higher quality mobile games accross a variety of Nokia N-series phones. This is a way of standardising their mobile games. Some handsets that these games will work on are already out now.

I own an NGage QD and let me tell you.. I would never buy another, they're terrible as phones and the games are average.

this is gonna be a joke.... nintendo is pretty much the "one and only" when it comes to handheld gaming... me personally i dont like handheld stuff now as it's just to primitive compared to consoles/pc's ... but for everyone else you basically got nintendo (which is more or less the sony of handhelds) and it's only other small competition is the psp and thats it.

bottom line is nintendo pretty much has a monopoly on handheld market ever since the original gameboy.

u r not serious r u ? .... i dont want to to change this topic but i guess all known what i mean sny and nintendo......

hahahaha i was just thinking about it we want the sidetalking back so it can be another crappy funny stupid mobile back

just because you hear it the loudest with sidetalking doesn't mean its not possible to simply use it the normal way.
just turn the volume up by 1 bar or 2... gosh...

Cell phone games suck a ton as they are. This will either be a new platform for playing ****ty cellphone games, or maybe force other cellphones/carriers/developers to stop making ****ty games.

The N-Gage QD was a massive improvement over the original model, in my opinion. I think Nokia has the right philosophy this time... Don't make a seperate gaming console, instead, just design awesome games for your already awesome smartphones. I would really like to see an "N-Gage" built into some of Nokia's high end models, like the N95.

Yup i agree, the ngage games from 2003-2004 still bear most mobile phone games today in gameplay, quality and grapics.

I hope they work on the 6630!

rubbish! qd was plain crap!
im a proud owner of the classic n-gage, with ALL the features a n-gage ever had!
qd is so... well nevermind
the look of the qd rocks socks tho, but other than that...

ewwww why let these things into the public... unless they can sort it out so its PSP quality then it might be alreeeet. - but i doubt that would happen.

Your comment is the most useless post I've ever seen on Neowin

How do you know the person has never used or owned one?

Your ID is no_n00bs. Which tells me you're just some immature person who loves talking trash over the INTERNET from behind the safety of a monitor. You think your "1337 AnD c001", but that only exists in that sad little fantasy world you've created in your mind. Now go back to playing outside with your little friends (in your world that's when you're actually sitting on your computer playing World of Warcraft for the 13th straight hour) and take your trash somewhere else.


Get some ice while you're out also, because you just recieved a wicked burn

Sweet!!! i loved my ngage and every other symbian phone whats so bad about games on the go??

i'd rather have a mobile in my pocket that i can play emulators, ghost recon, tomb raider etc on than having to lug around a DS or PSP in the chance i'd be bored enough to use it.

Definate buy for me tomtom, games, mp3, camera (i hope) oh and a phone lol what more could you want

It's not going to be a new N-Gage, they are just making the games part of all other Nokia phones the N-Gage if you understand what i mean.
