Gameloft Connect, a new channel is born

December 18th, 2006 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Analysis & Editorial | 2 Comments »

Another initiative to attract consumer loyalty has been launched by Gameloft last weekend under the name Gameloft Connect. The service acts as an iTunes for mobile games and of course we gave it a small test drive.

After downloading the 3 MB package from here, the installer showed us the service is available in English, German, French and Spanish. Like any app that wants to have a prominent position, it suggests we should make it available on the desktop, start menu and quickstart. Since I don’t expect to buy a new game every day, just the start menu will do. The rest of the installation goes without questions.

Running for the first time
The application starts pretty fast and immediately asks me to register in order to get the first game for 1 Euro. I guess all you UK consumers are a bit unlucky there though as the conversion rate from Euro to Pounds is 1 on 1.

Browsing around
The homepage of the application shows us the categories and most downloaded games in a slim overview. It allows you to easily scroll trough screenshots and the prices

      Sounds nice, but there is no download link of the Gameloft Connect page?????

      I see huge “free download” buttons. Perhaps they use GeoIP to detect if the service is available in your country or not though..?
