GameSpy Heads to iPhone

March 29th, 2009 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Multiplayer Gaming | No Comments »

Following a huge list of platforms like Nintendo’s DS and Sony’s Playstation 3, multiplayer specialist GameSpy is now also focusing on bringing it’s platform to Apple’s iPhone platform.

To make the platform interesting for both the big publishers as well as the indie developers, the giant brings in 2 licensing models. For the publishers, the company offers per game fees while Indie developers can settle with a revenue-share.

Via the platform, developers will not only have access to standard services like leaderboards and profiles, but also cross-platform messaging, matchmaking and many other advanced multiplayer features.

Though GameSpy is big, there is a lot of competition out there already, but that’s the price of late entry in the mobile games market. Yet, Gamespy expects the first mobile games that support their service, to enter the app store in a matter of weeks.
