美国运营商At&T将OpenFeint植入Adnroid手机平台

日前,美国运营商At&T宣布将在Android手机植入新的社交游戏平台OpenFeint,该公司在失去苹果iPhone的专属经营权后,开始将业务重心转向谷歌Android手机平台。

据游戏邦了解,At&T将与OpenFeint这个社交游戏平台合作,支持不同手机操作系统的用户在该平台进行互动,让他们晒出游戏积分,进行多人模式竞赛以及游戏聊天等活动。与此同时,它也为开发商提供了创建游戏内容的平台。

OpenFeint目前有6500万的注册用户,4500款游戏,其中包括Android和iPhone平台上的热门游戏《水果忍者》(Fruit Ninja),以及在为该平台提供新游戏的1万5千名开发商。OpenFeint是苹果去年9月发布的社交游戏平台Game Center的竞争对手。

AT&T发言人表示,“我们希望通过双方合作,支持开发商为用户创造更多具有互动性的游戏。”

游戏邦认为,这一举动或许更将提升手机游戏的市场地位。OpenFeint的执行总裁彼得·瑞朗(Peter Relan)表示,在智能手机更为普及之前,手机游戏的技术水平较任天堂和索尼PlayStation等移动设备相比,仍然略为逊色,但相信手机游戏的发展势不可挡,手机平台的大量涌现,将日益体现手机游戏的市场价值。(本文为游戏邦/gamerboom.com编译,转载请注明来源:游戏邦)

AT&T to Offer New Gaming Platform on Android

AT&T will offer a new social gaming platform on its Android phones, as the company invests more heavily in the Google operating system in the wake of losing its exclusive hold on Apple Inc.’s iPhone.

The carrier will partner with the OpenFeint video game network, a social gaming community that allows users to play each other across different operating systems. The OpenFeint community allows users to post high scores, have multi player competition and chat while playing games. It also provides a platform for game developers to create content.

The company says it has 65 million registered users and 4,500 games, including the popular Fruit Ninja, available on Android phones and the iPhone. The company also said it has a community of 15,000 developers working to create new games through the platform.

“The net-net here is that we want developers to build more connected games for our customers,” said an AT&T spokeswoman.

OpenFeint is a competitor to Apple’s social gaming platform, Game Center. That app, which is available on the iPhone and iPod Touch, was launched last September.

The move also reflects the growing importance of mobile gaming. Before smartphones gained popularity, mobile gaming was a technologically inferior experience compared to gaming devices like Nintendo and Sony PlayStation, said Peter Relan, executive chairman of OpenFeint.

“It’s an unstoppable locomotive with huge momentum,” said Mr. Relan. “It’s better value on a pervasive device.”(Source:blogs.wsj)
