Glu Mobile Games Now Available on Amazon App Store

In a press release today, Glu Mobile Games has announced that they are putting some of their most popular games up for sale on the Amazon App Store that recently launched.  Titles to be put on sale include Diner Dash 2, Call of Duty:Modern Warfare and World Series of Poker (which is the free app for today).

Amazon seems to have done some hard work going after the top developers for Android, getting some good quality apps and games.  It will be interesting to see if they can really give the Google Market a run for it’s money.  Check out the full release after the break.

    “It will be interesting to see if they can really give the Google Market a run for it’s money.” – This should be an page to itself!

    What would happen if Google entirely outsourced the ‘official’ app store to Amazon? Would it matter to Google financially? Would it benefit Android overall?

    But I suppose they havent allowed Amazon’s app (I assume it was submitted?) into the Marketplace so that means they dont want to make it easy for them.

    Funny how Glu has offices in Brazil, yet you can’t buy anything from the Amazon Appstore if you’re not in the United States…
