Qualcomm wants you to know they too can have exclusive games; say hello to GameCommand
Along with today’s announcement of Qualcomm’s new S4 Snapdragon processors comes Qualcomm’s answer to the whole NVIDIA Tegra optimized/exclusive game business. Qualcomm has announced GameCommand, an application designed to help users quickly find the latest Snapdragon featured and exclusive games. Expanding on their Snapdragon GamePack, a slew of new games are set to hit the Android Market in early 2012. These new games, which will initially be designed to operate exclusively on devices with Snapdragon processors inlcude:
- “The Ball” from Tripwire Interactive, which has earned several accolades including PC Gamer’s 2010 Action-Adventure Game of the Year, is built on Epic Games’ Unreal Engine 3 and is debuting for the first time ever on mobile
- “Fight Game” Heroes from Khaeon Gamestudio
- “GALAGA Special Edition,” the 30th anniversary edition of the perennial arcade favorite from NAMCO BANDAI Games.
While I’m all for having amazing, console-quality games on my mobile device, this whole processor optimized/exclusive business is bollocks in my opinion. I think it’s a bad distribution model and one that hopefully becomes extinct. Anyway, if your device runs on a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, you now have GameCommand to look forward to. Now go check out “The Ball” below.
