[df-subtitle]Customers can sign up for launch notifications[/df-subtitle]
Head to the Google Play store today and you’ll find that you can now pre-register for apps before they are released. Specifically, you can pre-register for the Glu Mobile game for Terminator Genisys: Revolution.
With no expected launch date listed we would assume the game debuts within a short window of time centered around the film’s premier date (July 1). Simply tap or click the button that says “pre-register” and you’ll be added to a list of people who want to be notified of the app’s release.
It’s worth noting that the expected price is not listed with the game. Should you decide that you ultimately don’t care to be notified, you can cancel the request at any time.
We like the idea of pre-registering for games and are anxious to learn more about the new feature. As consider the possibilities we have a new number questions, too.
- Will this be offered to select developers?
- How can developers get in the program?
- Will this open the door to pre-registered bonus content?
- Could pre-registered customers receive a discount?
We suspect that we’ll learn plenty more about pre-registration of apps and games in the coming days and weeks. If not a blog post or mention on Google+ perhaps something at Google I/O later this month.
