Verizon Wireless debuts GameTanium: an Android mobile gaming subscription service for $6/month
Verizon Wireless, in partnership with Exent (a “Games on Demand” provider), introduced a new mobile gaming subscription service, called GameTanium. The subscription reportedly provides users with unlimited access to the most famous Android games and will set you back $5.99/month.
According to the company press release, GameTanium is available exclusively to Verizon Wireless customers and will feature an easy-to-use UI, parental controls and no ads. Furthermore, the service will apparently be powered by the operator’s wireless network and will offer more than 100 games (half of which are for tablets).
Kristi Crum, executive director of marketing, Verizon Wireless was quoted as saying: “Working with Exent has enabled us to immerse customers into the mobile gaming frontier and ultimately bring high-quality gaming options powered by 4G LTE.”
GameTanium apps are presumably compatible with about 30 Android smartphones and 2 Android tablets, and can be downloaded from Verizon Apps. Games include popular titles like Doodle God, Fruit Ninja and World of Goo.
