I still remember talking about this at the Mobile World Congress in 2008, and it has finally become a reality. You can now buy a N-Gage game from your nearby Nokia Priority Dealer if you are in India. N-Gage games are currently available at Nokia Priority Dealers across 9 cities – Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Chandigarh, Chennai, Delhi (NCR), Hyderabad, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune. These vouchers will hopefully be making their way across the whole of India soon.
There you have it, you no longer need the Internet or a Credit Card to get hold of the latest N-Gage titles. The games will be available in the following denominations. The price may vary for some of them.
- Rupees 49 for a 1 day pass
- Rupees 149 for a 7 day pass
- Rupees 299 for a full license ($6 approximately)
This method is in addition to the Oxicash service that was launched a few weeks ago. I will be heading out to a Nokia store near me to check this out, hopefully I’ll be able to get you some pictures as well.
