GameMobile.co.uk Charts Global Top of the Pops for Mobile Games

2008-01-14


January 14, 2008, Press Dispensary. Game Mobile (http://www.gamemobile.co.uk), one of the largest mobile games portals on the internet, has launched the first weekly top 20 chart to reveal mobile gamers' favourite games from all over the world.

Filling an industry gap for a weekly chart compiled from global downloads, rather than country or mobile network specific sales, the chart - published every Friday at 2pm - tracks movements up and down, as well as peak positions, to give a true picture of the most popular mobile games.

Recent research predicts that the mobile games market will be worth US$10 billion by 2009, with game downloads overtaking ring tones in many Western European markets. *

As mobile gaming hits the mass-market, Game Mobile’s chart is in pole position to become the industry number one, recording the most accurate and up to date mobile gaming activity. The chart is produced in an RSS standard form so that other sites can pull through and publish the data on a weekly basis.

Richard Hawley, director of Game Mobile, says: “With a potential user base of well over 400 million mobile phones worldwide, we are about to witness an explosion of games for mobile phones. Our chart will provide a truly global marker of the most popular games as the mobile gaming market goes mainstream.”

Game Mobile was one of the first online portals for mobile games, applications, software, ring tones & wallpaper. All games and other content are fully tested, and a range of free content can be downloaded from the site to tempt new gamers.

Customers receive loyalty credits with every purchase, which can be traded for games, ring tones or wallpaper. Unlike other companies, Game Mobile does not charge a subscription or registration fee, and each customer is given a personalised account page, designed around their individual mobile phone.

The Game Mobile chart can be seen at http://www.gamemobile.co.uk/gamemobile-games-chart.htm, with the RSS feed at http://www.gamemobile.co.uk/rss/gamemobile_games_chart.rss
