Nokia abandons N-Gage gaming

The under-used N-Gage games service from Nokia is closing down, and they're moving them over to Ovi Store by 2010 to keep everything into one area.

Handset maker Nokia plans to shut down its N-Gage games service in 2010, the firm has announced.

N-Gage was a mobile gaming platform launched by Nokia in April 2008 with about 30 games available for download direct to certain Nokia handsets.

No new N-Gage games will be released, although users will be able buy existing games until the end of September 2010.

The N-Gage community website will be available until the end of the year.

N-Gage had a difficult birth - an earlier version which launched in 2003 also failed to capture the market.

In the future all games available to Nokia handset owners will be shifted to its apps store, Ovi Store.

Is it the end of N-Gage? Or will this increase the sales of N-Gage games once it's available from Ovi Store?
