Playing The Android Game
Tablets are an ideal entertainment device for playing games.
(NAPSI)—The only way to know if you are going to like a game is to play it—and it has become much easier to play a game before committing to buy it.
One increasingly popular way to try one out is with a tablet PC. According to Forrester Research, 10.3 million tablets were purchased last year, and Harris Interactive predicts that one in five U.S. consumers will own a tablet computer by 2014.
New mobile game sites such as WildTangent’s Android service offer new ways to play on smartphones or tablets. For example, with the Samsung Galaxy Tab 7.0, the Sony Tablet S or dual-screen Sony Tablet P, or even the ViewSonic ViewPad 7e, game players can get in on the fun.
Tablets provide an ideal gaming experience. And adding a service that lets you rent premium games before committing to buying them is a great way to test out a new game.
Android users may welcome this news, as research says they are more partial to games. The average mobile gamer plays an average of 7.8 hours a month, while Android users spent an average of 9.3 hours per month playing games on their phones.
“Instead of having to purchase a game without knowing if it’s any good, users will have the ability to rent the game for a day. The fee can then be applied to the full purchase price if you choose to buy,” said Tricia Duryee of All-ThingsD.
The rental option will end the era of buying before downloading. Now mobile players can enjoy only those games they truly like.
