This information is a large step forward for Gameloft and All Users

 

Examples of games located at http://www.gameloft.com/

 

Good news if you're someone who someone who plays any of Gameloft's Android games. Word on the street is that Gameloft has enhanced their DRM to allow patrons to re-download their purchased games on new devices.

 

Previously, you had to go through customer service when you got a new device, but how times have changed.


Gameloft is also pushing out a number of other updates as of late, including launching their games on the Android Market (yippee!).  Realizing that the Market has always let you re-download apps you've purchased to new phones, this change to their DRM is both welcome and makes perfect sense.


The only thing you need to do to get yours games on your new device is a quick stop by the Gameloft website, but know that any .apk files you've got won't work as backups anymore.


So, how's everyone feel about this? Gameloft has some pretty cool games, and now that you don't have to jump through hoops to get them back on your new phone, does anyone think they'll consider purchasing where they haven't before? Or are you waiting for Gameloft to make things easy and actually use the Android Market?

Fantastic step, but I still won't buy their products. Crappy spoofs of real games aren't my cup of tea.

i had tried to get one from them on my incredible about 6 months ago and it wasn't supported. i was a bit turned off by that because it gave me no explanation as to why my device couldn't get the game. haven't tried on my tbolt.

 Not clear of what is the spoof part, I have a number of their games and the only thing I wasnt happy with was that the graphics was limited do to devices performance limits but since the new ,ore power devuces and the HD versions of games being released the games has been getting better.

Gameloft games have issues with Snapdragon Processor...

 

Customer Service was the main down side with Gameloft because you have to go through too much to verify device support or reinstalling on a replacement device.  The new DRM may help a bit and with the Market new criteria the device support will most likely by resolved...

 

I own a number of Gameloft games and they played well on the Droid X but when I received a replacement device the games wouldn't install on new device because of DRM.  Another thing I noticed that the games are not GB compatible just yet but they finally got me going with a number of my issues and I hope bring them to Market will increase the supported devices.

 

As you can see I have a number of Gameloft games on my device....
