Mobile games may be a major opportunity for Samsung

Samsung Mobile GamesGalaxy S4 may be ideal platform for mobile games

Gameloft, a developer and publisher of mobile games, has announced its support for the new Samsung Galaxy S4. The Galaxy S4 is the latest iteration of Samsung’s popular line of smartphones. The previous Galaxy S smartphone was release late last year and quickly became the most popular mobile device in the world. The success of the Galaxy S III propelled Samsung in various markets, eventually allowing the company to become more successful than its longtime competitor in the mobile space, Apple.

Gameloft shows support for Galaxy S4

Like other smartphones, the Galaxy S4 is expected to be a very popular platform for mobile games. Mobile games have already proven quite popular with consumers, but developers and publishers are constantly on the lookout for new platforms that can support higher quality games. Gameloft believes that the Galaxy S4 may be such a platform because of the smartphone’s advanced technology. Samsung may agree with this belief.

Samsung continues to warm up to mobile games

Mobile games have become a very prominent part of the mobile space, but companies like Apple and Samsung have not paid much attention to this sector in the past. While Apple features gaming in its marketing for its various mobile devices, the company has not been a public proponent of mobile games. Samsung, however, has shown strong support for mobile games in the past. The company has even gone so far as to release specially designed controllers for its mobile devices that allow consumers to play mobile games more easily.

Gameloft has ambitious plans for Galaxy S4

Given the lucrative nature of mobile games, Samsung may be well inclined to support such games coming from Gameloft. The developer already has 13 mobile games ready for release on the Galaxy S4 and has plans to release many more in the future. Many of the games that Gameloft produces tie in to blockbuster movies, such as Iron Man 3.

Chillingo and Samsung join forces to support mobile games

Mobile Games Samsung and Chillingo partnershipMobile games developers may benefit from new publishing platform

Chillingo, a subsidiary of Electronic Arts that publishes mobile games, has announced its partnership with Samsung this week. The two companies will work together to provide new tools to the mobile games developer community, helping them find the success they crave in a highly competitive industry. Samsung has been showing very strong interest in mobile games recently, backing several initiatives designed to provide better services to independent developers around the world. Electronic Arts also holds an acute interest in mobile games because of the vast potential that can be found throughout the burgeoning market.

Platform offers 100% revenue shares for mobile games developers

Together, Chillingo and Samsung will work to develop a new platform for mobile games developers that will offer them unparalleled revenue opportunities. This platform is called 100% Indie and acts as a community hub where developers can share they games, which are then made widely available to Samsung customers. The new platform will be opened to developers beginning March 4, and will offer them 100% of the revenue they generate through the mobile games that they sell through the platform for the first six months that they are active.

Independent developers receive strong support from consumers

The platform offers higher revenue opportunities for developers than any other platform of its kind in the world. Chillingo believes that the mobile games market is filled with promising developers that often struggle to find the success they need in order to be stable. Many developers are unable to compete with studios that have the backing of large publishers, such as Electronic Arts, but many consumers have fallen in love with the so called “indie” scene, where games are produced and published by their developers rather than through large corporations.

Chillingo expects to see success through new platform

After the first six months a game has been on the 100% India platform, the revenue share that developers have access to will drop. This drop will continue in modest fashion until March 2015, when it will come more in line with the revenue shares offered by other platforms. Chillingo believes that the platform will help expose consumers to very promising mobile games from new developers.
