do you remember the games on it? they were literally all terrible. its bizarre that a company went in on this and didnt even try to outfit it with hardware that could actually run games. keep in mind the psp and ds were out at the same time and the ngage didnt even try to come close to their performance, like not at all. There were literally flash games that ran and performed better than the ones on the ngage
>>322688160 >keep in mind the psp and ds were out at the same time and the ngage didnt even try to come close to their performance, like not at all. Ehh nope. The N-Gage came out in 2003, PSP and NDS came out in 2004[*], so it's obvious the N-Gage couldn't possibly try to cme close to the performance of devices that weren't even out when the N-Gage was. Also, due to its capability, it belongs to the 6th generation, so its handheld "competitor"(not like there was any competion) was the GBA, and in fact they're pretty similar when it comes to performance, so much that Sonic Advance(GBA) and Sonic-N(N-Gage) are the same exact game. PSP and NDS belong to the 7th generation.
[*] You might say that 1 year difference means nothing, but in this case it means a lot, because it was the year handheld entered in the next generation, so the difference is obviously quite big.
Not to mention how the N-Gage was one of the first attempt from Nokia into gaming, so since they knew nothing about it before, they obviously went for A) the easiest solution, and B) were "inspired" by the handheld that were around at that time.
>>322686276 The N-Gage came out LONG before Smartphone did. The problem this was, it wasn't a good phone, and it wasnt a good handheld. It was just sort of there, and was inevitably just sort of forgotten about. Also this was at a time when Nokia thought they could do no wrong.
>>322686160 I remember a guy sitting next to me in science class with one of these, I looked over to see that he was playing the sims and forcing two guys to make out continuously...he was the only person I ever saw with one of these.
>>322690498 >Also this was at a time when Nokia thought they could do no wrong. Believe it or not, it gets much worse than that. Nokia's internal politics and infighting bullshit was famously bad, people would happily run the entire company into the ground and snuff out actually good ideas just to keep themselves relevant for two more years
