N-Gage 2?

Ha ha, you wanna hear something funny?

Nokia N-Gage 2.

There there, did that make you laugh? :D

I'm looking for more information on it, just gimme a sec.

And by the way, their site sucks. So if they maintain their game console/cellphone like they maintain their site then it is going to suck hard.

Ha ha ha, I just watched their video, and their slogan right now is "When it comes to N-Gage, all roads lead to play." And they have this woman saying it, its so silly because she is definitely NOT excited about it at all.

Anyway, apparently the details from the flash video they have hidden on the site is that its just a cellphone with an achievement-like system set up including gaming profiles with your friends.

Check it out:

That's about it. The system looks to be tastefully done, and are apparently backed by EA's Mobile division and some company GameLoft which seems to be a development company purely devoted to mobile play.

What do I think? This is crap. The system may work well, but this won't compare with the new Apple Iphone, there is just too much hype to compete against. What would make this system great is if your friends would actually buy it, and right now, I don't think that's going to happen. They need a new marketing division. Even Sony's guerilla marketing (Youtube video : "All I want for Christmas is a PSP") is better than this.
