Panasonic Rules Japanese the Mobile Phone Gaming industry… and Potentially Match the iPhone’s Supremacy
Outside Japan the iPhone is the leading 3G gaming mobile device, but in Japan, manufacturers like Panasonic fear no shame with potentially equal or better looking mobile phone games.
Today Panasonic organized a press conference to group in one event all handsets announced yesterday by both Softbank and DoCoM.
With graphics equivalent to a PSP, PS1 and NDS on some games, and titles like Ridge Race, Gundam and Professor Layton, Japanese games for mobile phones in Japan really rock!
Thanks to a strong cooperation between manufacturers, game developers, and carriers, companies like Panasonic are can release handsets that can be hooked up to TVs and to offer online gaming services for up to 6 players across Japan and the world (may cost a bit of money with actual data roaming plans) to play games like Gundam together.
Yes, the iPhone and iPod touche are brilliant gaming devices, but we shouldn’t forget about Japanese manufacturers and carriers, that are more than capable to kick some Apple ass. Now if only they would export these babies…
