PlayPhone is at the heart of a revolution in mobile entertainment. PlayPhone’s next generation mobile gaming platform is experiencing accelerated adoption as carriers increasingly use the social game stores, global gaming network and network currency to instantly participate in the mobile app economy and regain revenues lost with launch of traditional app stores (iOS and Android). Social game stores are already live on Verizon, AT&T, Sprint, Claro, Vivo, TIM, SingTel, Telkomsel and messaging app, Tango, with more coming soon.
Greetings and welcome to PlayPhone?s new Blog. We?re excited to share our thoughts with you on the current and future states of the mobile social gaming industry and PlayPhone?s role in this dynamic category. And since we?d like this to be a 2-way discussion, we welcome your comments as well.
You may have heard our recent announcement about the upcoming launch of Games Portal on Verizon?PlayPhone?s new mobile social gaming destination for Verizon customers. Preloaded on millions of Android devices, Games Portal is Verizon?s socially powered games app store that connects Verizon subscribers to a global gaming community. With deep social features interwoven throughout the gaming experience, we think it?s a fantastic opportunity for game developers to access a major new distribution channel and tap into the powerful monetization and marketing opportunities of a premier global carrier.
We?re also excited about the content coming to Games Portal and would welcome the addition of your game. It?s easy to integrate your game because of PlayPhone?s single integration SDK. To find out more about PlayPhone?s developer program or to be a launch game for Games Portal, visit developer.playphone.com.
And Games Portal is just the beginning. We are anxiously awaiting the upcoming launches of PlayPhone’s social gaming network with more top global carriers over the next year and I’m glad you’ve decided to join us for the ride. This will be the first of many blog posts that will detail PlayPhone and what it is like to run a world-class mobile social gaming company at a crucial time in the evolution of mobile gaming.
Before I go into PlayPhone any further, I?d like to give you a little background about me. My name is Ron Czerny and I am the Founder and CEO of PlayPhone. I?m a long-time gamer and have always had a passion for web and mobile games. I sit on the board for the Mobile Entertainment Forum, founded the Brazilian Video Game Association (did I mention that I?m from Brazil?) and headed Capcom?s video game strategy and distribution for Latin America.
