I thought this was worth mentioning, having received a press release from the company involved, which is admittedly a bit out of date, but here we go:
A device called the GamesGadget is due for release soon, and its main purpose is to allow portable, on-the-go gaming. It can run games in various formats. What does this mean for us, as a freeware gaming community? Well, it's not inconceivable to believe that the device could run EXE files, meaning that programs created with The Games Factory and MMF2 could potentially be compatible with it.
The GamesGadget will also have an iTunes-style store, allowing developers to submit their games for free, and to charge whatever they want for them to be made available to download. Assumptions are to be made that Blaze, the company behind the GamesGadget (and also behind the portable Mega Drive released in the UK a couple of years ago) would take a small portion of the profit.
Still, this is exciting news for game developers, but is it likely to seriously compete in a high-stakes environment populated by iTunes and Android? It probably is a bit doubtful, but I personally would love to see some of my old games on the system again... just imagine playing Eternal Daughter, Duel Toys 2, etc, while on the bog :)
