A couple of months ago, NVIDIA launched its own Tegra Zone for users to download Tegra-optimized games, and now it looks like Qualcomm wants in on the party as well. Qualcomm has just announced the introduction of the Snapdragon Game Pack – a service similar to NVIDIA’s Tegra Zone – the Snapdragon Game Pack is a service that will feature games that have made to work better with Snapdragon devices.
While the games will be available for purchase on the Android Market, Snapdragon Game Pack will help users find those games – with over 200,000 apps available on the Android Market, users could benefit from a helping hand. The service will launch with over 100 titles from video game studios such as Babaroga, Booyah, Com2us USA, Digital Chocolate, Eyelead Software, Glu, Guild Software, NAMCO BANDAI Games America, Gameloft, Natural Motion, Polarbit, Southend Interactive and Tripwire Interactive.
In addition to helping out on the consumer side of things, Qualcomm will also be providing developers with tools that will allow them to take full advantage of the Snapdragon platform with their 3D games. There’s no word on how the Snapdragon Game Pack service will turn out to be (most likely an app or a mobile website), but Qualcomm has hinted at the possibility of it being preloaded on some Android devices. It looks like SoC manufacturers are all looking for ways to attract customers into choosing their platforms over the competition.
