Verizon launches GameTanium - a subscription service for gamers
Currently, GameTanium offers a catalog of about 100 smartphone games and 50 tablet games. After a three-day trial, users will be able to play those games as much as they want for a bearable monthly fee of $5.99 per device, which will appear on your monthly bill. Thankfully, GameTanium isn't only about allowing you to play games. The service is a bit more complete, as it tries to offer you only worthwhile titles, images and user reviews. The downloading process of a game should be seamless, but in case you run into any trouble using the service, you can contact the live Customer Support via phone, SMS chat or email.
GameTanium is available right away through Verizon Apps, which, by Verizon's estimations, is found on about 30 Android smartphones and 2 tablets. Well, obviously GameTanium won't be a very mass-market service, but who knows, if it picks up with Verizon, other carriers might look into partnering with it as well. Of course, the improvement of its game catalog will also be a crucial factor for its success.
