While Gameloft seems content to hold their high-quality 3D gaming titles out of the Android Market, EA Games is jumping right in with the release of Need for Speed: Shift. Already available as an exclusive on some handsets, the action-packed racer priced at $4.99 features 20 cars to choose from, from the BMW M3 GT2 to the Lamborghini Gallardo. Eighteen tracks in three locales should offer many hours of gameplay.
EA has plans to bring more 3D titles to the market, with Madden 11 coming sometime next year at the very least. Hopefully more will follow shortly, and EA’s confidence in the Android Market may spark a change of heart from Gameloft.
