GameTanium Introduces Android Users to Subscription Based All-You-Can-Eat Gaming


Exclusive gaming app-markets like Nvidia’s Tegra Zone or Qualcomm’s upcoming Game Pack App Store seem to be a new trend in Android. And we’re all pretty used to all-you-can-eat subscription based services like Netflix for movies, Spotify for music but what if you were to combine those two ideas into one? What would you end up with? Well, it would probably be something similar to what New York City based Exent has in mind.

Exent is hoping customers will catch on to the idea of their new subscription based gaming market called GameTanium Mobile for Android. This service is built off their existing subscription service for online PC games and gives unlimited access to their library of over 75 hand picked Android games, all for $5 a month. No more downloading games and paying for them ala carte. Their whole game library would be yours to access and play to your heart’s content.

As a self-proclaimed “gamer,” I was a little wary about this new service and how it would work for me. But if you think about it, mobile games are becoming more in depth (Battleheart, Inotia 3, etc.) and many Android users are devoting countless hours to these games and they’re using more than one device whether it be a smartphone, PC and/or a tablet. Exent’s GameTanium offers the ability to take your save data with you, no matter which device you’re using. This feature alone seems like one of the key selling points for Android gaming enthusiasts everywhere.

Still not sold? Well, maybe the possibility of playing games from Extent’s current partners like Ubisoft and Popcap may sway you. Exent hopes to build on their existing library and have over 200 games available by year’s end. Not too shabby.

I’m still not sure how well a subscription based gaming market will catch on for the masses but if they can get some triple “A” Android titles in there, I think it might have a shot. How about you guys? How does $5 a month for unlimited Android/tablet/PC gaming sound to you?

  1. love it. just not limited to US would be great.

    1. Yeah, I think it’s an idea that can really take off. As long as they have the quality titles..

  2. Another great article, well done Chris

    also, ubisoft ftw

    1. LOL! Thanks, man :D

      And yeah, Ubisoft and Konami pretty much sold me… =p

  3. why would i want this for android? there’s an anemic amount of high quality games for android OS. if this was for iOS, this would be a more valuable service since there’s quality games for iOS all the time constantly.

    1. theres a lot

  4. If its 5 dollars then yea.. worth it. But in the UK it will be £5 no doubt which will be a bit costly. It will live or die on its games offerings – no one is going to pay for pap.

  5. taking save data with me??? OMG GIEF!!!!
    I hate it when I delete a game(Cos my phone is running low on storage space, yesh I am looking at you: apps with no move to SD-card option)
    And later when I want to pick it up again, I have to start from scratch again.

    Sure there may be options to back the save data to my SD card, but as far as I know, those options come with a price of their own

  6. This would be awesome…..I would def subscribe…where do i sign up

  7. sound like something i might look into! @chris chavez what ever happen to my google plus invite via twitter? its cool i’m up and running now:) you just got so big in the android world now. i miss the G1 days when you could answer all my question with no problem. anybody need a invite let me know.
