Responding to Uproar, Nokia Promises N-Gage Transfers

Nokia came under fire this past week when it was revealed that folks who purchase a mobile game from its N-Gage site lose the game if they upgrade to a new phone.

However, Pocket Gamer reports, Nokia actually listened to its customers’ complaints.

In addition to apologizing for the confusion it created for consumers, Nokia said that it’s working on a solution that will let users transfer their N-Gage games to a new Nokia device. Not only that, but the company is working with its Care Centers to offer “an intermediate solution to enable the licensed transfers of games until a final solution is ready to be deployed.”
