Subscription Gaming Service GameTanium Now Availble For Select Verizon Android Devices
Verizon has announced the launch of GameTanium, a subscription based gaming service, for select Verizon Android phones and tablets. For a monthly fee of $5.99, Verizon customers will have unlimited access to more than 100 Android smartphone games and more than 50 tablet games, including hits like Doodle God, Fruit Ninja and World of Goo. While I’m not a fan of subscription services, if GameTanium stays up-to-date with the latest hit Android games, it could save users the hassle of trying to figure out what games to buy, as well as save them a bit of money.
While it’s an optional download at this point, I can see it becoming a pre-loaded app in the very near future. As of right now, the GameTanium app can be downloaded from Verizon Apps on more than 30 Android smartphones and two Android tablets. If you’re a Verizon customer and interested in something like GameTanium, you can read the full presser below for more information.
