List of Gizmondo Games

List Of Gizmondo Games

This is a complete list of games for the Gizmondo handheld game console. Due to Gizmondo’s failure, only 14 games were released. The Gizmondo was launched on March 19, 2005 in Europe. In North America the Gizmondo launched on October 22, 2005. The Gizmondo's sales were poor, with fewer than 25,000 units sold. By February 2006 it was discontinued when Tiger Telematics, the manufacturer of Gizmondo, was forced into bankruptcy. Because of this every game released in North America was a launch title, and all other games in development were never released.

Certain games were capable of using augmented reality, most notably the unreleased game Colors. It was intended to be the first GPS video game, with the ability to track a user's real world movements in real time. Additionally several games including Motocross 2005, Hockey Rage 2005, and Sticky Balls had bluetooth multiplayer features. The accessibility to purchase Gizmondo games was limited. In the United States, games were only available through a small numbers of kiosks located in shopping malls across the country. But after Tiger Telematic's bankruptcy, the Gizmondo and its games were left without any proper marketing or distribution.

Famous quotes containing the words list of, list and/or games:

    Thirty—the promise of a decade of loneliness, a thinning list of single men to know, a thinning brief-case of enthusiasm, thinning hair.
    F. Scott Fitzgerald (1896–1940)

    I am opposed to writing about the private lives of living authors and psychoanalyzing them while they are alive. Criticism is getting all mixed up with a combination of the Junior F.B.I.- men, discards from Freud and Jung and a sort of Columnist peep- hole and missing laundry list school.... Every young English professor sees gold in them dirty sheets now. Imagine what they can do with the soiled sheets of four legal beds by the same writer and you can see why their tongues are slavering.
    Ernest Hemingway (1899–1961)

    Whatever games are played with us, we must play no games with ourselves, but deal in our privacy with the last honesty and truth.
    Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803–1882)
