N-Gage Feedback Forum celebrates first birthday

GLOBAL – This week marks one year since the the N-Gage Feedback Forum first cleared its lungs and screamed into existence. This smart online social media tool enables N-Gage fans to rally together and have their suggestions heard, evaluated by their peers, and ultimately acted upon by the N-Gage team in many cases. We’re stoked to have witnessed its rapid evolution and the amount of engagement it has inspired. Congrats and happy birthday!

We’ve rounded up it’s achievements to date, highlights of what’s in the pipeline, and some of the best suggestions that are planned and under consideration. So read on for a quick snapshot of what the N-Gage development team is working on.

A bunch of suggestions have been acted on, completed, and commented on by the N-Gage team, including the following:

COMPLETED – Use 3D accelerator chip for N-gage Games (720 votes)

“Thanks for the suggestion guys, just to let you know his will be in the next release of the N-Gage SDK so game developers will be able to take full advantage then. As with many of our features it is up to developers to take advantage of these technologies in their games.” N-Gage team
