With mobile gaming experiences already starting to resemble, equal and even surpass what we've come to expect from dedicated mobile and household gaming consoles (we're looking at you NGP), the appeal for gaming on your phone will just keep getting stronger. Qualcomm have said 60% of smartphone users regularly play games and as the next generation of quad-core Adreno GPUs get thrown together with the upper echelons of Snapdragon performance, that percentage will no doubt increase as more and more demanding and engrossing games join the ranks of the Game Pack.
The Snapdragon-optimized games themselves will be made available to the Android community via Android Market and through developer's own stores and the hope is that this will present opportunities for devs to also generate revenue from pre-installs of games as well as market-based games sales.
Qualcomm are responsible for the hardware behind some already impressive looking/running games like Asphalt 6: Adrenaline HD, Assassin's Creed HD, NOVA HD, Tom Clancy's H.A.W.X HD and Real Soccer 2011 HD to name but a few.
