Graeme Oxby, Marketing Director, 3: "As the success of our music service demonstrates with over 10 million downloads in 6 months, 3 has learnt how to package and deliver compelling products over 3G. In Gaming, we are doing the same thing - picking the right games for 3G and delivering services that are immediate, fun and accessible at affordable prices."
Games on 3
3 is the only UK operator to offer customers the choice of buying and renting games. With the RENT option customers pay 25p per play, or 50p for up to three days of play on a game, this offer which is unique to 3 is proving popular with customers who want to sample a game before buying it.
With the BUY option customers make a one off payment, of between £3 and £7.50 and then have continuous use of the game on their video mobile. The near console quality games that are initially only available on certain models of handset cost £7.50.
