ngmoco brings Mobage network to AT&T

Deal gives AT&T customers access to Android social gaming network

ngmoco has announced a deal to bring the Mobage social gaming platform to the customers of telecomms giant AT&T.

Mobage is an attempt to offer a social portal for first and third party games to Android users. It has already attracted 30 million users in Japan, and a beta version recently rolled out in English speaking countries all over the world.

"Games are consistently among the most popular entertainment apps for smartphones," said AT&T vice president Ted Woodbery in a statement.

"We are pleased to be the first U.S. wireless carrier to work with ngmoco and look forward to giving our Android customers access to the rich Mobage gaming catalog later this year."

In a recent interview with GamesIndustry.biz, ngmoco's Alan Yu stated his confidence in the continued growth of the Android market, and Mobage's potential for success.

"You can't ignore the sheer size that Android has now and will have in the future," he said. "It's basically the size of the market, right? Our bet is that Mobage will be the consumers brand that people can go to to discover these games."

ngmoco's parent company DeNA recently posted record-breaking second quarter revenue of $444 million.
