After years of hyping the sophisticated game play possible onnewer handsets, consumers just yawned. Tetris and Pac-Man remain far and away the bestselling titles on handset. It is not that these familiar and rudimentary titles are particularly good. It is justthat users don't much care whether their mobile games are all that evolved. My theory about the current blandness of the mobile game market is that U.S. users (the situation is differentelsewhere) just don't care enough about playing games on phones. A lot of people do play phone games here and there, but they just don't expect or want to be dazzled by what a developer can do here.Let us just match the damn blocks and eat the bloody dots, and go off and make your 3D RPGs for some other two-inch screen. One study this year found that product involvement in this categoryis so low that even hard core console/PC gamers have much, much lower expectations of their handset games and like to keep it simple and quick on phones. It's as if all of these talented gamedevelopers are hitting their heads against a brick market. In the traditional console game market, fan boys salivate for months over upcoming bleeding edge titles, and their tight buying cycles burnthrough a dozen titles a year. On phones, many of us still play whatever game came free on our year-old handsets. The marketing and consumption cycles are completely different here. A fewcompanies like GameJump want to make a model around consumer indifference to mobile game development by wrapping ads before and after free games. When I tried it again recently, I found the mobile adnetwork technology works well enough. Now you get two ad spots fore and aft. But the direct-to-consumer Web-based model has the same hurdles now it had ten years ago for Web start-ups--finding anaudience in a field of countless choices. I am still not convinced that pricing is the real issue for consumers with mobile games. True, most of us don't value mobile games enough to pay forthem, but then again, most of us don't value mobile games enough to hunt around for them online even if they are free. Of course, a little bit more imagination in casual game design mighthelp. How many variations on swapping jewels and shooting marbles can the market stand? If mobile game developers want to wake up consumers, they might look to their cousins on the handheld consoles.Games like "LocoRoco" on the Sony PSP and "Brain Age" on the DS are genuine innovations that keep it imaginative and simple. In "LocoRoco," you rotate the game world to move a gelatinous blob throughthe levels, with background music that sounds like "It's a Small World" on helium. "Brain Age" is a series of quick brain teaser puzzles that you can drop into for a few seconds at a time. Why can'tmobile game developers try novel designs like this and grab a little free press simply by being different? The handheld console segment seems to have slipped under the radar of in-game andaround-game marketers, but I think it is time they started taking notice of the other mobile gaming world. I can't recall seeing in-game product placements on a DS or PSP, although millions of theseaddictive handhelds have been sold. The best thing that marketers can do is not get in the game so much as around it--to enable and extend the gamer's passion, not interrupt it. Both Heavy.com andGameSpot offered sponsored PSP movie clips and game trailers for free downloading, but Sony itself is only starting to ramp up its wireless portal strategy for the device. Now you can download demosdirectly over the PSP's WiFi collection, and PS3 owners (all three of them) can buy some older Playstation title that have been ported for the PSP and then transfer them to the handheld. There havegot to be many opportunities for sponsors to offer free game add-ons and demos. There is a lot of room for marketing creativity when it comes to people's passions. Nintendo, which does withfinesse and creativity what Sony usually does with sheer marketing throw-weight, is hitting home runs galore with the DS. Last year it partnered with McDonald's so DS owners could use the restaurant'sWiFi free in order to play online multiplayer titles. So where do you think most kids want to go now for dinner out... and then linger... and linger? I would love to sit here this time nextyear and discuss something new and interesting that happened in 2007 in mobile gaming. Game publishers, developers, and the carriers don't really have to look far to see fresh ideas in design andmarketing. Just look over the shoulder of the kid sitting next to you on the train.
