As Amazon finally moves into the market of devices meant to help consumers get digital content displayed on their TVs with the release of their Fire TV device, one of the big factors that may influence their success will be apps, including games. We’ve already seen Google’s strategy with Chromecast play out as they slowly dribbled out the ability for services and apps to make use of the device. Amazon appears to have done more work to ensure content is ready with the shipment of the devices, but there is still room for more apps to join the party. One example is Gameloft, which has already started optimizing their titles for use on Fire TV.
Initially, Gameloft has made three titles ready for Fire TV – Asphalt 8: Airborne, Modern Combat 4, and Despicable Me: Minion Rush. Gameloft says they will be optimizing more titles in the future. The company thinks “Amazon’s broad consumer base” will help drive the reach of their titles on the platform and ultimately the success of Fire TV.
Does the ability to access leading game titles, like those from Gameloft, have an impact on your interest in a device like the Amazon Fire TV?
