Need for Speed Shift Coming to Android Market on June 4

Android Market has been growing at an impressive pace and as more and more manufacturers begin embracing Android, the growth curve will only get steeper. However, one area where the Android Market falls short is the availability of high quality games.


The good news is that things may be about to change for Android users. EA Games has announced that it will be bringing its popular racing franchise Need for Speed to the Android platform soon. The newest game in the series – Need for Speed: Shift, will be launched on June 4, which also happens to be HTC EVO’s launch date.

Very little else is known about the game. In fact, EA hasn’t even released any screenshot of the game. However, let’s hope that this time around EA has paid attention to detail. Their previous releases including The Sims 3 and Spore Origins were bug ridden and prone to force closes.

If you are a racing game fan and the wait seems too long for you, then don’t worry. Storm 8’s Racing Live should keep for hooked for the weeks to come. Racing Live is a free Massively Multiplayer Online Racing game that allows you to challenge racers from around the world.

    I have always enjoyed Need for Speed games of the past. So I'm happy to see that this franchise is making its mark on cell phones too. Now when I finally upgrade to a smart phone I'll have some decent games to play.
