24 January 2021
In the beginning, devs snuck Tetris into the service menu. Later, Club Nokia would serve as a primitive app store.

We just need mobile gaming too have all the pc games get mobile versions and something like wine for android

I hope gaming smartphones become as capable as gaming laptops or gaming PC's in terms of game compatibility and hardware

      Nokia is the best.

          Nokia app store was the most useless thing ever. Most of my Symbian apps came from random apps forums containing cracked apps.

          I remember playing Worms and Explode Arena much in my Symbian days.

                    I actually would love to see a modernized version of the Xperia Play. I don't mind having the screen size of the Xperia 5 ii or a thicker phone as long as it has a flagship-tier chipset like the SD 865 or the SD 870 and also a built-in game controller. 11 out of 10 I would buy one in a heartbeat!

                          Or is it plugged into an external amplifier / audio system?

                              If sony and their playstation department actually developed a true gaming phone, sucessor to their ill fated xperia play which was not designed in Japan, but by Sony Ericsson instead.

                                Was a huge fan of the Worms game during the Ericsson era, definitely one of the best classics. Shame games like this are now infested with ads or hit a paywall.

                                  I love the Retro Days,when things were complicated,calls, texts,emails were social media,now it's all gone pair shaped,bring back thee5 old days 👍
