CES 2011: Recap!

This year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) saw around 140,000 people attend, which absolutely trumped earlier estimations of 126,000 attendees. Gameloft had a steady presence across various partners as well. Since CES has passed, let’s do a quick recap of the exciting event!


We kicked off the busy week with our partnership announcement with Panasonic. Let’s just say we’re set to deliver a slate of games featuring 3D graphics through Connect-enabled VIERA® HDTVs later this year. Hit titles like Asphalt 5N.O.V.A. Near Orbit Vanguard Alliance and UNO are part of the lineup.

This is just one more step Gameloft is taking to show our commitment to providing our community with some of the latest innovative technologies. Gamers can now enjoy a stellar gaming experience directly on their Panasonic VIERA HDTV sets.


Of course, CES is not complete without some fabulous parties! LG Mobile Tech Night was held at Tao Nightclub at the Venetian. During the event LG showed off their new phone, the Optimus 2x. The first phone announced to  run on dual-core 1 GHz NVIDIA Tegra 2 processor, users could expect super fast speeds!

Gameloft had quite a presence with Shrek Kart running. Competitions set attendees against each other and players with the fastest times won various prizes.


During Verizon’s press conference, they announced they were rolling out their Wireless 4G LTE Mobile Broadband network. With 4G LTE, multiplayer takes a faster turn with one of Gameloft’s biggest hits: Let’s Golf! 2.

We were all excited about this announcement particularly because such fast connections could provide an unparalleled gaming experience. 4G LTE will essentially provides speeds up to 10 times faster than Verizon Wireless’ 3G network. 10 TIMES FASTER!


Gameloft even had a cameo at the Qualcomm booth! Gameloft games were available to play in order to demonstrate capabilities of the Snapdragon-powered myTouch 4G. We demoed GT Racing, Splinter Cell: Conviction and Fishing Kings.


We had a presence at the Intel booth, too! Gameloft integrated Intel’s high-speed CE1400 chipset in Let’s Golf! 2, demonstrating a different gaming experience. The CE1400 chipset will be incorporated into set top boxes and connected TVs.

This was particularly great because we had announced our partnership with Panasonic earlier. Imagine playing 3D games powered by Intel across Panasonic television sets! That’s eye candy that’s drool worthy.


While CES 2011 has come to a close, we’re sure you’re buzzing with the announcements. What do you think about Gameloft’s partnerships and their current initiatives? Excited?
