Posted by at 3:39 pm on August 23, 2010

Verizon and its games-on-demand partner Exent have launched a major redesign of the Verizon Games service portal and desktop application. The new app delivers a more intuitive and interactive experience for customers exploring the world’s largest PC games-on-demand subscription service, with more than 1,500 game choices. Drawing on insights and feedback from its network of users and on-demand game service providers, Exent designed an animated and easy-to-use game-navigation service. Unlike other game services, the new Verizon Games app, built with GameTanium, creates a more engaging, game-like environment designed to appeal to a mass-market audience.

Verizon Games also gives new customers a 14-day free trial of the service, with unlimited access to all the games in the online catalogue. Customers have the option of canceling their subscription at any time.

As the newest gaming solution on the market, Verizon’s on-demand app is designed to captivate gamers at all levels, from first-time players to veteran or core game players.

“The early positive feedback from our test gamers has been overwhelming, and we’ve been looking forward to the opportunity to open up the new Verizon Games experience to all of our customers,” said Jason Henderson, games product manager at Verizon. “With the new app and website, people will get the same unparalleled customer experience from their PC games service as they do from Verizon’s TV, Internet and phone services.”

The new games service captures the essence of touch-screen devices, with its animated, fluid interface and a unique, curved layout. Users can browse the entire catalog of games without having to jump from page to page or constantly click the “back” button to return to a main page. The new app also aims to deliver a rich gaming-community program that has become a very popular and valuable service for users. Once users have created their profile, they can create an avatar, decorate their own 3D animated Verizon Games Lounge with virtual items and earn trophies and Prize Points while playing games on the service.

In addition to traditional subscription packages, the Verizon Games app offers additional purchase options including one-hour test drives and direct purchase and download of players’ favorite games.
