Nokia drops price on N-Gage

Retail outlets will sell cell phone/game deck hybrid, previously priced at $199, for $99.

Nokia is apparently hoping the luck of the Irish will rub off on the poorly selling N-Gage QD. The mobile-communications monolith announced this week that as of March 17, St. Patrick's Day, retail outlets will sell its cell phone/game deck hybrid for just $99. Currently listed at $199, the QD was previously available for $99 only with the purchase of a one-year service contract from select carriers.

To further entice gamers to try the QD, Nokia announced that it's cutting the prices of N-Gage games. As of today, the previous standard price of $34.99 for N-Gage games will be lowered to a variable price range of $14.99 to $24.99, depending on the game. Nokia's announcement also said that the forthcoming "Splinter Cell Chaos Theory" will be "the first new N-Gage game to launch with the adjusted pricing levels."
