Sony Ericsson K500 Camera Phones to Feature Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow in 3D.
Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow features outstanding 3D graphic quality, which comes alive on the Sony Ericsson K500 thanks to the fast and smooth game play assured by the Java 2.0 and Mascot Capsule(R) Engine Micro3D Edition from HI Corp graphics platform especially created for fast-action, graphics-rich mobile applications. The large 1.9 inch 65K TFT color screen and MultiAction(TM) joystick make it a pleasure to view and play games. The K500 has enough internal memory (12MB) to store up to 170 2D or 45 3D games.
"We're very excited with the arrival of 3D. This feature will bring mobile gaming to a new dimension and Sony Ericsson is an outstanding partner for the launch of the first mobile games in 3D," says Michel Guillemot, President at Gameloft. "The original Java 1.0 version of Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell was downloaded more than a million times worldwide and has been a huge success across all major gaming platforms, and we expect as much of its follow-up."
Sony Ericsson and Gameloft have partnered to develop a range of 3D games, including Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell Pandora Tomorrow during 2004.
