Need for Speed Shift

Jan 28, 2011

Need for Speed has become one of gaming’s most venerable franchises since its inception back in 1994, all the way to its popular heights of today, when it’s getting yearly iterations that regularly top the sales charts. The racing series has also made a major expansion away from just the consoles on to other platforms, including mobile gaming, which now includes Android. Need for Speed Shift, an adaptation of the 2008 simulation-focused Need for Speed series entry, has you racing throughout the world, competing in events to earn money to buy cars and upgrades. The events include more than just typical sprints to the finish, there are also solo time trial events, Eliminator events where the car in last place at the end of the lap is eliminated, and Drift events where your goal is to drift through corners as much as possible to get points.

EA Mobile Adds Need For Speed Shift and Sims 3 to the Android Market

EA Mobile Adds Need For Speed Shift and Sims 3 to the Android Market

Hit titles for Android have been dropping left and right lately and EA Mobile wants to be a part of the action. They recently added two new titles to the Android Market: Need For Speed Shift and The Sims 3. Both titles rank among the top EA games sold this past year, with over 4 million copies sold. Considering their popularity, it only makes sense that EA would choose these titles to drop onto Android. EA has been slow moving when it comes to bringing their games to Android with only 4 total games available in the Android Market. I’m happy to see major game publishers such as EA give Android some love and I hope this recent influx of games for Android continues.
