Gameloft today announced that it has become the latest brand to join Sprint's growing line of ID Packs.
The two bundles each bring Sprint consumers four of Gameloft's popular Android games along with direct access to news, updates, and more. Depending on what type of gamer you are, or how powerful your handset is, you can install either the HD Games ID Pack or Top Games ID Pack. And for those who simply cannot decide, Sprint allows users to have up to five ID Packs on each handset.
The HD Games ID Pack is designed to run on Sprint's high-end devices like the Samsung Epic 4G Touch or Motorola Photon 4G and includes high-definition games. Titles include Dungeon Hunter2 HD+, Assassin's Creed HD+, Let's Golf 3, and Order and Chaos Paymium HD+. Should you have a midrange or entry-level handset then you may be interested in the Top Games ID Pack. Games for the bundle include Iron Man 2, Gangstar 2, N.O.V.A., and NFL 2011.
Whether you call the ID Packs value added software, bloatware, or just a bunch of like-minded content, Sprint has offered customers the niche bundles of Android titles for more than a year now. Usually designed around specific brands (CMT, MTV, Disney), or sports (Fantasy Football, ESPN, Golf) themes, users can find wallpaper, ringtones, widgets, apps, and other content.
Honestly, I think that the Sprint ID Packs are a great, free way to get people off and running with titles that they may not have discovered on their own. Have you installed one on your Sprint handset yet? And if you're not with Sprint, would you like to see your carrier employ a similar strategy?
