Description


Service Outline

By the game portal site "Game Style" that supports the Java™ of J-Phone, G-mode Co., Ltd., will aim at creating an environment in which the user can enjoy playing games with leisure, with the first target being mobile game beginners to mid-level players. For this reason, the service at first will be to provide a download service where 1 game can be played at a charge of 100 yen to 150 yen (volume-cycled rate structure), and there is no need for such as member registration of the user, making it possible to easily purchase games. After the user has become familiar with the world of mobile games by the purchasing of games that can be enjoyed as a stand-alone product, we are also planning in the future to do the delivery of network competition type games (fixed rate structure).

Furthermore, the services that will start at the same time as the release of the model "J-SH07" that supports Java™ will be the 3 sites that are described as follows.
