    I -really- need to find a system soon. And get a complete collection, I have a feeling I'll regret it if i don't otherwise.

    The NGAGE will be the second (game.com) system that has come and gone in my lifetime without me caring at all.

    I really want a QD myself. But I'm not willing to pay anything near what they sell for.

    The problem is that its "with a phone plan." If it were practically free, with no strings attached, then I'd buy one in a second. Unfortunately, I haven't seen many selling for less than $50 w/o a contract. I want a gaming system, not a two-year commitment.

    I want to eventually get one of these. I grabbed some cheap games at EB--now I just need a system to play them on!

    The news isn't shocking. The fighting game called "One" looked pretty impressive. If I were Nokia I would can the N-Gage ASAP. Stop bleeding money Nokia!

    Nothing against you in particular, but I always laugh when people make statements like this from the outside. Just pulling hardware off store shelves when you have a few more (final, apparently) apps - including from Sega - would be dumb when you've got way more N-Gages than you need and a possibility to sell them. They should try to sell some of 'em for the game itself. As for the production facility, I *highly* doubt there's been any work done there since the initial batch of QD units came out.

    They'll probably keep selling them for a while, unless they can get some sort of tax rebate for destroying them. It's the beginning of the fiscal year so they've got some time to think about that.

    No surprise of course. This should've happened sooner.

    That's exactly what I want to say.

    I tell people I want a cheap N-Gage they all respond with "it's practically free with a phone plan". I have a phone, I don't want an N-Gage as a phone. I want an N-Gage QD AND and N-Gage original for about 30.00 each or less. I want to play my 10+ cheap N-Gage games I have

    How long have you been at this "collecting" thing?

    Patience, son.

    I hear what you're saying Ed and by no means did I mean to just pull em off the shelves. Of course they should get rid of what they have. I agree with ya.

    Our game shop in Scotland (Edinburgh to be precise!) has just been given a pod with 2 N-Gages and a whole bunch of games to demo as well as lots of stock. From what we can gather Nokia seem to be giving it one last push before the DS and PSP hit our shores in March. Maybe they are just off-loading their crap on us but we're getting it pretty cheap anyway!

    As far as the "free with a phone plan" is concerned... enter your zip code here to find a plan like that. In my area there was a plan to get a QD with service and after rebates pocket $50 bucks.

    http://n-gage.letstalk.com/product/p...vicePrId_26001

    For those who just want a console I'll ask my sons friend if he's still selling his. I could probably hook one of you guys up for around $50/$60 shipped for the original N-Gage he has/had for sale. I think he still has the original packaging too.

    PM if you're interested in this deal and I'll look into it for you. I almost did it myself just for the console but decided it wasn't really something I wanted to play long term.
