    Not "ngage.com"... That's some crappy search-site/click-grabber. Do you mean one of the sites mentioned earlier in this thread? The one that has the 15% off sale by chance?
    ngage.com uses letstalk.com to sell their n-gage games. yes its the 15% off when you buy more than 3 games and free shipping. its directly conected to the n-gage.com site. People have given them mixed reviews but right now it seems to be the only choice and last time i used them i had no problem at all.

    To be clear to others, ngage.com doesn't. The correct URL is n-gage.com.

    But I know the letstalk.com site...

    yes its the 15% off when you buy more than 3 games and free shipping.
    ...and it's the one I was thinking of; cool.

    I've only ordered once, and I had no problems either. I must not have noticed how close to release Catan was, else I should have waited, or preordered. Now I've gotta go back in! :-)

    GameStation seem to be making a very small effort to stay on top of Ngage related things...

    Following their dire efforts to sell ECW and Worms at 34.99, they now have copies of Glimmerati in stock, again, at 34.99...

    Luckily, I purchased my sealed one for littlle over a tenner from eBay!


    I just wish that there could be one dedicated seller of Ngage games on eBay (One which doesn't originate from Hong Kong)


    I also make a weekly phone call to my local Comet to see if they have yet dropped their prices for the games they have, but no such luck. They seem confident that they will sell them at 39.99...

    When any of guys buy Catan, can you please take a pic? I don't want to order it until I know they are actually shipping.

    So are Ngage games released at the exact same time around the world? So does this list also apply to here in the UK, as I can't seem to find a UK specific one...

    I don't know but this UK site says August 25th

    You guys are also getting the limited edition Silver QD. It won't be getting any kind of US release.

    I don't believe Catan is out yet...at their booth at Gencon, all they had were video screens showing the game...not a playable demo as of yet. The game looks good, looks to be a version of the wonderful board game. There were never many people at the NGage booth (I saw several of the helpers napping throughout the day), but people who stopped were being pleasantly surprised by their offerings.

    Wouldn't that just technically be a silver fascia though? not really a true LE in my eyes. At the end of the day, it's still a QD, which is still inferior to the original cornish pie model...

    Well for anyone interested here it is. At the end of the day I guess it is just a silver faceplate but that's what happens when you have cell phone roots. At least they made an attempt at being an LE with the tin and MMC game case. I'd like to get one since I use my QD everyday and it shows. It'd be nice to have one in good condition just for the collection.

    Catan and System Rush are now listed as available on their site. Has anybody actually received either of these games yet? If they are online only, I don't want to miss them but as far as I can tell, neither has shipped yet.

    I don't see where they are listed as available. Everything I see has them listed for September. I've also heard September 22 to be the exact release date but who know with Nokias constant delays.

    I can't wait for this next batch of games I've been playing the System Rush demo and I think its looking to be a fine new racing game for the N-Gage. The Catan demo should be out within the next week too.

    Getting there with my N-Gage collection. Only a few more to get now, until the new ones get released. May also have King Of Fighters Extreme on it's way next week too...

    noticed on the game photos site that someone got a system rush review copy...so maybe thats a sign the games are coming?

    also just called to check the status of my order on letstalk and was told system rush and catan have been pushed back to 10-7, even though they are listed as 'in stock' on the companies website...

    yeah I got that email too. The site has System Rush and Catan on the front page as out now but the order page still has them as backordered.

    Kids over on the N-Gage boards who live over seas have been able to buy both so it looks like they are out now at least overseas.

    Gemini-Phoenix:

    Nice freakin' collection! Seeing all of those N-Gage games lined up looks very cool! I must attempt to complete my collection as well...

    And, Sega Rally! Horrible game, but awesome collectable you have there!
