Good news if you're someone who someone who plays any of Gameloft's Android games. Word on the street is that Gameloft has enhanced their DRM to allow patrons to re-download their purchased games on new devices. Previously, you had to go through customer service when you got a new device, but how times have changed.
Gameloft is also pushing out a number of other updates as of late, including launching their games on the Android Market (yippee!). Realizing that the Market has always let you re-download apps you've purchased to new phones, this change to their DRM is both welcome and makes perfect sense.
The only thing you need to do to get yours games on your new device is a quick stop by the Gameloft website, but know that any .apk files you've got won't work as backups anymore.
So, how's everyone feel about this? Gameloft has some pretty cool games, and now that you don't have to jump through hoops to get them back on your new phone, does anyone think they'll consider purchasing where they haven't before? Or are you waiting for Gameloft to make things easy and actually use the Android Market?
