South Park Goes Mobile


South ParkTHQ Wireless is taking South Park to Europe, launching games, video clips, ring tones, wallpapers, screensavers and MMS.

Meanwhile, Vodafone is still not happy with handset manufacturers, claiming the lack of standards across the industry is inhibiting the mobile content market. “One large content provider spent more than 20 per cent of the development cost of a mobile game on porting the software to the first handset.
