Nokia has acknowledged that it will be shuttering its N-Gage gaming service next year. Gamers will be able to download and purchase games that have already been published on the N-Gage platform through September 2010, and the N-Gage community web site will remain open until the end of 2010. Nokia said that it will no longer publish new games for the N-Gage service. N-Gage started life as a hardware-based gaming platform, and later moved online. After N-Gage is fully shut down, games will only be available from the Ovi Store.

N-Gage?

I haven't seen, read or even heard about the N-Gage for at least two years. For all I knew I thought it was looong gone. I worked for a video game retailer back in 2005 and they were just finishing ridding themselves of all the games.
They're talking about the platform, not the service. They wanted to bring gaming to S60 under the N-Gage brand. Games will still be availabe, now only through Ovi.
Nokia isn't very good at marketing, especially in the
U.S.
