UK Retail Charts organisation ELSPA will no longer report weekly retail sales of N-Gage games and units (reports Spong.com (http://spong.com/detail/news.asp?mode=news&type=n&cid=&pid=&vid=&prid=8204&n=N-Gage+Dropped+by+ChartTrack)). Nokia are pointing out that the N-Gage is still being counted in exactly the same way as previously, and will still feature in the monthly charts and reports. There may be mitigating circumstances (such as "does this chart include Mobile Phone Stores or just Gaming stores?") but this will not inspire confidence in the marketplace - which is something the N-Gage family needs in abundance.
