We told you in the last few days about the 'Got Game Port-A-Thon' taking place in Sydney, Australia in December. A further list of dates and locations have just been made public so developers across Asia Pacific who are interested in getting games ready for the January 30th BlackBerry 10 launch event can do so.

The BlackBerry Got Game Port-A-Thon will be taking place in seven major Asia Pacific cities:

  • 3 Dec - Bangkok, Thailand
  • 5 Dec - Sydney, Australia
  • 6 Dec - Singapore
  • 10 Dec - Bandung, Indonesia
  • 12 Dec - Hyderabad, India
  • 14 Dec - Mumbai, India
  • 22 Dec - Hong Kong

Much the same as the online Port-A-Thon, that took place earlier this month, developers will have the opportunity to benefit from gaming specialists who will be on hand to make the porting process as painless as possible - and from what we have already seen that process is pretty easy anyway.

The more games the better! Glad to see RIM putting so much effort into silencing the nay-sayers

You go RIM. Next year is gonna be the year of BB10 and tons of great free games on my Playbook. No longer will I have to go and have to play Angry Birds Star Wars on my Samsung, as it will be on my Playbook.

I really feel Blackberry is where Apple was in the late 90's before they re invented themselves. In a couple years Blackberry is gonna be number one in the world, and we won't have to put up with iCrap anymore.

Free and paid apps are both great. Maybe spend some to enjoy some.
