Pokémon Go, the game which is setting records and currently can be considered as the “Most Popular Game” around the world. People are going crazy in search of Pokémon around their location. Also, we did see few accidents and crashes happening because of this crazy game!
The app launched in the US, Australia, and New Zealand last week, but its popularity took game-makers Niantic by surprise, and the company “paused” the title’s rollout while its servers recovered. The wait should be over soon, though, with The Wall Street Journal reporting that Pokémon Go will launch Europe and Asia “within a few days.” There’s no official comment on this timeframe, with the WSJciting “people familiar with plans for the game.”
USERS HAVE BEEN INSTALLING MALWARE-INFECTED CLONES IN THEIR KEENNESS TO PLAY
Users in countries like the UK have been able to play Pokémon Go already, but only by skirting official channels. Android users can sideload the app directly onto their devices, while iPhone owners have been able to get their hands on the game by creating a new Apple ID that uses a US, Australian, or New Zealand region.
Fans’ keenness to play is having a damaging effect though, with various malware-infected clones of the app popping up on the web and infecting users’ smartphones. Meanwhile, Nintendo itself is doing just fine from all the hype, with the company’s stock price surging 25 percent in the last couple of days. Let’s hope that enthusiasm will translate into better support for the game. You can also play and download Pokemon Go for PC which is awesome too!
I am an Asian so I will be waiting for its Official release instead of going mad with the pirated apk and end up infecting my device. I also suggest those who are still waiting to wait a little more and you will have your fruit soon! 😀 Cheers!
