|Wireless technology company Terraplay Systems has signed an agreement with Endemol owned company Overloaded, to provide a real-time, multi-player wireless gaming platform. Overloaded is a publisher and distributor of games for mobile handsets using Java, Brew, I-mode and Symbian technology, through major network operators, primarily in Holland, Belgium and Greece, and to a lesser extent, the UK, France, Spain, Italy, Portugal and Germany. The service is due to be launched January 2005.|
'Overloaded has been evaluating multi-player platforms for some time now and we found that Terraplay's powerful and flexible platform gives us the ability to offer multi-player gaming solutions efficiently and effectively over 2.5G and 3G networks today and tomorrow' said Ashu Mathura, Overloaded Managing Director. 'We are the first to roll-out real-time multiplayer mobile games big time to end consumers in the Netherlands, Belgium and Greece and we are sure that they will become a vital extension to our existing game services to end consumers and operators in these regions'.
“We are very excited about this agreement. With this initiative, users will not only have access to true real-time multi-player mobile games from this market leading gaming service, but also to top Endemol TV branded multi-player titles. We are sure that this will be well received by all operators and users connected to the Overloaded billing and delivery platform. It's also excellent news to all our game developers that are developing on the Terraplay platform, as it opens up still more channels to market and increases the presence of the Terraplay technology with key global partners' added Jeremy Lewis, CEO, Terraplay Systems.
