Good news for 20+ million European gamers

Game Entertainment Europe (GEE), the first pan-European publisher of Massive Multiplayer Online (MMO) Games, and Spill group, the largest game traffic generator in the world, signed a promotion contract which states that SPILL GROUP promotes the MMO Games published by GEE on all of their European portals and in return Spill group receives a revenue share. The contract is already effective, GEE’s latest MMORP Game Martial Heroes can now be played through Spill group’s European portals such as http://www.agame.com/, http://www.spelletjes.nl/, http://www.jeux.fr/. The first results are excellent, after 4 weeks promotion in The Netherlands GEE’s game Martial Heroes has 35.000 new registrations. Soon other online games will follow.

The MMO Games that GEE publishes are of great graphical quality and deserve a wide audience. The MMO Games are being developed in Korea. Since Spill group’s monthly reach is still growing massively and is up to more than 25 million unique visitors per month globally, both parties are excited about the cooperation.

Game Entertainment Europe offers online community games (MMO Games) to gamers in Europe. To offer the best game experience, the games are localised for the European countries. Game Entertainment Europe organises online billing, game mastering, user and community support as well as in-game events. The company’s head office is based in Amsterdam and recently opened an office in Korea. Game Entertainment is also participating in a chain of European game cafes.

Currently, the company develops and runs more than forty gaming portals in European and Asia. Over 25 million unique visitors per month look for gaming entertainment on the Spill Group’s game portals.

Over in Finland
It looks like Nokia is going at it again. Having launched the game mobile N-Gage, the mobile has not been the success, the makers dreamt of. Now Nokia is re-defining the mobile gaming experience, still using the N-Gage. Starting in 2007, Nokia will allow consumers to easily find, buy, play and manage great quality mobile games on upcoming Nokia Nseries multimedia computers and other Nokia S60 devices. Consumers will be able to connect to the N-Gage Arena, Nokia's mobile, global gaming community. Nokia is working with the world's leading publishers, including Electronic Arts and Gameloft, to deliver a broad portfolio of games.

Nokia and the Finnish telecom company Elisa have announced that they will carry out a pilot of Nokia's new N-Gage mobile gaming service. The pilot will start in February 2007 and run until mid 2007.

Elisa will combine its existing mobile gaming platform with the Nokia N-Gage gaming platform and carry out intensive testing and evaluation in a live network environment. Nokia and Elisa will work together to bring a superior mobile gaming experience for Elisa customers. Nokia device owners can look forward to improved game quality, outstanding performance and an intuitive way to get games.

With the scheduled launch in mid 2007, Nokia's next generation mobile gaming platform makes it easy for people to find, buy, play and share rich and immersive games on a range of Nokia devices. Elisa intends to support the launch with a full service offering through its own portals in addition to the N-Gage application installed on Nokia devices.
