The Mobile Media Company has announced the launch of real-time multiplayer games with Hutchison 3G in Italy launching games from leading games companies Viva La Mobile and Mobile Interaction.
"Real-time multiplayer gaming provides for a very compelling user experience while showcasing the amazing capabilities of 3G," explained Jan Tore Klepp, Executive VP at Mobile Media. "3G networks offer a true multi-player experience so that, for instance, users in different parts of the world could be racing cars in a game against each other on their mobile handsets, without pauses or breaks that would spoil the action. This is a major step-up from traditional turn-based games such as card and strategy games."
Mobile Media's proprietary technology provides operators with a single point of integration that enables multiple platforms to be linked into the company's MoConDi platform. "This dramatically reduces the strain on the operator's resources and the costs involved in launching multiplayer games, and we can also launch new games far more quickly," added Klepp.
Mobile Media is now actively looking for innovative partners who are developing real-time multiplayer platforms and games. "We are live with Hutchison 3G in all corners of the world," concluded Klepp. "As such we can serve as a crucial test bed for the real-time capabilities, for once Mobile Media has tested the platform, the games and the capabilities, the all important road to launch is very, very close."
