[Qualcomm announces support to extend Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision onto the BREW platform.]
San Diego, BREW 2006 -- QUALCOMM Incorporated today announced that it would extend Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision onto the BREW platform. This collaboration supports Microsoft's recent commitment to provide a unified gaming universe spanning multiple devices and platforms, currently including MSN Games, Xbox Live -- including Xbox Live Arcade, MSN Messenger, Windows Operating System and soon to mobile devices. Today, at the BREW 2006 Conference in San Diego, Microsoft and QUALCOMM will provide a glimpse into the integrated, high-quality, mobile gaming experience to come on the BREW platform.
Announced by Bill Gates at the recent Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision puts consumers at the center of an always-on world where games, digital entertainment and friends are always accessible through a consistent gaming interface -- regardless if the game is being played on the Xbox 360, on MSN Games, on a BREW handset or on other platforms and devices. Mobile devices will play a fundamental role in Microsoft's vision, not only as a gaming device, but also as a platform for its gaming communities to communicate and interact.
As one of the leading platforms for mobile gaming, QUALCOMM's BREW solution will play a critical role in this initiative. It supports the latest mobile handsets operating on high-speed networks that allow for the download of graphically impressive, high-performance 2D and 3D games, and it provides a proven global revenue-generating ecosystem for publishers and developers. Microsoft's "Live Anywhere" vision will be brought to life for the multitudes of mobile gamers on BREW handsets by leveraging the power of QUALCOMM's uiOne(TM) and deliveryOne(TM) technologies, and by working with the key players in the global wireless value chain that support BREW -- consisting of operators, handset manufacturers, publishers and developers.
For those BREW 2006 Conference attendees interested in more information, Early will give a presentation entitled, "What Microsoft's 'Live Anywhere' Vision Means for Mobile Games," on Thursday, June 1 from 2:45 - 3:45 p.m. PDT at the Manchester Grand Hyatt.
