CTIA: InfoSpace and Activision go hand in hand

September 13th, 2006 by Arjan Olsder Posted in Brand Licensing | No Comments »

We have seen Activision‘s titles pop up with several big developers, but InfoSpace seems to be on the winning side as they just inked another new deal with them. With the deal, InfoSpace has secured the rights for two Tony Hawk games (Project 8, Downhill Jam), Gun, and vintage titles Pitfall 1 & 2, Commando, Freeway, Keystone Kapers, Seaquest, Spider Fighter and more… Most of these ‘vintage’ titles will be bundled. According to the pressrelease it should be one pack, but filesize wise, we expect a few packs.

"As mobile technology continues to evolve and with the increasing availability of 3G handsets, mobile gaming now enables more powerful and dynamic gameplay experiences.,” said Stephen Davis, president, mobile & online media for InfoSpace. “We’re excited to work with Activision to develop the coveted Tony Hawk brand for mobile as well as their most popular sport and adventure titles, offering fans the chance to test their skills and enjoy their favourite games while on the go.”

“There’s no denying the market penetration of cell phones, which makes mobile games a great way to extend our console brands,” said David Anderson, senior director of business development for Activision. “InfoSpace is a leading mobile content, distribution and delivery company, and we look forward to building a successful relationship that puts some of our top titles in the hands of mobile gamers.”
