SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Nov 8, 2012) - PlayMG™ Corp. announced today that its new MG app-gaming system is now available and shipping from Amazon.com and PlayMG.com at a special holiday wish list price of $149 (MG suggested retail price is $169.)
The MG was specifically designed to fill a void currently experienced by young people who are not old enough to have their own smartphones, or whose parents have found data plans costs prohibitive. Unlike the Nintendo 3DS or Sony Vita, the MG does not demand expensive $40+ cartridge games, and enables young people to enter the world of free, portable app play. MG delivers a sophisticated, sleek look, unlimited expandable memory and many other unique new features in the mobile games category. Opposed to the bulkiness of tablets, the MG was created to be sturdy, ultra portable and pocket-sized -- providing portable app play anywhere and everywhere.
MG is already topping holiday gift wish lists and is as appealing to moms as it is to kids. According to Mom Blogger Jeannette Fender of J-Man and Miller Bug, "Ever since I made the switch to a smartphone, my 10 year-old is always asking to play games on it. And while that is fine, I really wanted something that could be HIS. We weren't ready for him to have his own phone yet, but wanted a way for him to have fun and start learning the responsibility of having his own gadget. Since we got the MG, he has not asked for my phone a single time. In fact, my phone is now 'lame' to him because he has something so much better. I haven't even seen him look at his other gaming systems since it arrived. Thanks MG for giving us a great compromise that allows him to feel grown up without giving him access to things we're not ready for yet."
Mom Blogger Tara Kramarsky of A Spectacled Owl agrees: "My kids all love the MG and I love getting my phone back. My 13 year-old son likes to play all the great sports games, my 9 year-old daughter likes the mobile art apps and their four-year-old little brother loves watching his favorite shows and movies on the MG."
The MG comes with 11 games from top developers; built-in Wi-Fi; a big 4" touchscreen with rounded corners and grip providing a perfect hold on the app-play experience; 4GB of built-in memory and an 8GB SD card (this is an important advantage as many smartphones, tablets and even the iPod Touch carry a higher suggested retail price than the MG, but offer only a fixed memory with no ability to ever expand it). The MG Family Collaboration System includes a "Digital Wallet" and "Remote Trust" notification functions new to the mobile gaming space.
