SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwire - Sep 21, 2012) - A startup comprised of electronics, game and social industry veterans who have come together to fuel the redesign of gaming™ by bringing app playing affordably to kids and teens, announces a partnership with award-winning Com2uS to provide eight preloaded games on the all-new MG™ -- the first dedicated Wi-Fi pocketable app playing device for the Android market, launching this holiday season.
Ranked as the number one provider of mobile games in Korea, Com2uS' award-winning games and worldwide reputation as a quality developer and publisher make Com2uS the perfect partner in PlayMG's effort to provide superior gaming content preloaded on the MG.
Com2uS' popular game titles Slice It, Swing Shot, Homerun Battle2, Tiny Farm, Tower Defense, 9 Innings Baseball, Super Action Hero and Derby Days will all be preloaded on the MG.
"We take pride in providing memorable gaming experiences and leading the future in mobile gaming," said Don Lim, General Manager, Com2uS America. "We believe the MG is going to bring portable app gaming to many kids who haven't been able to enjoy it before -- we really wanted to be a part of that."
The preloaded games included on the MG, right out of the box, make its competitive suggested retail price of $169.00 an even greater value. Preloaded games will also be included in all the MGs being rewarded to early adopters visiting Kickstarter through September 27 and pledging as little as $99 to get an MG for this holiday season.
"We think this partnership with Com2uS really delivers on our promise to make a dedicated portable gaming system that affordably brings more game into people's lives," said Taylor Cavanah, PlayMG Founding Partner and Meta Gamer. "I am personally a big fan of Com2uS and think it is fantastic that MG owners can immediately open the box and start playing a variety of games."
The MG fills a huge void currently experienced by kids and teens who either are not old enough to have their own smartphones, or whose parents have found data plans cost prohibitive. The MG system means many kids and teens will finally be able to enter the world of freemium apps, and all of the abilities that come with it, while parents can safely and affordably give it to them. The cost savings and collaboration are only two aspects of the MG's benefits for parents. With the MG, kids will finally stop asking to borrow Mom and Dad's smartphone or tablet.
Com2uS Corporation, established in July 1998, became the first and leading mobile entertainment provider in Korea. Since then, Com2uS has developed a reputation for creating innovative and entertaining games and applications around the world, which are available in over 40 countries in Asia, Europe and North America.
