“We’ve taken GameTap on the road and hosted a few thousand gamers through our experiential marketing programs, and now we’re ready to take
GameTap to a mainstream audience,” said GameTap General Manager Stuart Snyder. “GameTap puts an entire library worth of games-both current and
classic -at your finger tips. The game community, and for that matter the Internet itself, has never seen anything like it.”
