RealNetworks Goes Gold with Game Service

Following five months of beta testing over 2 million game-loving users, RealNetworks Inc. Wednesday made the gold release of its Web game service, RealArcade.

RealNetworks said the new and improved RealArcade features a more refined user interface, better performance, as well as a new streaming game service. But the real perk is that RealNetworks will offer over $100 worth of free games, selected from the more than 170 games available through RealArcade. This includes such favorites as Kayak Extreme, Driver, Centipede, Super Bubble Pop, Tex Atomic Big Bot Battles, Puzzle Station, Jetboat Superchamps 2 and Art is Dead.

RealNetworks, a media content delivery purveyor, announced its foray into online gaming last May.
