Hudson To Bring PlayFirst Casual Titles To 'Virtual Consoles'

Hudson To Bring PlayFirst Casual Titles To 'Virtual Consoles'

July 25, 2007 | By Brandon Boyer

Casual game publisher PlayFirst has announced a new partnership with developer Hudson to bring a number of PlayFirst, including Gamelab's hit web, mobile, and handheld title Diner Dash to console digital download services throughout 2008.

After the initial release of Diner Dash, the companies expect to also bring Mystery of Shark Island, Sandscript, Zenerchi, Oasis and one of PlayFirsts newest titles, Chocolatier to consoles.

No specific console services were mentioned, with the wording broad enough that the deal will presumably cover Xbox Live Arcade, the PlayStation Network and the recently announced WiiWare channel of Nintendo's console.

Said Hudson Entertainment president and CEO John Greiner, PlayFirst is a leader in the casual games space and shares Hudsons goal of delivering top quality entertainment to a broad audience of players. Top casual games such as Diner Dash that have a wide appeal are driving a new era in console gaming. PlayFirsts portfolio combines the best in casual games with lovable characters, immersive storylines and incredibly fun gameplay making them well suited for the fast-growing and increasingly mass market audience of digital download service users.
