Branson promises download revolution for PC games

Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson has unveiled a download platform for PC games which he claims could 'replicate the functionality of iTunes' and drive massive growth for the sector.

The subsidiary Virgin Games and Game Domain International (GDI) this morning announced a new 3D 'virtual world' platform called A World of My Own (AWOMO).

Koch Media is the first traditional PC games publisher to sign up for the technology.

The platform claims to offer key advantages over existing technologies - including rapid download speeds enabling play within minutes instead of hours, far greater security, and improved ease of use for the customer.

The story is too old to be commented.
