LOS ANGELES and SINGAPORE â€“ August 30, 2012Â â€“ PointMMO, a new digital distribution platform focused on MMO games, was announced today. The platform provides publishers with the ability to self-publish and distribute their titles to a growing audience of dedicated MMO players. Unlike other platforms, PointMMO is completely focused on MMO games and the challenges MMO players have in finding new games, and getting into those games quickly.
â€œWhile there are other digital distribution platforms already operating, not one of them has a focus on MMO players,â€ said Kay Gruenwoldt, CEO of PointMMO. â€œOur system is designed to be the fastest and easiest way for MMO players to find, try, and play MMO games.â€
The PointMMO team has been quietly building the platform and adding features to its roadmap to address the needs and wants of the MMO community. With beta coming in the next few weeks, the veil will be lifted soon and players will be able to start downloading and playing MMO games faster than ever.
â€œWith our leading progressive download and streaming technologies, we get players into games without them even having to install the client, and in a fraction of the time a full download takes,â€ said Jens Bohnwagner, CTO of PointMMO. â€œFor Free-to-Play publishers, the player benefits are clear and the innovative business model accommodates their needs much better than other digital distribution platforms.â€
