MONTE CARLO, Monaco -- Gamefederation and Jump Games today announced the launch of a pay-per-play gaming offering to be rolled out across Europe. The solution, called Jump Arcade, will be powered by Gamefederation?s Mobile Services Broker technology.
Pay-per-play, a well known phenomenon in Asia, is set to break new ground in Europe. Jump Arcade offers gamers the opportunity to download games for free and only pay when they want to play, very much like the good old game arcades. ?We want to offer the users quality games and the possibility to play the games they love without having to spend a lot of their disposable income. The pay-per-play function gives the user the perfect opportunity to ensure that the game is worth the money and this will for sure lower the threshold for people wanting to try mobile content.? says Aaron Whiteman, General Manager at Jump Games EMEA.
?Jump Arcade, enabled via Gamefederation?s Mobile Services Broker technology, GEX?, will revolutionise the way end-users discover, download, and pay for mobile content. GEX not only provides direct to customer (D2C) distribution of content, its existing integration to international payment services and mobile operators, and its in-application billing component ensure that Jump can generate and process micro payment transactions on the mobile device,? says Thomas Lindgren, CEO Gamefederation.
GEX?s warehouse of existing plug-ins, and the ability to generate and deploy new plug-ins on the fly, ensures that Jump Arcade will meet the unique needs of the different jurisdictions in Europe. Designed to ensure fast, reliable and scaleable access to value adding mobile services, GEX ensures a short time to market with operator grade performance.
The portal will offer paid and free content and will initially be launched in England, Germany, Sweden, Finland, Norway, and Denmark. The first operator to launch Jump Arcade in Europe will be Tele2 in Sweden.
