New York, NY - July 10, 2007 - 2K Games and 2K Sports, publishing labels of Take-Two Interactive Software, Inc. (NASDAQ: TTWO), today announced a strong line-up for the E3 Media & Business Summit 2007 in Santa Monica, California, from July 11-13, 2007.

Game demonstrations will take place at the Hotel Casa Del Mar, in the Crimson Room and Board Room, and at the Barker Hangar.

2K Games' Line-up Includes:


BioShock is the "genetically enhanced" first person shooter that lets players do things never before possible in the genre - turn everything into a weapon, biologically modify your body with plasmids, hack devices and systems, upgrade weapons and craft new ammo variants, and experiment with different battle techniques.

Gamers enter the game as a cast-away in Rapture, an underwater Utopia torn apart by civil war. Caught between powerful forces and hunted down by genetically modified "splicers" and deadly security systems, players have to come to grips with a deadly, mysterious world filled with powerful technology and fascinating characters. No encounter ever plays out the same and no two gamers will play BioShock the same way.

BioShock will also be featured at Microsoft's Xbox 360 and Games for Windows booths at the Loews Hotel.
