Eidos Shows Its Hand With STACKED

Eidos Interactive, part of SCi Entertainment Group Plc, one of the world's leading publishers and developers of entertainment software, is pleased to announce the new title STACKED with Daniel Negreanu, which will be released in autumn 2006 on PlayStation 2, PC and PSP.
