LOS ANGELES - May 10, 2006 - At the 12th annual Electronic Entertainment Expo (E3), to be held May 9-12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, Glu Mobile, a leading creator and global publisher of mobile entertainment, announced a partnership with Sony Computer Entertainment America to develop and publish the mobile version of ATV Offroad Fury®, the PlayStation® 2 system's blockbuster off-road racing title.

"ATV Offroad Fury is the original and definitive off-road game experience," said Robert Nashak, chief creative officer, Glu Mobile. "We're excited to deliver its unique blend of challenging terrain, high-flying stunts and adrenaline-packed quad racing action to mobile gamers everywhere."
