Each player views the game from their own perspective on the field and must communicate and cooperate with their teammates to succeed. Unlike most video games, UBO players are rewarded for their collective on-the-field performance.
Netamin Communication Corporation, a pioneer in Massive Multiplayer Online Sports Games (MMOSG), is headquartered in Diamond Bar, California with operations around the globe including Korea and Taiwan. The company has launched its first MMOSG title, Ultimate Baseball Online, with subsequent titles expected as demand and interest for this next-generation gaming technology grows.
