Gizmondo to showcase six new proprietary games, one featuring incredible new Augmented Reality and Gyroscopic Camera gaming technology, one featuring GPRS, and the first ever GPS-enabled game.

LONDON, 4th May 2005 - Gizmondo Europe Ltd, subsidiary of Jacksonville, Florida-based Tiger Telematics Inc. (other OTC, TGTL), today confirmed the line-up of amazing game titles to be unveiled and demonstrated on the Gizmondo multi-entertainment device at this year's mammoth E3 gaming expo in Los Angeles, which runs from 18-20th May.

The entertainment industry focal event that draws tens of thousands of industry professionals and analysts will be the stage from which Gizmondo will give the first ever demos of six new original titles exclusive to Gizmondo, namely; Supernaturals, Johnny Whatever, Chicane, Hit and Myth, Sticky Balls, and Agaju: The Sacred Path - which is scheduled to have a soon-to-be-announced legendary rock star provide a title soundtrack.

The multi-million dollar booth (#1078, South Hall), next to software giant and supplier of the Gizmondo's Windows® CE operating system, Microsoft, will also feature expert demos of the first ever, internally developed GPS enabled gang warfare game, Colors. In addition, Gizmondo will be showing the award-winning driving game, Richard Burns Rally, and launch titles; TrailBlazer, Fathammer Classics, and Gizmondo Motocross 2005, all delivery in stunning detail by the 128-bit NVIDIA® GoForceTM 3D 4500 graphic accelerator.

Eric Peterson, President of Gizmondo Studios, offered: "These breathtaking original titles we are showing resonate the entertainment ethos that is unique to Gizmondo. The new technologies in particular will demonstrate that the Gizmondo, although recognised as the most feature-rich handheld available, becomes greater than the sum of its parts when we introduce and combine different areas of functionality."

He added, "As well as celebrating our 19th May 05 pan-European rollout, we'll be announcing the US street date at the show, marking the start of our launch ramp up for North America."
