TV3 and Nextnation join forces for Mobile@3



Kuala Lumpur, 17 May 2006 - Sistem Televisyen Malaysia Bhd or TV3 and Nextnation Communication Bhd have joined forces in the mobile entertainment platform to bring forth Mobile@3 Gamezone.

The collaboration between the two was set forth with the inception of TV3's Explorace reality show into its mobile form - Xploracer. The mobile rendition of the show sets competitors in a game of puzzle series with time being a major determining factor of score, true to the nature of its television counterpart.

Other games that were added to the compendium of tournament games on the website were 'Balik Kampung II' and 'Pendekar II'.

"We are pleased to be working with TV3 and hope this step is a good sign towards acceptance of the inevitability that the mobile gaming market is in Malaysia and here to stay," stated Rafli Ridwan, Nextnation's Vice President of Business Development.

Mobile@3 adopts a point based redemptive system based on ranks and points accumulated every month. These points can in turn be redeemed in exchange for attractive prizes offered in the Gift Shop. While only three tournament games are currently offered on the site as of now, more interactive and tournament games are expected to be added over the next few months.
