For Worldwide Distribution

Further to the successful North American launch of Xploder's PS3 Cheat Save and Media Management solution, the company has announced that the PAL version of the product will be available at launch.

It's well documented that the PlayStation 3 is not only a powerful next-gen gaming console; it incorporates a myriad of multimedia functions that have been included to place the console at the heart of the user's home entertainment system.

And for those gamers who wish to exploit the capabilities of their new PS3 system, Xploder has created the ultimate media management application - as well as providing access to the latest PS3 cheat saves, the Xploder HD Movie Player and Media Manager provides users with a comprehensive range of software tools to enable the conversion, transfer and management of their entire media collections.

MOVIES: At the recent CES show in Las Vegas, delegates were astounded by the superior HD 720p and 1080p resolutions of the High Definition movies that had been converted by Xploder software for PlayStation 3 playback. Xploder automatically converts movie files to the AVC (.MP4) format for PS3 playback. It is compatible with the majority of movie file formats, including DVD (VOB)*, MKV, Xvid, DivX, MPEG 1, M1P, MPEG 2, TS, M2P, WMV, ASF, MP4 and AVI.

MUSIC: The conversion of music to MP3 and transfer via the easy-to-use 'iTunes style' desktop interface could not be any more simple! Convert your CD collection, along with MP3, AAC and WMA files, and you can even transfer music straight from your iTunes music library.

CHEATSAVES: If you want to get ahead of the game, you need access to the #1 Cheats Database - the software allows you to download exclusive PS3 cheat saves from www.xploder.net. North American users had instant access at launch to PS3 cheat saves for the latest games including Call of Duty 3, Ridge Racer and Resistance: Fall of Man, and with over 30 titles announced for European launch, Xploder.net is THE place to download PS3 and PSP cheat saves for the hottest games.

IMAGES: Manage your photo and image gallery for viewing on PS3 and PSP. Preview thumbnail images via the desktop interface and simply copy them across to your portable memory device. Compatible with JPG, BMP, GIF, PNG and TIF formats.

All this functionality will be available for just £19.99 from high street retailers or from the Xploder store.

In addition the all-new Xploder download service means that you can get your hands on this market-leading software app for only £14.99.
