Atari announced the launch of the Company's first online software service that delivers its back-catalog titles over the Internet to Atari fans worldwide. The service will distribute the software to personal computers in pure digital form, bypassing the need to install from a disk.
Unlimited access to Atari's growing e-catalog of games, productivity software, and kids' software is available at the site that has been set-up for the service, which will cost USD 14.95 per month.
The Atari On Demand service uses the EXEtender Turnkey technology solution from Exent Technologies Inc., which powers leading online game services in North America, Europe and Asia.
The Atari On Demand subscription service, powered and operated by Exent, opens up Internet access to a large and growing selection of Atari's back catalog, offering value packages for the Atari gaming enthusiast and casual user alike. With a broadband connection, Microsoft Windows operating system, and an international credit card (Visa, Mastercard, American Express and Discover), customers can join the service from any place on the globe. The Atari software is delivered using Exent's innovative streaming technology, which ensures that bandwidth utilization is kept to a minimum and that the customer's computer can handle application-specific requirements prior to delivering the software.
