Xbox LIVE Arcade Title Speedball II Gets Extra Content

AUSTIN, TEXAS, December 5, 2007 - Empire Interactive, a wholly owned subsidiary of Silverstar Holdings (NASDAQ: SSTR), and veteran British developer, The Bitmap Brothers, today announced that they will be releasing a range of extra content for their Xbox LIVE® Arcade for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft title “Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe.”

Since its launch in October, a steady stream of “Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe” content has been and will continue to be made available for download. “Speedball II Theme Pack”, containing four exclusive backdrops and a tiled Xbox blade, is followed up by 4 new downloadable 3D Arenas, each with 3 variants, giving players even more customizable options.

Ian Higgins, CEO of Empire Interactive said, “Offering extra content enables users to tailor the unique Speedball experience to their own individual taste and offers additional promotional opportunities to increase awareness and downloads.”

Mike Montgomery, of developers Bitmap Brothers commented, “The extra content, and in particular the arenas, players and strips, dramatically enhance game play and make a real contribution to making ‘Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe’ the definitive package.”

Since its release on 17th October, “Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe” has generated tremendous downloads on Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360. Regarded as a breakthrough title that took the sports genre to a new level, the Bitmap Brothers classic “Speedball” game was first released for the Amiga in 1990 and quickly became a huge success. However, it wasn’t until the release of its sequel, “Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe” that the title reached new gaming heights and sold over 2 million units. It is still considered by many to be one of the best games of all time. The Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360 version is a perfect conversion of “Speedball II: Brutal Deluxe”, but with the addition of an all-new High Definition version, more teams and downloadable content, whilst still retaining all the classic elements that have made it a firm favorite amongst gamers.
At a cost ranging from 100MP to 150MP, the extra content releases will please both hard-core fans and new generations of Speedball gamers.
