Used in more than 300 PC and Playstation2 titles to date, GameSpy technology facilitates sophisticated online gaming features and allow players from across the globe to compete via a Wi-Fi connection.

"New online elements in console and PC games like Battlefield 2 are increasing hours of game play and attracting more players," said Mark Stieglitz, Vice President and General Manager of IGN Entertainment's Publisher Services. "Now we are able to help add functions such as persistence and team play to the online game titles for "PSP".
