Digital Interactive Systems Corp. (DISCover), the leading innovator and provider of technology solutions for the PC gaming industry, today announced the launch of InstaPlay, a patented desktop client and service that brings the ease and accessibility of console gaming to the PC.
DISCover?s InstaPlay is the definitive means for browsing, purchasing, downloading, installing, storing, organizing and playing games and demos on the PC. Detailed game descriptions, screenshots, reviews, cheats and system requirements are offered, providing the most comprehensive game guide on the market today. Additionally, DISCover?s patented digital distribution system, which is incorporated into InstaPlay, allows gamers to purchase top PC titles in a variety of digital formats, including digital trial, rental, full purchase download and physical game discs. InstaPlay allows gamers to quickly get into the action with console-style ease by incorporating three core components:
Drop-N-Play ? Simply drop the game disc into the drive and InstaPlay automatically installs, organizes, and launches the game just like a console. Subsequently, when a disc is required for play, simply dropping the disc into the drive will automatically launch the title.
MyGames ? Simple, intuitive organization of all game titles installed on the PC. InstaPlay searches out previously installed games and organizes them for instant access.
One-Click-Play ? Whether running a trial or fully installed game, one click is all it takes to get into the action.
InstaPla will offer gamers quick and easy access to their games as well as the ability to browse, demo and purchase new top titles in any format they choose,? said David Ferrigno, CEO, DISCover. ?By eliminating the cumbersome install and launch process required for most PC games, InstaPlay will make PC gaming more accessible to a larger audience than ever before.?
InstaPlay is Vista-ready and will launch with hundreds of titles, many of which are award-winning games from top publishers. InstaPlay will ship exclusively with DISCover?s OEM partners.
