Rallisport to be shown at CES

Digital Illusions/Microsoft Games Studios racing game to be shown at CES

Swedish game developer Digital Illusions CE AB´s (DICE) soon to be released Rally game, "RalliSport Challenge", will be demonstrated during Bill Gates’ keynote speech on January 7th at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The game clearly demonstrates some of the great elements of the Xbox(tm) video game system from Microsoft®.

The Consumer Electronics Show which is being held in Las Vegas January 8-11, 2002 is the world’s largest consumer electronics show with more than 2000 exhibitors and 110 000 visitors from 100 countries every year. RalliSport Challenge will be shown by Seamus Blackley, Group Manager in the Xbox Marketing Division and one of the men responsible for bringing Xbox(tm) to life, as part of Microsoft founder Bill Gates’ keynote.

Said Blackley, "I have always wanted a rally game that lets me truly experience this great motorsport. Using the power of the Xbox, DICE has for the first time enabled console players to get the true thrill and adrenaline rush of rally."

"It is very positive for Digital Illusions but also for the future sales of the product, that Microsoft believes so strongly in the title. That RalliSport Challenge has been chosen to demonstrate the console’s capacity during the world’s largest consumer electronics show will guarantee strong media coverage and is a good kickoff for the launch", said Patrick Söderlund, Digital Illusions’ CEO.

"RalliSport Challenge is a true testament to the Xbox difference. The richness of its play experience sets a new standard for Rally games that can only be achieved on Xbox" said AJ Redmer, Racing Studio Head, Microsoft Games Studios.

RalliSport Challenge, which is being developed by Digital Illusions’ Stockholm studio and published by Microsoft Games Studios, will be released in conjunction with the Microsoft Xbox(tm) European launch on March 14, 2002.
