Play EA Mobile’s SCRABBLE Anytime, Anywhere with New Seamless Integration Between Facebook Connect, iPhone and iPod touch
LOS ANGELES, Calif., – March 24, 2009– EA Mobile™, a division of Electronic Arts Inc. (NASDAQ:ERTS), today announced that SCRABBLE on Apple’s App Store now supports Facebook® Connect. The new edition of SCRABBLE connects the Facebook SCRABBLE application to a SCRABBLE game on iPhone™ and iPod® touch – or vice versa – allowing fans in the U.S. and Canada to have access to their favorite Hasbro-branded crossword puzzle game any time, any place.
“We’re excited to be one of the first companies to bring this popular game to two of the most prolific platforms in recent years, the iPhone and Facebook,” said Travis Boatman, Vice President of Worldwide Studios, EA Mobile. “With this new innovation, we’re giving players the opportunity to engage in SCRABBLE games from an iPhone, iPod touch or Facebook seamlessly, whether at home, during work or on the road.”
This connected version of SCRABBLE provides an intuitive interface that allows head-to-head challenges with family, friends or anyone accessing the game on Facebook, an iPhone or iPod touch. Start on Facebook and switch to iPhone or iPod touch to keep playing on the go. Connect with a Facebook friend from an iPhone or iPod touch or join a public game on Facebook. With easy tracking of scores and statistics, players always know where they rank against competitors. While playing SCRABBLE, gamers can enjoy built-in chat so they can converse with opponents and friends throughout the game. Players can also get help from in-game dictionaries.
“The ‘pick up and go’ integration between Facebook, iPhone and iPod touch allows SCRABBLE fans to truly stay connected to the game they love to play,” said Mark Blecher, General Manager of Digital Gaming and Media at Hasbro. “It is a great example of how technology is opening new and exciting channels of gameplay for one of the most popular board games in North America.”
SCRABBLE is available on Apple’s App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore, and on Facebook for users in the U.S. and Canada, or by simply visiting www.eamobile.com.
