Digital River Enhances Digital Delivery Capabilities for Online Gaming Market


Digital River, Inc. (NASDAQ: DRIV), a global leader in e-commerce outsourcing, today announced that it is offering enhanced digital delivery capabilities for the gaming community. Through a partnership with Yummy Interactive Inc., a leading provider of technology solutions for the online gaming market, Digital River now offers casual and core gamers playSooner™ streaming delivery technology to enhance and expedite the download process. This new, innovative capability is designed to meet the unique needs of the dynamic and growing online gaming space.

“The challenge with digitally delivering games is that the file sizes are so large that completing a download can take many hours, which removes the immediate gratification that downloads are intended to offer,” said Dave Rech, Digital River’s vice president of account development. “By adding this new capability, we can further cater to increasingly tech-savvy consumers by digitally delivering in even more efficient and user-friendly ways while continuing to build out our end-to-end gaming solution.”

Based on the e-commerce partnership with Yummy Interactive, Digital River now is offering a playSooner capability, a new type of streaming technology. PlaySooner immediately digitally delivers a small portion of a game while the remainder of the game downloads in the background. This allows users to begin playing their new games without having to wait, sometimes for hours, for the entire download to become functional.

“We’re thrilled to have an opportunity to extend our digital streaming technology to merchants and retailers through our partnership with Digital River,” said Nick Mellios, CEO of Yummy Interactive. “By combining our services, we will offer merchants and retailers a very strong, competitive online game delivery solution that can be branded and customized for their online business strategy.”
