Sandpoint, ID (PRWEB) January 10, 2008
PLAYXPERT is pleased to announce the acquisition of Tometa Software, a six year old company with an extensive track record in producing quality custom software and social media applications for a number of leading consumer and technology companies. The two companies have worked together for the past year, as PLAYXPERT has leveraged the Tometa team to produce new widgets for the PLAYXPERT ecosystem. Tometa Software is now known as MetaXpert (http://www.metaxpert.com) and will continue to operate as a leader in custom software development. In addition, MetaXpert will be the services arm for PLAYXPERT for new widgets and extensions to the PLAYXPERT platform.
The acquisition gives PLAYXPERT an immediate and unrivaled capability to deliver new and innovative widgets that offer a high level of sophistication and rich entertainment experience that players around the world have come to expect from PLAYXPERT.
"The opportunities for our industry are vast and exciting. We are growing and broadening our audience, expanding our development horizons, and continuing to create a truly innovative gaming platform for players," said Charles Manning, CEO of PLAYXPERT. "MetaXpert is a great fit for us and provides the needed horsepower to address the roadmap we have identified for 2008."
With PLAYXPERT, gamers are provided 'situational awareness' so they get an upper hand. Players can send IM's to any friend across any chat network (AIM, MSN, Google, Yahoo or XFire), strategize on game situations in real time via various VOiP technologies (Vivox, TeamSpeak, Ventrillo), browse the net, monitor hardware stats (temp, process list, RAM, etc..), use third party content sites (Wikia, Wowhead, Thottbot, Allakhazam, and others), control music players (WinAmp or iTunes) all this through modular widgets accessed without leaving the game. PLAYXPERT helps reduce time spent swapping between browsers, searches, and the game client, allowing the player to enjoy the gaming experience rather than wasting time juggling disparate systems. PLAYXPERT eliminates the need for alt-tab.
PLAYXPERT, LLC is the provider of next-generation in-game community management tools which address a core need in the growing Massively Multiplayer Online Game ("MMOG") market. The Company is focused on delivering the technology gamers want to enrich their community experience and allow them to engage in their favorite activities (forum posts, chat, music control, or monitoring system diagnostics) while in-game. PLAYXPERT is a completely customizable platform giving gamers the freedom to choose just the right series of tools to enhance their gaming experience. PLAYXPERT has published their widget application programming interface (API) so that community-built widgets can be delivered for the PLAYXPERT ecosystem.
