In addition to continuing its efforts in mobile gaming, the division will also focus on online gaming, on new platforms (such as PDAs and interactive TV), and on new channels, including broadband games on demand services and electronic software distribution. Simon Protheroe will be heading the new division as director of new media and online technologies, while at the same time stepping down from the Eidos plc. board. European Managing Director, Jonathan Kemp will replace his executive post.
