Midway has partnered with Shockwave.com to create a system for the syndication of Midway's classic games titles. Using a virtual device called a 'Shock Machine", players will be able to download, save, and play golden oldies like Joust, Defender, Spy Hunter, Marble Madness, and Moon Patrol. The games will be available exclusively at Shockwave.com for a period of three months after which the games will move to Midway's own site and could be syndicated to other sites as well. "We will offer a syndication model that will enable our classic games to live on much in the same way that classic television programs do today," says Mike Ribero, executive vice president of Midway Games.
