Synovial Brings Sega Game Gear Emulation To PDAs

Sega of America has partnered with wireless multimedia platform provider Synovial to bring Sega games to various mobile phones and handheld devices, using Synovial's SDK, called SYN.
The first product resulting from the partnership is Virtual Game Gear, software that recreates the experience of the Sega Game Gear on PocketPCs. This alliance marks the first time Sega content will appear on a PDA in the U.S., and other mobile platforms are slated for support soon. Synovial's Virtual Game Gear allows Pocket PCs to simulate the same gaming experience that consumers enjoyed on Game Gear. To play, gamers simply turn on their device, start the Virtual Game Gear software and choose from one of three Sega games that come embedded in the software. Titles include the original Sonic The Hedgehog and the puzzle game Baku Baku Animal. Users can download additional game packages from the Internet for a low fee.
