Players’ True Culinary Skills with Get Cookin’

New Motion-Sensitive Technology from Sony
Ericsson Brings New Challenges to Mobile Gamers

Today at the JavaOne 2008 Conference, Glu Mobile
Inc. announced its upcoming original title, Get Cookin’, will utilize
motion-sensitive technology available on new Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications
AB (“Sony Ericsson”) handsets. The use of this technology challenges players to
use a combination of physical gestures as well as button presses to create
sophisticated cuisines, bringing an entirely new ingredient to mobile games.

Get Cookin’ is a new title from Glu launching in
July 2008 across all major carriers worldwide. Get Cookin’ challenges players to
create delicious cuisine by perfecting a wide variety of cooking methods,
ingredients, seasonings and recipes. Gamers with the Sony Ericsson W910i,
debuted earlier this year at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, will
utilize motion-specific techniques to complete enticing meals in order to rise
to the top of their profession.

“Sony Ericsson’s motion sensor technology allows
us to incorporate more authentic, true to life challenges in Get Cookin’ and
introduce an entirely new dimension to mobile games,” said Jill Braff, senior
vice president of global publishing, Glu. “The use of this technology gives
developers a way to deepen the gameplay and gives players a truly fun game that
incorporates all new ways to play.”

The built-in accelerometer in the Sony Ericsson
W910i is used to control game functions such as flipping a steak on the grill by
utilizing its sensitivity to allow for a more intense and physical gaming
experience. Get Cookin’ will utilize the JSR 256 API motion sensor found inside
the W910i and several other new Sony Ericsson devices.
