Choosing a cloud hosting partner with confidence

Amiga's Microsoft relationship has borne near-instant fruit; the first Amiga Anywhere Entertainment Pack for CE, CE.NET, PocketPC and PocketPC 2002 is due to ship from Monday, April 15th.

The pack comes with the Amiga Anywhere Content Engine, which allows Amiga Anywhere applications to run on Windows devices, plus four games, Planet Zed and Convex from ZeoNeo and Gobbler and Solitaire from Pulsar. Average size for Amiga Anywhere applications, according to Amiga Inc president and CEO Bill McEwen, is 300k.

You can read the full release and see screenshots of the games here. It's not clear from this how they'll be made available or what the price will be, but we'd hazard a guess that this will be revealed in the Amiga Anywhere shop on Monday. Currently, the rate per game seems to be $7-$20, and there's an Amiga DE player for Windows for $19.95. ®
