With today's games becoming more complex and time consuming, GameTime Entertainment, Inc. today announced a ground-breaking solution by introducing a lineup of DVD-based strategy guides for best-selling video game properties. Known as digital video guide or dvG, the full-motion video and voice-over provides players with expert solutions on how to best navigate a game. Read more for details ...

"GameTime's dvGs(tm) offer a convenient and easy-to-use format that can benefit every level of gamer - from the busy professional who is short on time, right up to the hardcore gamer," says Robert Yan, CEO of GameTime Entertainment, Inc. "People tend to retain more of what they see than what they read and as such, our guides are an ideal way to maximize their level of enjoyment by reducing the time and frustration often experienced in completing a game."

Through an agreement with Prima Games, a division of Random House and the world's leading publisher of strategy guides for computer and console games, GameTime's premiere dvG(tm) is based on UbiSoft's highly anticipated Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six® 3 for the Xbox® video game system from Microsoft.

The fledgling company's new guide has already been embraced by leading retailers nationwide, including Best Buy, BLOCKBUSTER®, GameStop and Hollywood Video.

GameTime's new Tom Clancy Rainbow Six 3 dvG(tm) features the strategies and expertise of a pro gamer. Future dvGs(tm) will include multiplayer strategies, game demos, multilingual settings, close captioning, new product trailers, developer interviews, hints and tips for other games, and detailed special moves with keypad instructions.

GameTime's Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six 3 dvG(tm) is shipping this month and carries a suggested retail price of $14.99. More information about GameTime Entertainment and its entire lineup can be found at
