Ian Baverstock, Business Development Director of Kuju Entertainment commented, "Glass Ghost will concentrate on creating vibrant and exciting games. They will be amongst the highest quality budget priced new releases in the market. Naturally we wanted to work with the best possible publisher for these titles and are delighted to have signed this deal with Midas Interactive who have shown themselves to be both innovative and extremely successful."

Stephen Morgan, Development and Product Acquisitions Manager at Midas Interactive, added, "I could not think of a better partner to do business with. Kuju Entertainment have a unique blend of development skills and creativity and these titles will truly stand out from the crowded PlayStation 2 budget market."

"GTR-400" is a performance car heaven packed full of both production and GT models from leading manufacturers Mosler and Ascari including the MT900 and KZ1.

"Bikes 'n' Sides" brings together a unique mix of Superbikes and Super Sidecars. The quality of the game has already allowed Midas Interactive to secure endorsements from many of the leading Superbike and Super Sidecar teams to add extra realism to the gaming experience.
