Majesco is also showcasing several games based on high profile entertainment properties including Aeon Flux, Taxi Driver and Jaws Unleashed, developed by award-winning Appaloosa Interactive.

Other booth highlights include: appearances by best selling author Clive Barker and Aeon Flux creator Peter Chung, an Infected deathmatch tournament on the PSP handheld system, multiple JAWS Unleashed "feeding times," Infected zombie "makeovers," and much more.
