As would-be business moguls, gamers will experience the highs and lows of creating an empire as they design products, build offices, hire and fire staff, and even go public. "Big Biz Tycoon" is currently available nationwide for a suggested retail price of $19.99 and carries an "E" rating by the ESRB.

"We've brought the fast-paced excitement of big business straight to gamers' keyboards -- where you're only as good as your last business plan!" said Danny Hammett, President of Activision Value Publishing.

In "Big Biz Tycoon" players start from the ground up, overseeing product R&D, distribution and advertising, while maintaining a happy yet productive workplace, by hiring and firing staff, decorating the office and planning company outings.
