Sega unit invests in US Internet games developer

A recently formed unit of video games giant Sega Enterprises will invest an undisclosed amount in a US-based venture that develops technologies for playing interactive games over the Internet, a Sega spokeswoman has confirmed.

Details of SegaSoft's plans for Cupertino, California-based Mpath Interactive have not been disclosed, but the spokeswoman confirms that the investment is in line with SegaSoft's strategy to develop software and content for interactive use of the Internet.

Founded late last year as a joint venture between Sega and its parent, software house CSK Corp., SegaSoft in coming months may launch an Internet-based interactive game service, she says.

Mpath has developed a similar service called Mplayer, which enables users to play a range of games including flight simulators, adventure games and traditional board games over the Internet, she says.
