Apples to Apples is now for Gamers!





MATTEL’S POPULAR FAMILY GAME APPLES TO APPLES™
GETS CONNECTED WITH DIGITAL, SOCIAL AND MOBILE PLAY THIS WINTER

THQ Set to Deliver Innovative New Games for PlayStation Network,
Xbox LIVE Arcade, Facebook and Mobile Devices

This December, THQ Inc. (NASDAQ: THQI) and Mattel (NASDAQ: MAT) bring families everywhere the ability to experience Apples to Apples™, the game of hilarious comparisons, on their favorite game consoles. Additional social and mobile applications are set to launch later this winter.

This holiday season, Apples to Apples™ will delight players and bring families together using PlayStation Network for PlayStation®3 and Xbox LIVE® Arcade for Xbox 360®, just before expanding onto Facebook and mobile devices. The digital versions of Apples to Apples™ will feature social gaming connectivity capabilities, allowing family and friends to share or play anytime, anywhere - in the same room or on opposite sides of the world!
Loved for its zany spontaneity and humorous results, Apples to Apples™ is the ultimate icebreaker. The family game favorite challenges players to outwit and anticipate the actions of others while taking into consideration personality, preferences and individual senses of humor. Apples to Apples™ is a word comparison game that requires strategic thinking and allows players to learn while having fun.

On Xbox LIVE Arcade for Xbox 360and PlayStation Network for PS®3 the game will feature single-player, local and online modes for up to six players. Apples to Apples™ also comes packed with all-new customizable play modes, vibrant backgrounds, and Golden Apple cards, which can be used to change the rules in fun new ways. Participants can choose between 16 animated avatars such as Pirate Apple, Cowboy Apple and Ballerina Apple. Players will also be able to post game results and boast of their clever comparisons on Facebook to earn additional rewards.

I am thrilled that this classic, childhood card game is gearing up to enter my gaming world! My kids will love playing this on Christmas morning!
