SUNNYVALE, Calif. -- August 19, 2013

CiiNOW, Inc.,^a leader in Cloud Gaming technology and branded gaming
platforms, today announced an agreement with Metaboli to design and launch a
commercially viable Cloud Gaming service on Metaboli.de in Germany. The
streamed video games offering will be available to customers via a
Metaboli-branded HDMI stick connected to users’ smart TVs. The service will
launch with a selection of new and popular titles including, LEGO® Batman™:
The Videogame from Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, MotoGP™13 from
Milestone, Tropico 4 from Kalyspo Media, and ArcaniA: Fall of Setarrif from
Nordic Games, and will be available to the German public later this year.
Consumers can preview the service elements and interface in the CiiNOW demo
area within the Advanced Micro Devices (AMD) exhibit booth #B080 at gamescom,
August 21-25 in Cologne, Germany.

Similar to the partnership announced in January between CiiNOW and Metaboli’s
GameTap Club in France, the proposed German service will leverage CiiNOW’s
streaming technology and will be offered as a member subscription service
featuring a variety of content and specialty services. Key to the selection of
CiiNOW as Metaboli’s Cloud Gaming technology partner was the company’s proven
conquest over latency during gameplay. With CiiNOW’s proprietary technology,
Cumulus, the latency experienced playing games is significantly less than that
of consoles and other Cloud Gaming services.

“Nearly one out of every three people in Germany play video games, and those
folks have a lot to be excited about today,” said Ron Haberman, CiiNOW, Inc.
CEO and Co-Founder. “The combination of CiiNOW’s proven streaming technology,
coupled with select quality games from Metaboli’s robust games catalogue,
means German customers will soon be playing the best titles on their favorite
screened device. We encourage anyone attending gamescom this week to visit the
AMD booth and see a glimpse of what we will be offering Metaboli customers in
Germany soon.”

“With our vast selection of great games, and CiiNOW’s best-in-class
technology, gamers in Germany will soon experience instant console-class
gaming directly to their TV,” said Pierre Forest, CEO of Metaboli. “We are
eager to work with CiiNOW on customizing the most compelling offering for
customers in this market.”
