HUDSON ENTERTAINMENT TO SERVE UP DINER DASH FOR XBOX LIVE® ARCADE, PLAYSTATION®NETWORK AND WiiWARE™

Players to Take Bite Out of Award-Winning Diner Dash When it Debuts on Consoles This Summer.

San Mateo, Calif. – March 23, 2009 – Fans of the classic franchise Diner Dash® can rejoice as Hudson Entertainment will dish out a brand-new version of Diner Dash for Xbox LIVE® Arcade, PlayStation®Network and WiiWareTM starting this Summer. As in the classic action-strategy game, players will take control of Flo™, a waitress building a run-down diner into a success, one customer at a time. The Diner Dash series, licensed by Hudson from PlayFirst, Inc., has sold more than 2 million units worldwide and has won multiple awards, including an IGN Editors’ Choice Award, a GameSpot Editors’ Choice, and a Zeeby.

“We’re delighted to bring Flo and Diner Dash to new gen consoles for the first time,” said Sabine Duvall, Vice President of Product Development at Hudson Entertainment. “Players have fallen in love with the award-winning series because of its quirky characters and fast-paced fun.”

Diner Dash will come to life in 3D on new generation consoles when players have the option to take direct control of Flo as she runs around to seat patrons, take orders, deliver food, take payment and bus tables as efficiently as possible within the time limit allowed. Players fond of the traditional control schemes may also use a point-and-click style with hotkeys to aid Flo in her quest for customer satisfaction, which is reflected in a heart meter that empties as customers lose patience. If the meter empties completely, then the customer will leave the restaurant. Servers looking to play with co-workers can join with up to seven other players in multiplayer across four diners in Team Dash or go 1 on 1 in Head to Head mode.
