Hereford, England, March 30th, 2012 – Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, announced today that Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is coming soon to the European PlayStation® Network with PlayStation®Move capability. Currently available on PSN North America, this definitive paintball game, developed by Super X Studios LLC, adds to Majesco’s growing slate of digital games for PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system for 2012. GHP2 is THE perfect family friendly shooter, providing a PEGI 12 rated alternative to this genre.
As the next iteration in the highly successful paintball franchise, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 features PlayStation®Move technology, thrusting players into the middle of the action like no other paintball game has. This game features more than 10 single and multiplayer game modes, each staged in all-new paintball fields based on authentic locations from around the world, including the amazing Euro Big Game in Mahlwinkel, Germany and the grand National Paintball Fields UK in Bassetts Pole, England. Featuring three new event branches—Tournament Speedball, Recball, and Tournament Woodsball— Greg Hastings Paintball 2 arms players with loads of classic and cutting edge gear and guns, including paint grenades and rocket launchers, from the best paintball companies, such as Tippmann, Stiffi, Crossfire, R7, CCM, Empire, Valken, RAP4, and MORE.
Serious “ballers” can even become general manager of their own 10-player team composed of REAL professional and amateur paintball players. Gamers can trade players, issue quick commands to teammates and use their earnings from the field to build each player’s individual stats so the overall team is that much more competitive. The better the team assembled, the more tournaments a player stands to win, providing him or her with added cash to buy new gear, players and skill upgrades. Prove yourself the ultimate paintball wizard by taking your team online to compete with up to 14 players via PlayStation®Network. Break out of the same old shooter game mechanics, and take full advantage of the new Peripheral Vision feature. Talk about realism; adjust your fire to compensate for random wind and weather.
Greg Hastings Paintball 2 is launching April 27th to PlayStation®Network Europe for €12.99/£9.99. For more information please visit the official site: www.gregredhastings.com

About Greg Hastings
During Greg Hastings’ 25 year paintball career, he has competed all over the world and notched many wins with championship teams such as Ground Zero, Bob Long's Ironmen, XSV and Smoke. He is a true master of speedball, woodsball, and every format in between. Greg's passion for video games started in the late 1970's while mastering coin operated shooting games such as Asteroids, Defender and Centipede. This passion came to a pinnacle while being stationed on the nuclear powered fast attack submarine USS Gato, where he mastered “real” video games as a medal-winning SONAR Supervisor during his six year tour in the US Navy. Greg earned two Southwest Asia Campaign Medals for his time spent in the combat zone during the first Gulf War, and also received a medal for being “The best SONAR operator ever inspected.” Since then, Greg has dedicated himself to creating the most fun, best-selling paintball video game franchise that bears his name. He can be found this season on his Tour of Duty 2012, where Greg has at least 5 European appearances. www.GregRedHastings.com/TOUR
