EDISON, N.J., September 28, 2010 - Majesco Entertainment Company (NASDAQ: COOL), an innovative provider of video games for the mass market, today announced the availability of Greg Hastings Paintball 2 for Wii and the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft. As an added bonus, each version of the game includes a paintball pass (valued at $300) good for free entry and rental at select paintball fields across the country.
The latest release from the most successful name in paintball videogames, Greg Hastings Paintball 2 features more than 10 single and multiplayer game modes each staged in 62 all-new paintball fields based on actual locations around the world. Featuring three new event branches-Tournament Speedball, Recball, and Tournament Woodsball-the game arms players with loads of classic and cutting edge gear and guns, including paint grenades and rocket launchers.
Serious "ballers" can even become general manager of their own 10-player team composed of professional and amateur paintball players. Gamers can trade players, issue commands 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. Players can also take their team online and compete with up to 20 players via Xbox LIVE® or up to 8 via Nintendo® Wi-Fi Connection on Wii.

During Greg Hastings' 23 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 best-selling paintball video game franchise that bears his name.
