Koch pots deal for snooker licence

Koch Media has snapped up the worldwide distribution rights to the next World Snooker Championship games.

In a deal with developer Blade Interactive, Koch will handle the release of the title, which has been rebranded WSC Real – Season 2008 on Xbox 360, PS3, PS2, PSP, Wii DS and PC. The title will be released to coincide with the World Snooker Championships in April next year.

We’re very proud to have been chosen by Blade to handle this esteemed licence,” said Koch MD Craig McNicol. We are also particularly pleased that Blade have recognised our position on the world market, which fits perfectly with developers who wish to take the monolithic step to being publishers of their own IP.”

Blade’s joint MD Peter Jones added: I am delighted to confirm that Koch Media will be the exclusive distributor of the WSC: Real. Koch are in a league of their own – the success of the Wii hardware launch is testimony to their marketing and administrative prowess.”
