LAS VEGAS, Jan. 9, 2012 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- INTERNATIONAL CES -- MIPS Technologies, Inc. (Nasdaq:MIPS), a leading provider of industry-standard processor architectures and cores for digital home, networking and mobile applications, and Gameloft, a leading publisher of digital and social games, announced they are working together to optimize several of Gameloft's cutting-edge video games for new MIPS-Based™ tablets. Games include Asphalt 6: Adrenaline, Spider-Man: Total Mayhem and Let's Golf! 2.

Spider-Man: Total Mayhem will be embedded on the devices, and the other games will be available for purchase from the Gameloft Store.
"We are pleased to see some of Gameloft's most popular games running so well on these new MIPS-Based tablets. With their affordable price point, the tablets have the potential to reach a broad range of consumers who will now be able to experience our high-quality HD games. We look forward to working with MIPS licensees to bring our games to a variety of MIPS-Based platforms from tablets to DTVs and set-top boxes," said Gonzague de Vallois, Senior Vice President Publishing, Gameloft.
"The Gameloft games have stunning visuals, creating a compelling gaming experience on the new MIPS-Based tablets.
