Midway Proves It Has Game As Nba Ballers(R) Achieves "Greatest Hits" Status On Playstation 2


Smash-Hit NBA Lifestyle Videogame Scores Big with Fans and at Stores; Now Available for $19.99

CHICAGO – March 17, 2005 – Midway Games Inc. (NYSE: MWY), a leading interactive entertainment software publisher and developer, today announced that its highly acclaimed, NBA lifestyle basketball title, NBA Ballers, has been added to Sony Computer Entertainment America's (SCEA) "Greatest Hits" collection, just eleven months after its release. NBA Ballers, developed by Midway studios in Chicago, is now available for the suggested retail price of $19.99 at U.S. retail outlets nationwide.

To qualify as a SCEA "Greatest Hit," a PlayStation®2 game must have been on the market for a minimum of nine months and have sold-through more than 400,000 units in North America; a criteria NBA Ballers easily surpassed. NBA Ballers skyrocketed to "Greatest Hits" status by shipping over 1 million units worldwide since its April 2004 release.

"It’s a terrific honor when a Midway title becomes part of the ‘Greatest Hits’ collection because it’s an unequivocal indication that consumers have really embraced your product," said Steve Allison, chief marketing officer, Midway. "We are thrilled by the strong performance of NBA Ballers thus far and we are eager to provide fans the opportunity to take advantage of the title’s new special pricing."
