Participants to Compete for Major League Baseball Tickets and Merchandise

Diamond Bar, California - July 28, 2006 - Netamin Communication Corp. today announced that its Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 Summer Classic will begin Aug. 7. This double-elimination tournament, which will continue through Aug. 15, will be open to 16 six-man teams. Five players from each team will take the virtual field at once, with the sixth player available for substitutions-a brand-new Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 (UBO 2006) feature. The UBO Summer Classic will actually include two separate 16-team tournaments, allowing lower-level players to compete for prizes as well. Players can sign up for the UBO Summer Classic at http://www.ultimatebaseballonline.com

UBO 2006 has drawn a great deal attention for its innovative format: MMORPG meets sports game. Ryan McCaffery of Games Radar said, "Ultimate Baseball Online's initial steps give hope that every fan's dream could become reality," and Randie Kilgore of Daily Game said UBO 2006 is "shaping up to be a baseball fan's field of dreams."

The event cost is $6.95 per player, and real-world prizes will be awarded to each player on the top three teams. Prizes will be awarded as follows:

Upper Division (Level 30 and above)
1st: $100 toward game tickets/merchandise to any MLB, Minor League, or other professional baseball game

The UBO Summer Classic comes just weeks after each player on Storm was awarded a brand-new PSP(tm) (PlayStation(R) Portable) system in the Ultimate Baseball Online 2006 PSP Invitational Tournament. Storm beat Gearheads to finish the tournament with a perfect 6-0 record.

About Ultimate Baseball Online
In UBO, baseball enthusiasts and gamers compete in 3D virtual stadiums. With stunning graphics and surround-sound audio reactions from the crowd, participants control customized characters for each position and compete together against other UBO gamers. Players use an avatar to bat, pitch, field, run, steal and perform any baseball action. Participants can practice, play pick-up games, join or found their own teams, compete against rival teams, play in specialized tournaments, and win league championships in post-season play. Gamers create their own characters and build their skill level (player stats) through successful play on the field against other real human players. Unlike current video games that aspire to simulate professional sports, UBO delivers a first person perspective to sports team interaction via real-time online experiences.
