Accolade Ships Pitball for the Sony PlayStation Game Console

San Jose, CA, November 11, 1996 -- Accolade is leaping into the 23rd century with today's release of Pitball for the Sony PlayStation game console, a new multiplayer cyber-sport competition set in the future.

Twelve alien races from 12 planets square off in this new contact sport where players shoot powerful Orbs to score goals. Players can earn points through competition, sponsorship or bribes, allowing them to buy new equipment and power-ups. Players compete in unique arenas throughout the universe, each with varied gravity, weather conditions and power-ups.

In keeping with Accolade's multiplayer strategy, Pitball is playable with up to four players using Sony's Multi Tap. Four players can play at a time, taking on opponents with special moves, fighting attacks and death moves. Pitball also offers full season league play for single game play. The legendary Michael Buffer, known for calling out "GET READY TO RUMBLE" at professional bowing tournaments, provides the voice-over to each match.

"Pitball stands alone as one of the most unique games available on the market, offering the best multiplayer 3D action on the PlayStation," said Jim Barnett, CEO of Accolade.
Pitball will be available at an estimated street price of $49.95.
