With over 2 million downloads for their hugely popular games iGolf and iBowl, today, SGN, the leading social gaming company, has launched iBaseball, the third game in a series of Wii-like games for the iPhone ... 3578522&mt. Like previous SGN games released for iPhone, iBaseball leverages the innovative accelerometer mobile technology platform for the iPhone to let baseball fans, sports and gaming enthusiasts practice their baseball pitches and hitting on-the-go.

iBaseball allows players to play an inning of baseball as the pitcher and a hitter. As a pitcher, players have the opportunity to pitch to three batters with a fastball or curveball. As a batter, players try for as many hits as possible in a single inning.

In a major update release, SGN is also launching Global Leader Boards for iGolf, iBowl and iBaseball enabling players from around the world to compete against each other and have their names and high-scores displayed in a global venue. SGN is the first company to have two games in the Top Ten most popular downloaded applications at the same time and iBowl is currently features in Apple's 'What's Hot' App Store. Both games reached the number one spot within a few days of their release and iBowl remained the number one download for over a week.

"We are thrilled with the success of iGolf and iBowl and anticipate a similar reception for iBaseball among gamers and enthusiasts," said Shervin Pishevar, CEO of SGN. "It is our mission to continue to deliver these kinds of games for the iPhone and cross platform. We have an exciting pipeline of games for iPhone expected for release between now and the end of 2008 as well as regular updates to improve game play for our loyal fans." In addition to the release of iBaseball for iPhone, SGN is releasing updates to iGolf and iBowl. iGolf Pro, will be released in the next few weeks and offers a new premium update for iGolf, is an 18-hole golf course available for download from the iTunes App Store for $0.99. It is expected that within a week the free iGolf version will add a nine-hole golf course to its current options. Both games will feature water hazards to further simulate real-life game play. In response to player feedback, SGN is releasing a directional update to iBowl allowing players to add spin and curve to the ball as they release. This new update will also include the ability for players to customize the look of their bowling balls.

Pishevar continues, "Our vision for social gaming is to engage people across multiple platforms and social networks. We are striving to leverage the power of social networks on mobile devices as the vehicle for communication from any location. We see a tremendous opportunity with the viral nature of the iPhone games for connecting people from around the globe. Evidence of this vision is the Global Leader Board which allows players from across the world to compete against one another, sending game play onto international playing fields."

SGN is taking its extensive experience in the development of original and engaging social game play and applying cutting-edge technology to create a compulsive game play experience. The development of iPhone games marks SGN's expansion in mobile and social gaming technology, heralding its commitment to expanding the "social graph" established on social networking sites like Facebook, MySpace, Bebo and Hi5 across multiple platforms and form factors.
