Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. to Address Hobby Store Owners on Plans for Organized Play, New Rankings System & Demonstrate Innovative New Barcode Scanner For Tourney Stores at 2009 GAMA Trade Show

El Segundo, CA – (April 14, 2009) –Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. (KDE) will unveil much anticipated Organized Play plans, their new rankings system - Konami Card Game Official Tournament Support System (COSSY) – and an innovative Barcode Scanner for use by Official Tournament Stores to enter players into events and to record their rankings.

The Barcode Scanners have been in use in Japan and will be utilized for the first time in North America this year. Registering players for your events will now be a snap – Konami’s player ID cards feature a barcode system which allows you to input your players’ data directly into the COSSY system with a single swipe through the USB-enabled barcode scanner. COSSY will also track each player’s record during the event. Once the tournament is over and final results have been submitted and confirmed, the COSSY system will update your players’ rankings online - automatically. There are an estimated 300 lucky Store owners that are Official Konami Tournament Stores who will be the first to utilize the Barcode Scanner absolutely free.

“The Games Manufacturers Association Trade Show offers the perfect environment to meet with our hobby store partners and to educate them on what our plans are for the coming year and beyond,” noted Yumi Hoashi, Vice President of Card Business, Konami Digital Entertainment, Inc. “GAMA is also the place for us to receive first-hand accounts of how things really are in the hobby. This is why we chose this event to detail our organized play efforts and the new rankings system - Konami Card Game Official Tournament Support System.”

KDE will have a slew of new products for the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG and the Blue Dragon Role Playing Card Game (RPCG) to unveil to the GAMA Trade Show audience. Upcoming releases for the the Yu-Gi-Oh! TCG will be highlighted included Raging Battle, 2009 Yu-Gi-Oh! Starter Deck, Raging Battle Special Edition, Gold Series 2009. Additionally, KDE staff will be presenting the Blue Dragon RPCG demo kits, the Light and Dark Shadows Starter Deck and Destinies Unite booster set.

The information after Gold Series is about Blue Dragon so pay no attention to that.
