Toshiba Taps Into WildTangent

Irvine-based Toshiba America Information Systems has tapped Redmond, Washington-based WildTangent, a publisher of online games, to launch a new, virtual console game portal for Toshiba's line of Satellite notebook computers. The two companies said yesterday that Toshiba will pre-install the WildTangent's software and five top selling games on selected models of its computers, and will link those to an online web site maintained by WildTangent. The move links in Toshiba into the growing, downloadable game market.
