INDIANAPOLIS, May 10, 2006—BradyGames, the go-to source of video game strategy, hints and secret codes for the top video games in the industry, is unveiling new strategy videos and its 2006 strategy guide line-up at the 2006 Electronic Entertainment Expo (May 10–12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center) in the BradyGames booth located in West Hall, #2608.

BradyGames' booth will be equipped with four media stations for hands-on strategy video experiences for Konami's Metal Gear Solid 3: Subsistence, Capcom's Resident Evil® 4, Sony's Shadow of the Colossus, and Activision's Call of Duty® 2. To offer an immersive gaming experience, each of the videos featured at the kiosks will be displayed on LCD flat panel monitors, an iPod, and a PlayStation Portable (PSP), accompanied by headphones for sound. The strategy videos will enhance and complement BradyGames' print and electronic guides and will convey strategy in a new and more powerful presentation. The portability and accessibility of the strategy video content will allow it to be viewed on multiple platforms, including gaming handhelds, video iPods, and in-home game systems.
