"I am a self confessed cricket lover! I think cricket games (video games) are as exciting as a live match," said Bollywood actress Prachi Desai at the preview of International Cricket 2010, the latest game from Codemasters' kitty.
"I am a huge fan of Ashes 2009 and have already booked a copy of International Cricket 2010. I tried playing this game and it was an awesome experience. For once I felt that I am actually playing a live game on a cricket pitch," she added.
The showcase was organized by gaming major Zapak at Phoenix Mills in Mumbai. The game was unveiled by Prachi along with the India's fast bowler Ishant Sharma. International Cricket 2010 is produced by Codemasters and developed by Trickstar Games.
Added Ishant, "Cricket has taken a giant leap ahead and has entered our homes through consoles and computer screens. Today youngsters enjoy virtual cricket games as much as they enjoy live matches. I enjoy cricket in all forms too. With special features like Action Cam and Power Stick, International Cricket 2010 gives a real on-ground experience which will surely excite the gamers."
Arun Mehra, COO, Zapak Digital Entertainment Ltd. said, "Cricket is a passion in India and International Cricket 2010 will take this passion onto a whole new level. International Cricket 2010 promises the most immersive and engaging gameplay with action like never before to all cricket enthusiasts."
