Seoul, Oct. 8th 2012─Ubitus Inc., the worldwide technology leader in cloud gaming solutions, today announced the availability of world’s first Game Development Kit (GDK) at Korean Games Conference 2012 (KGC2012). For the first time, Ubitus GDK is enabling developers to easily convert their games to support cloud gaming services operated by service providers who leverages Ubitus GameCloud® solution.

Our subscribers can indulge themselves in high-quality, native-like gaming experiences right on their smartphones, tablets, STBs and PCs via Ubitus’ cloud technology. Ubitus GDK will play a critical role in the continued success of C-games.” said Byung-Wook Chun, SVP and Head of Service Platform BU of LG U+, “Together with Ubitus, we will work hard on providing more amazing cloud entertainment.”
