SUNNYVALE, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 16, 2005 -- Agetec, Inc., a leading publisher of entertainment software, today announced its plans to introduce five new titles at the Electronics Entertainment Expo (E3) in booth W2660 at the Los Angeles Convention Center next week.

At the same time, Agetec introduced its tongue-in-cheek Anti-Booth Babe Movement campaign.

"E3 used to be all about the new titles for the year, but now it seems like a competition between which company employs the hottest booth babes," said Mark Johnson, vice president of Agetec, Inc. "Sure, we all love beautiful models, but we thought it was time to remember that E3 is about the games, and applaud real people, real games and serious fun!"

The exciting title line-up to be featured at E3 includes:
