Award-Winning Celebrities From Both Music and Movie Industries to Receive Sifteo Cubes at MTV's Highly Anticipated Awards Ceremony

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 12, 2013) -   Sifteo Inc., the creators of Sifteo Cubes, will be an official gift bag sponsor at the 2013 MTV Movie Awards. Hosted by Rebel Wilson, the ceremony will air live from Los Angeles, California on Sunday, April 14th, 2013 at 9:00pm PT. Sifteo Cubes are a new portable game system that brings family and friends together for interactive tabletop play.

Backstage celebrity presenters and A-listers will be treated to a terrific allotment of gifts in each bag produced by Backstage Creations, including Sifteo Cubes (MSRP: $129.95). Celebrities receiving gift bags will include Will Ferrell, Emma Wilson, Brad Pitt, Peter Dinklage, Steve Carell, Melissa McCarthy, Zac Efron, Kerry Washington, Seth Rogan and Danny McBride, Amanda Seyfried, Chris Rock, Adam Sandler, Chris Pine, Zoe Saldana and Zachary Quinto. 

"We are delighted to be showcasing Sifteo Cubes at this year's MTV Movie Awards," said Jeevan Kalanithi, co-founder of Sifteo. "I'm sure someone like Will Ferrell has wondered what it would be like if the iPad had a love child with a set of LEGOs. He's about to find out."

Sifteo is defining a new way of play, blending physical hands-on objects with the best of today's interactive gaming technology. The Sifteo Cubes Game System includes 3 motion responsive touch screen game pieces (cubes) that facilitate cooperative in-person play. Neighbor Sifteo Cubes side-by-side or top-to-bottom and watch them interact. Press, flip, tilt, flick, shake, sort, trade, combine, and stack cubes to control the gameplay.

Sifteo Cubes can be purchased at Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, and Marbles the Brain Store. Sifteo Cubes are fun for ages seven and up.

"We're excited for the celebrities who receive gift bags to play Sifteo Cubes while they're on the road and during down-time with their families," said David Merrill, co-founder of Sifteo. "They live extremely busy lives. Sifteo Cubes will give them a chance to slow down and connect face-to face with their families and friends through play."
