OLYMPIC FEVER: AROUND THE RINGS' Ann Cantrell reports the '12 London Games represent "a series of firsts for ISM Ltd., the IOC's worldwide exclusive licensee of Olympic-themed video games." Publishers beginning next month "will release a series of Olympic-themed games for virtually every platform from Xbox 360 to mobile phones to web browsers." "Mario and Sonic at the Olympics Games" hits retail stores Nov. 18 and is "featured as part of a special edition blue Wii console bundle in European markets." For the "first time ever, there will also be a Facebook game in which people can build an Olympic Park online." ISM will "work with sponsors to give away real-life prizes for winners." ISM also will "work with Olympic sponsors and National Olympic Committees to create 'minigames' or simpler, flash-based games for free that can be played through a web browser" (AROUNDTHERINGS.com, 10/19).
