With this agreement, Jamdat has signed deals with the top three game publishers. Earlier this year, Jamdat signed deals with top-ranked Electronic Arts Inc. and with THQ Inc., the third-largest game publisher in the industry.

Activision O2 titles covered under the exclusive deal include Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, Matt Hoffman's Pro BMX 2, Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer, Shaun Palmer's Pro Snowboarder 2, Travis Pastrana's Pro Moto-X and Shawn Murray's Pro Wakeboarding.
