TouchTunes PlayPorTT will provide leading game content including classic games, popular licensed games, and exclusive new games and comes ready to connect to any Gen 3 TouchTunes Jukebox.

Were great admirers of TouchTunes and feel that the combination of our game expertise and TouchTunes on-location digital entertainment industry leadership gives us the best team in the business, said Kenneth Fedesna, former president of White Rabbit Game Studio, LLC and new vice president and co-general manager, along with Ed Pellegrini, also from White Rabbit, of TouchTunes Games Studio.
