AIS won the business after a pitch against The Collective and the French agency BeBoc.

Its remit will include digital and social media activity after the recent launch of the Vita and a number of game releases. There will be a year-long campaign that will be translated into 26 languages and include a virtual character called "Victor Ludus".

AIS joins a roster that includes 180 Amsterdam, Adam & Eve, Drum, Iris Worldwide and TBWA\London.
