Up to pounds 3 million is earmarked for the UK and activity will kick

A forthcoming pounds 500,000 campaign will focus on games magazines. The

agency has also booked TV spots and the interiors and exteriors of

number nine buses in London, plus the inside of telephone boxes along

the route.



Interplay will also sponsor music festivals broadcast on the youth TV

channel, Rapture, this year.



Interplay, which recently floated on the US stock exchange, generates

its creative work in-house.
