The introduction of these 15 iconic console games, which previously were available only on PlayStation, Windows and iPhone platforms, will now be offered for the first time on an IFE platform. This represents a significant step up in terms of IFE technology, and adds to more than 80 games currently available on KrisWorld, says the carrier.

The carefully chosen selection, which features high-quality graphics and effects, offers something suited to every age and denomination of passenger. Highlights include the multi-award-winning Worms series, which is available exclusively on SIA; Actua Golf 2, an advanced golf simulation game; Actua Soccer 3, a 3D-graphics football game; Fallout, an 'RPG (Role Playing Game) of the Year' award winner; Syberia, an 'Adventure Game of the Year' award winner acclaimed for its graphic design and intelligent script; as well as Warm Up!, an F1-style racing game.

The Red Eye Collection Games are currently available on selected Singapore Airlines Airbus A380-800 aircraft. It will be made available progressively on all A380s, as well as the A330-300, A340-500 and Boeing 777-300ER fleets.
