SCi ENTERTAINMENT EXCEEDS PROJECTION

[ January 23rd 2006 ]

The Board of SCi Entertainment Group, the UK's leading computer games publisher, is pleased to announce that the level of sales activity in the first six months of the financial year, to 31 December 2005, has exceeded 40 million.

This is approximately 15 million better than the Group's internal budget. As the major portion of the Group's revenues arise in the second half of the financial year to 30 June 2006, the Group has not revised its internal budget for the financial year as a whole.

Additional sales arose primarily from the continued distribution of Lego Star Wars, on Sony Playstation 2, Microsoft Xbox, PC and Nintendo Gameboy Advance. This product was also successfully launched on the Nintendo Gamecube in October 2005. Lego Star Wars has performed particularly well in the United States, demonstrating the strength of the Group's US publishing operation.

The major portion of the Group's revenues will arise in the second half of the financial year to 30 June 2006 as a result of the strong line up of new products due for release, including the eagerly awaited next installment of the Tomb Raider franchise, Lara Croft Tomb Raider Legend.

We are also pleased to announce further versions of Lara Croft - Tomb Raider. Lara Croft Tomb Raider Legend will be launched on the Sony PSP in Summer 2006. In addition we are developing a special edition of Tomb Raider to celebrate the Tenth Anniversary of Lara Croft, clearly established as one of the icons of video games.

The six months to 31 December 2005 was the first full six month period following SCi's acquisition of Eidos in May 2005. The integration of SCi and Eidos is now complete and the Group remains confident of delivering its plans for the full financial year.

In October 2005, the Board of SCi announced that it had received approaches that may or may not lead to an offer for the Group. The Board remains in discussions and will update shareholders as to any developments when appropriate.
