Philippine tech company Xurpas has taken a significant stake in mobile and web tournament games platform MatchMe. Xurpas bought 31.52 percent of Singapore-based MatchMe for US$1.4 million, it said in a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange. MatchMe runs a real-time, multiplayer platform for games. It’s also open to third-party game content integration. This means casual gamers can play in real-time versus other people regardless of data connection speed. It also allows customers to duel with friends or take part in competitive tournaments locally or on a national, regional, or even global level.
