Paris, November 3, 2010

Record Third Quarter Sales of EUR34.7 million, up 15%

Gameloft achieved consolidated sales of EUR34.7 million during the third quarter
of 2010, up by 15% from the previous year. Europe represented 32.6% of the
company's sales during the quarter, North America 31.9% and the rest of the
world 35.5%.

During the first nine months of 2010, Gameloft consolidated sales reached
EUR101.3 million, up by 12% year on year. On a constant exchange rate basis,
nine month growth was 10%.

In EUR millions              2010   2009    Variation
1st quarter                  33.0   30.8        +7%
2nd quarter                  33.6   29.3       +15%
3rd quarter                  34.7   30.1       +15%
9-month total               101.3   90.2       +12%

The company's performance during the third quarter was very strong and confirms
the steady growth experienced during the previous quarter. This was driven by
sales in emerging countries and by the massive success of Smartphone devices
around the world. In particular, Gameloft has seen its sales on iPhone and iPad
grow by 80% during the first nine months of 2010. The company has positioned
itself as a leading game publisher on Apple's AppStore since launch.

Recent and future releases of high-performance Smartphones from such companies
as Apple, Samsung, Nokia and Google should continue sustaining Gameloft's growth
in the upcoming quarters. Additionally, the release of new devices suited for
video games, such as Apple's iPad or Samsung's Galaxy Tab, should allow Gameloft
to continue its diversification on other platforms and provides the company with
interesting relays for growth.

Therefore, Gameloft is expecting continued revenue and profitability growth in
2010. In the long term, the company appears in an ideal position to benefit from
the rapid emergence of the digital distribution of video games on mobile phones,
tablets, TVs, consoles and from the major technological innovations brought to
the market.
