212Db's initial content and game platform offering, Play Gig-it is changing the way music lovers interact with Facebook, giving members a new way to purchase and download music while providing a new revenue stream for affiliated artists. Players create a fully customizable 3D concert with music either uploaded from a personal playlist or downloaded directly from the Play Gig-It cloud, which they then post, share, and invite friends and fans to become spectators of. The customization includes choosing the concert venue, music, sponsors, opening acts, wardrobes, stage lighting and backup dancers. More than 70 artists have partnered with Play Gig-It - making it the largest artist supported music game in history - including Lil Wayne, Kendrick Lamar, Tyga, Rick Ross, Ne-Yo, Nas, 2 Chainz, Jeremih, Brandy, Flo Rida, Miguel, Soulja Boy, T-Pain, Sean Kingston, French Montana, Melanie Fiona, Vado, The Dream, Nengo Flow, J Alverez and many more.
212Db intends on launching at the end of January a new platform that the current game as well as other games will reside on. The new platform will allow for 212Db to expand its existing music and artist based platform worldwide, capture a new audience of users as well as allow developers access to its API.
John Acunto Founder and CEO of 212Db states: "We are pleased to announce our partnership with Artivision. The alliance of our forward-thinking technologies will assist both companies in expanding their product offerings and reaching new users.

John Acunto continues, "The new platform launching in a few weeks is really going to be a game changer in terms of music distribution, gaming and social networks.
