Videogameprices.co.uk Brings UK Gamers More Bang For Their Buck
Released on: April 01, 2011, 12:17 pm
Videogameprices.co.uk brings UK consumers a new price comparison site exclusively focused on finding avid gamers the best deals on software titles for PCs and the most popular dedicated gaming consoles.
Videogameprices.co.uk is a new online resource for PC and
console gamers dedicated to helping them track down the best current
prices on popular titles. Taking its cue from the huge success of UK
price comparison sites such as gocompare.com and comparethemarket.com
in the realms of finance and insurance products, Videogameprices.co.uk
has set out to provide UK gamers with a streamlined service tailored
specifically to their interests, aggregating the latest comparative
prices from the most competitive, reputable games retailers.
The company's founder, David Newstead, setup Videogameprices.co.uk following his
own frustration with shopping for games on the Internet. "As a keen gamer myself
with two young sons who also share my passion for this pastime, building and
maintaining a library of the latest and greatest games can be an expensive
business,” he says. “Hunting down the best bargains was a pretty time-consuming
business too, so I was hoping to find a price comparison site that would save me
both time and money!" Failing to find a site that could deliver his expectations as
slickly as he hoped, he set about creating his own.
"Too often I found potential sites were not specialized enough, or offered limited
opportunities for speedy price comparison across a wide choice of retailers. In my
experience, gamers are a pretty well informed bunch of consumers who know what games
they want, so price is the prime consideration when it comes to where they place
their order online. Video Game Prices keeps things as simple as possible to help them rapidly search and access
pricing information from a broad range of retailers with quick links to go straight
to any that can deliver what they’re after."
David Newstead also hopes that gamers will chose Videogameprices.co.uk as their
first port of call for price comparison because of its Price Tracker service. This
free service allows registered members to specify list of games they are considering
purchasing together with a target price they would like to buy at. At any point that
one of the many retailers it tracks hits or beats that threshold, the user will be
alerted by email so they can grab the game they want at a price they like.
In the short time that Videogameprices.co.uk has been online it has already
attracted thousands of gamers to its service, so its recipe for success seems to be
finding approval with its target audience and bodes well for its future... and all
this without a talking meerkat or portly opera singer in sight!
Videogameprices.co.uk http://www.videogameprices.co.uk is an Internet pricing
resource put together by a small team of avid gamers, giving it an intimate
understanding of the products and services sought out by like-minded consumers on
