Game trading site launches European offshoot.
Rome, Italy. – Goozex, Inc., the leading online video game trading community in North America, announced today the company’s launch of its service for 28 European nations. Goozex is an online market place that matches members to trade games for Goozex Points, a virtual currency, which they can use to get other games for only €1. Video game players across Europe can now enjoy the benefits of saving money, accessing a large library of game titles, and joining for free a vibrant online community of gamers. Goozex.eu service will begin immediately on February 2, 2009.
Goozex EU will launch the game trading service in 28 European countries: all EU-27 countries and Switzerland. Please refer to www.goozex.eu for a complete list of countries.
The online service was started in 2006 in the United States with a mission to let gamers get the best trade values for their used video games and save money to get other games they want to play. Goozex has revolutionized the way games are exchanged online with an automatic trading system. Members list the games they have available to send and those they wish to receive, and Goozex finds the best match for their offers and requests. Each game is pre-assigned a value in Goozex Points, to make trading games easy and effortless on Goozex.
Games are assigned a point value based on several factors including supply and demand, and users earn points when trading their games with other users. Points can then be redeemed for other video games. The system offers its users a fair market value for their games and guarantees all trades. In the US, Goozex calculates that on average, members can save $16.50 (€12.52) per game trade as compared to traditional used game retail stores. Joining Goozex is free and each transaction is only €1. Games for thirteen major platforms are available for trading including the Microsoft Xbox 360, Sony PlayStation 3, Sony PlayStation Portable, Nintendo Wii, Nintendo DS, and Windows PC.
All services found on Goozex.com (North America) will be available for Goozex EU including the following:
• Video game trading
• 100% guarantee on all trades
• Forum community
• Connect to Play feature for all games
• Gamer Profile Flash Application (use on MySpace, Facebook, iGoogle and other social media networks)
