UK gamers have been such good boys and girls this year that Santa and GAME have decided to make all their dreams come true this Christmas with the launch of the GAME Pad: the ultimate gaming getaway and must-have pressie for gamers.

Based at Staybridge Suites London Stratford City and decked out with all the gaming essentials, the GAME Pad is a unique hotel suite that has been created especially for gamers who crave uninterrupted gaming time. The GAME Pad includes three bespoke gaming zones for Xbox, PS3 and Wii U, each featuring a 40 inch TV and all the latest games such as Call of Duty: Black Ops II, Halo 4 and Assassin’s Creed amongst others. Want to watch the footy at the same time? No problem, the GAME Pad also includes an additional, non-gaming TV as well so gamers can kick back, relax and live it up in their gaming sanctuary.

To keep energy levels high, the GAME Pad also comes with a fully stocked fridge, including a range of pizza, snacks, bottled beer, wine and soft drinks. For those that can't last the night, there's a king size bed to crash on and a slap-up breakfast in the morning too, sending you home recharged and refuelled.

Anna-Marie Mason, Marketing Director for Game Retail Ltd says: “We know that this time of year, gamers yearn to escape from all things Chrismassy to indulge in their passion. With loads of amazing  launches in the last few months, games are top Christmas presents this year but so many gamers won’t have enough time to enjoy and play them in peace, be this due to demanding jobs, children to look after or housemates who won’t let them hog the TV! We want to make it easy for gamers this Christmas by offering them a brilliant gaming getaway which allows them the luxury of uninterrupted gaming!”

So if you’re a gamer desperately seeking some peace and quiet to play your new game or if you’re completely stuck on what to buy the gamer in your life for Christmas, look no further! The GAME Pad is available to book now for stays during January 2013. Costing £199, the package includes an overnight stay, games, consoles, fully stocked fridge and breakfast the next day.
