College Park, MD– June 4, 2007– Goozex, Inc. announced today the introduction of video game community forums. Goozex members are now able to interact with each other across North America, add unique content, and participate in a rapidly growing video game trading community. The forums are also designed to be a communications application for the company to provide customer service and collect suggestions for improvement on a larger and more organic user driven level.
To participate, members must have an existing Goozex membership account, which is free for anyone. Exclusive member content includes, among other things, game reviews, comments on video game industry news and events, organized off-line events, and Goozex sponsored promotions. Additional community features will be added as the forum community continues to grow.
“This is an exciting new way for our members to interact and participate within the Goozex universe,” said Mark Nebesky, CMO at Goozex. Mark continued,“We wanted to make sure we built the best video game trading system for our members and have ready a thrilled community to populate our message boards. Our game trading model with point values and the $1 transaction has been validated by our members who keep coming back to trade more and more games. The forums are the next step for Goozex to interact on a more personal level with our members and who can now start to take control of the content and drive the website.”
The Goozex community forums are expected to grow rapidly with an existing and extremely active game trading user base. Over 11,000 trades have occurred on Goozex since January 2007. In addition, over 5,500 unique video game titles are currently available for trading across 13 different video game platforms including Xbox 360, PlayStation 2, Nintendo Wii, PC and Mac consoles.
In addition to posting on the forums, members can also expand upon their personal profiles with unique avatars, signatures and biographies. Users that post can also be rated by their peers so that the creators of quality content can be recognized and given instant feedback.
