Cranberry Publishing launches world's first pre-order comparison website

LONDON, UK 7TH JANUARY 2013: Cranberry Publishing has today announced the launch of a revolutionary new pre-order comparison website, PreOrder-IQ.com. The new service offers comparisons upcoming games various different SKUs on multiple platforms and compares prices of pre-orders along with editorial on the digital and physical incentives for the pre-order. It is the world's first all-in-one comparison site for gamers ensuring that they can get exactly what they want for the price they want when it comes to guaranteeing day one access to future releases.

The site is intuitively designed and easy-to-use with gamers able to compare prices, incentives and different editions at a multitude of different retailers including GAME, Play, Amazon, Shopto.net, Origin, Steam and others at a moment's glance.

"Pre-order bonuses like multiplayer skins, map packs and single-player missions have become commonplace in the games industry and as a result it's becoming increasingly difficult to sort the really good bonuses from those that are barely worth registering the code for,” said Andy Griffiths of PreOrder-IQ.com.

“Cranberry Publishing's new venture tackles that problem head-on by listing every edition of every big release so you'll know exactly what you're getting in that Collector's Edition, Limited Edition or regular offering, as well as what retailers offer the best bonuses at a price that suits your budget.”

PreOrder-IQ.com has up-to-date pricing for retailers, and allows users to filter  platforms they want to game on, as well as sign up for a price alert email if they want to wait and see if a price on a pre-order drops below a threshold of their choice.

"Getting the best pre-order for a gamer might not always be about price, but about a balance between the quality of the pre-order bonus and the cost. PreOrder-IQ.com is unique as for the first time it lets gamers see all the information from all the major retailers on all the editions in one place.

"With software sales under pressure, we believe that PreOrder-IQ.com is part of the solution for the industry, removing confusion and making it easy for gamers to find the deal that excites them, rather than expecting them to do their own research and compile their own findings from a dozen websites," explained Dave Taylor, Publishing Director for the new venture.

The main PreOrder-IQ website is one part of a new, wider pre-order service, with a new, free magazine launching later this month to tie up the venture with GamerZines.com and further innovations to be announced later in 2013.
