4 May 2011: Are you a Street Fighter superstar? A Halo hero? A Farmville fanatic? Do you need to scream and shout about your gaming prowess but worried that no one– or worse still, the wrong someone– is listening? Then it’s time to sign up to a brand new social network called Pixwoo, which has been designed specifically for gamers to share their passion for everything gaming.

Pixwoo is live now at www.pixwoo.com and welcomes all types of gamers– from professionals to casual– to sign up and start talking games. Gamers can identify like-minded gamers through their unique gamer DNA, which makes it clear to other Pixwoo members what game genres they favour and what type of gamer they are. They can also keep up to date with the latest games gossip and log on to the hottest news from developers, publishers and hardware manufacturers.

The site is the brainchild of Pixwoo CEO Pascal Vielhescaze:“Generic social networking platforms are fantastic for keeping in touch with friends and family, but it’s not ideal for sharing the minutiae of hobbies and passions. Gamers deserve to feel comfortable boasting they have reached level 85 in Guild Wars, for example. And that’s why big isn’t necessarily better when it comes to social networking. Knowing you share a common interest with everyone else on there is much more important, as is the ability to speak passionately without prejudice.”

Becoming a member of Pixwoo is free. Simply register at www.pixwoo.com.
