El Segundo, Calif.- Sept. 15, 2008- OGPlanet, a leader in the free-to-play MMO gaming industry, has announced that their in-game currency is now easier to purchase thanks to their new game cards, available exclusively at Blockbuster stores. The virtual currency, called Astros, can be purchased online in a variety of ways, but the new agreement with Blockbuster marks the first time OGPlanet-specific game cards will be available at a brick-and-mortar retail outlet.
"The availability of OGPlanet game cards at Blockbuster stores nationwide represents an entirely new level of accessibility for OGPlanet fans," said Don Choi, COO of OGPlanet. "We're thrilled to be working with Blockbuster in this venture. Their success as an entertainment retailer makes them an ideal location for distribution of OGPlanet game cards."
The OGPlanet game cards available at Blockbuster stores can be redeemed on OGPlanet.com for Astros. The Astros can then be used in OGPlanet's four titles - Albatross18, RumbleFighter, Cabal Online, and the upcoming title La Tale.
