Patrick Garratt launches videogaming247.com

UK, February 1 2008

Patrick Garratt today announces the launch of videogaming247.com, a brand new gaming news website.

Bridging the gap between information-hungry consumers, early adopters and trade users, videogaming247.com focuses solely on global gaming news. The site provides a clutter-free environment for getting the right information to the people that need it, day in, day out.

“Launching this site is incredibly exciting for me,” said Patrick Garratt.“I believe videogaming247.com will plug an obvious gap in the UK games editorial market, skirting a depressing trend in me-tooist website releases from Britain’s content publishers in recent years. If you’re a dedicated consumer or member of the games trade and you’re sick of candy-sweet editorial, late news and naïve industry views, videogaming247.com will quickly become a staple of your bookmark list.

“This website is about nothing other than gaming news for people that either need or want it.”

FEATURES

Extensive news updates– All major daily stories mixed with exclusive news will make for an indispensible mix for those hungry for gaming information: videogaming247.com will become required reading for anyone, UK-based or otherwise, interested in gaming news and gossip.

Three newsletters a day– Registered users will be able to sign up for newsletters released at 8am GMT, 1pm GMT (8am EST) and 4pm GMT (8am PST), meaning whenever your day’s starting you’ll always have all the news that matters waiting in your inbox.

Unique message board– The videogaming247.com message board has been designed to promote inclusive chat among those looking for a fast-paced chat experience with like-minded users.
