SwitchGames.com, The Gamers Marketplace is the Best Option for Trading Unwanted Gaming Gifts

NEW YORK, NY– DECEMBER 15, 2009– SwitchGames.com, the world's largest peer to peer video game trading community knows what it’s like to be a gamer during the holidays. In addition to the AAA titles gamers receive as gifts, Aunt Gertrude may not know the difference between Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 and Jurassic: The Hunted. Additionally, console gamers often receive the game they were hoping for, but for the wrong console. Rather than "trade-in" those titles for a fraction of the game’s real value, SwitchGames.com gives gamers the ability to swap new and used games, consoles and accessories directly with other gamers.

"The holidays always bring lots of new titles for gamers," said Jason Crawford, SwitchGames.com founder. "Unfortunately, we don’t always get the games that we want for the consoles that we own. On SwitchGames.com, gamers will avoid getting ripped off with trade-in values this holiday season. Instead of trading in your copy of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2 for $24, and then buy a copy of Left 4 Dead 2 for $60, you can make that trade directly to another SwitchGames.com member for free.”

SwitchGames.com allows gamers to cut out the middleman and save a lot of money by trading directly with other gamers in the SwitchGames.com community making SwitchGames the perfect choice for gamers looking to expand their holiday gaming experience for free. With SwitchGames.com, gamers can play the games they received and then trade them with other gamers for the games that they didn’t receive. Or they can simply trade brand new, unopened games that they’re not interested in playing for the games that they really and truly want.

Free to use, SwitchGames.com currently has more than 90,000 games available for trade. With numbers like that, gamers are all but guaranteed to find the games that they want on SwitchGames.com.
