Game Informer Announces the Launch of Game Informer Online.
MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 9, 2003
Game Informer, America's fastest growing consumer magazine, has launched a new, companion venture, Game Informer Online.
With over 1.2 million paid magazine subscribers, Game Informer has constructed a complimentary asset to the industry's leading publication. In addition to extending content from the magazine and posting up to the minute news, movies, screenshots, codes, demos and downloads, Game Informer Online is building a community of like-minded gamers through its online forums. The site also features an exclusive archive of game reviews from the magazine and a count down release calendar for the anxious gamer. Gamers will also have access to the Game Informer Store to buy games and exclusive Game Informer merchandise. Game Informer will keep its finger on the pulse by utilizing the new site for surveying readers and offering sweepstakes contests to all gamers.
Subscribers of Game Informer magazine will have access to Game Informer Unlimited, which is Game Informer's version of an online demo disc. Unlimited extends normal game coverage with elements that are impossible to find in a printed magazine. Unlimited features audio and text interviews, tons of movies, extra screenshots, and much more.
At the helm of Game Informer Online, Billy Berghammer serves as Managing Editor. What began as a hobby, four years ago Billy created the PlanetN2000 / Planet GameCube web site, which very quickly became the world's largest independent Nintendo fan site. Billy Berghammer said, "I have always rated Game Informer as the best magazine, so it's not surprising that we created the most dynamic site available to gamers."
Game Informer Editor-In-Chief, Andy McNamara said, "Game Informer Online adds a new dimension to the magazine. It's made for gamers, so it's not obtrusive and they can get the news and information they need, fast. Game Informer Online is a great resource for our readers and all gamers."
