Highly Promising Launch for First-of-Its-Kind Gaming Video Platform

New gaming video platform, G2PO.com, cracks half a million hits in its first two weeks.

February 29, 2012 - A very promising public launch for G2PO.com, a first-of-its-kind gaming video platform, reaching over 500,000 page views in its first two weeks after opening to the public on Monday, February 13 th, with registered users topping 17,000. G2PO.com is designed to serve video content - such as trailers and reviews, news, and strategy videos - from video game publishers and developers, leading gaming news publications, and top independent producers, and enable gamers to find and follow all the games, videos, and channels they want, with ease.

Much like publishers, developers, publications and top independents already do on broader video platforms, G2PO.com allows each to freely publish to the same video platform, but now distilled to gaming exclusively. Video content from major publishers can already be found on G2PO.com, including publishers like Activision, Square Enix, PlayStation, and Xbox, as well a growing list of video game developers, like Digital Extremes. As G2PO continues to grow, so does the opportunity to discover a game’s developer and publisher through every single related video released on G2PO, allowing game fans to more readily become developer fans, and publisher fans.

Core to G2PO is also top independent producers, having already recruited dozens of highly popular gaming video producers to also publish their video to G2PO.com. By focusing on quality video, top independent producers are able to achieve the visibility they need.

“This website is going to be giving you gamers the quality content that you want, and it’s going to be easy to find,” said Katherine Jovey, co-host of 3_KILLA_BYTES, the popular video game reviews show now also on G2PO.“It’s a unique platform that allows you to upload to this channel and YouTube at the same time. Also there’s a unique thing that allows you to time when videos come out.”

This is only the beginning for G2PO, as the platform continues to develop new features and bring on more content providers.“It’s an ambitious platform, so the fantastic reception and initial traffic is very encouraging,” said Gary Manning, Creative Director of G2PO.com.“We’ve designed G2PO to be as inclusive to both gamers and video producers as possible, and it is our sole focus to make the optimal platform for them. We’ll continue to iterate and build on our strengths, and over time prove that the connection between gamers can evolve into what G2PO stands for, Gaming 2.0.”
