SWITCHGAMES.COM LAUNCHES PEER-TO-PEER VIDEOGAME BUYING AND SELLING

Free Shipping, Free Package Tracking, and Guaranteed Delivery on Every Purchase

NEW YORK, NY– March 24, 2010– SwitchGames.com, The Gamers Marketplace, today announced the launch of new peer-to-peer buying and selling, enhancing the most comprehensive marketplace created for gamers. Eliminating costly middlemen, gamers' now have a dedicated marketplace that makes trading, buying, and selling between members fast, safe, and easy.

"We've made it incredibly easy and safe for members to sell their used games directly to other members" says SwitchGames.com Founder Jason Crawford. "Listing games for free, sellers get far higher values than they would from trade-ins, while buyers pay far less than they would at retail." Innovative pricing tools help sellers determine competitive prices, and payment is guaranteed on every sale. Shipping is easy thanks to First Class US Postal Service mailing labels automatically generated for sellers. Buyers receive free shipping, package tracking, and guaranteed delivery on all purchases. If a seller never sends the game, the buyer is refunded with no questions asked. Mr. Crawford goes on to say "We've created the easiest and most effective way for gamers to buy and sell used games with each other online.”

For the first time in the used games business, gamers now have the option to donate a percentage of their sales proceeds directly to game publishers. Donating to publishers is optional when selling games on SwitchGames.com and members are never required to participate in the program. "SwitchGames.com is a platform where gamers are empowered and given control of the used game business" says SwitchGames co-Founder Kai Bond. "If a gamer feels it's appropriate to donate money from a used game sale to a publisher, then so be it. If a gamer doesn't feel a donation is in order, then they are under no obligation to do so."
