The new pre-order program kicks off with the upcoming titles Batman: Arkham Asylum, Majesty 2, Football Manager 2010 and several other highly-anticipated upcoming titles.
The new pre-order program rewards GamersGate users with features that include:
- With each pre-order, users will earn bonus Blue Coins that can be used to purchase other titles.
- A price-drop guarantee that guarantees that if the pre-ordered game drops in price within 30 days from release for more than 5 days, the customer will get the difference back in Blue Coins.
- The pre-ordered game will be loaded to the user’s account six hours before release to avoid heavy traffic (with individual publisher approval).
Besides pre-order bonuses, Blue Coins, a virtual currency within GamersGate, can be earned through various kinds of user activity on the site including writing reviews, ranking games, and participating in the Game Tutor program. Blue Coins can also be purchased directly with cash.
“We want to provide customers with all the games they want anytime and anywhere, not just games that have been previously released,” said Theodore Bergquist, CEO of GamersGate. ”Over the past year, we’ve seen a dramatic increase in pre-orders on the site and as we are continually looking for new avenues to reward our loyal customers, a new and improved pre-order program that offers substantial benefits fits the bill perfectly.”
The new pre-order benefits are effective immediately on select titles.
