Gaming Marketplace Launches UK’s First Free ‘Match’ Service for Game Swaps
A gaming price comparison site and marketplace has today launched the UK’s first free ‘match’ service for those wishing to swap games online.
The ‘Match Me’ function, launched today by www.Playr2.com, is a free of charge service that automatically matches games owned by members of the Playr2.com marketplace with users who have the game in question in their ‘wish list’. The function therefore ‘matches’ members with potential game swap opportunities, and is completely free of charge.
Members of the Playr2.com marketplace are able to search for, or scan-in, video games they currently own or want to add to their collection using the Playr2.com site or accompanying Smartphone app; whereby the games will automatically be added to their ‘Owned’ or ‘Wanted’ games lists.
With the new function on-site, users can then hit the ‘Match Me’ button whereby Playr2.com will search members' lists for suitable swaps to make with other users. As Playr2.com is constantly updating both trade-in and second hand prices for games, the site will help users to request ‘fair’ swaps, based on similar market prices.
Once a swap is agreed upon with users on-site, they can trade games completely free of charge via the Playr2.com site. Swaps will be shown in the marketplace section of the site, and both members will also automatically be entered into Playr2.com’s monthly and annual prize draws for simply completing a free swap.
The ‘Match Me’ function aims to make updating video game collections as cheap and easy as possible; and is the only site in the UK currently offering the service completely free of charge.
Simon Kilby, Founder of www.Playr2.com, commented on the launch of ‘Match Me’:
“We launched Playr2.com with the aim of making gaming as cheap as possible for people, by letting them know where they can get the cheapest deals on new, used, trade-in and even swapped games online. With ‘Match Me’, we aim to go one step further in keeping your video game collection up-to-date as easily as possible by ‘matching’
“Most video game fans will have games sitting on their shelf that they’ve either completed or haven’t played for years, and these can easily be traded to update collections with games that are actually wanted. Chances are someone will be after the game that you can’t stand the sight of anymore, and with ‘Match Me’, we aim to make finding these people as simple as possible!”
