AU Game Association Absorbs New Zealand Equivalent

July 1, 2010 -

The Interactive Software Association of New Zealand (ISANZ) has merged with Australia’s Interactive Games & Entertainment Association (iGEA).

ISANZ will adopt iGEA’s name, resulting in a single trade organization that now totals 22 companies, including the seven new additions from New Zealand. Citing research from GfK Retail and Technology, iGEA claimed that the 2009 videogame market cracked $2 billion in Australia and reached a record $170 million—an increase of 12 percent—in New Zealand.

iGEA Chairman Edward Fong stated, “There is great opportunity to collaborate and share our knowledge, insights and resources with our New Zealand team and we are very excited to have them on board.”

Former ISANZ president Mark Goodacre, now a Director for iGEA, added, “This strategic partnership will help ensure we remain relevant to our members on a local and international level.”

InfophileRetailer exclusives are the worst preorders, especially when there's more than one. It's just trying to take advantage of the hardcore fans who want all the bonuses.08/31/2015 - 5:00pm

Andrew EisenMore pre-order crap but pretty neat alt-costumes for Street Fighter 5. Love it when they take the time to model new outfits and hairstyles as opposed to going the easy route with a palette swap. Pick your favorite because each is retailer exclusive...08/31/2015 - 3:52pm

Brad GlasgowIt's the same argument as all her videos. She argues that the tropes reinforce bad behavior. She has no evidence to support that.08/31/2015 - 2:27pm
InfophilePredictions: 1) People will be mad and criticize her without even watching the video. 2) People will be upset that she criticizes things they like without thinking about whether the criticism has merit08/31/2015 - 1:29pm
