Videogame and movie trading portal Goozex announced that it has partnered with Bitmob to give fans an outlet for trading their old games and entertainment. Screams could be heard at multiple publishing headquarters in California.. The deal will see Bitmob’s content on the Goozex portal and the company’s trading technology injected into the Bitmob community.
The Goozex trading service, for those not familiar with it, is a proprietary peer-to-peer technology that connects members in the U.S. to trade their video games and movies using virtual currency. Goozex users trade their items and use the virtual currency earned to get many more items for only $1 each. Membership to Goozex is free.
Dan "Shoe" Hsu, co-founder of Bitmob.com, commented on the partnership in a press release today: "We’re very excited to be partnering up with Goozex. They’re pros at what they do, and with our strong community at Bitmob, we knew it’d be a great fit. Our users already discuss and analyze games with each other; trading is just the next logical step. Plus…Goozex has a pretty kick-ass (and weird!) name that we are strangely drawn to."
