    To global Number 2 from humble beginnings...
    Launched in May 2010 to lead gamers through the transition from traditional retail sales into a new era of downloadable PC gaming, Green Man Gaming has driven a real explosion in usage. Green Man Gaming has quickly risen to second position in the global PC game download market in three short years.

    The complete gaming service…
    In July 2012, GMG acquired Playfire, a huge, vibrant, and global social network of core gamers. This service allows gamers to automatically track their in-game achievements, trophies and gameplay, as well as follow other gamers’ achievements and conversations about the games they love. With over 950m game data points registered by the large global network of gamers and 1.5 billion achievements and trophies won, Playfire has become a vital part of Green Man Gaming’s focus on a complete service for the core gamers. Combining gameplay behavioural data with a powerful commerce engine sets Green Man Gaming apart from others in this space and gives Publishing partners a better way to reach gamers who will actually play their games. Green Man Gaming makes downloading, playing and tracking games fast and easy and the immediacy of the data gathered allows Green Man Gaming to promote offers in a more efficient and targeted way.

    A Rewarding experience…
    Green Man Gaming believes in rewarding gamers for helping to grow its service. Customers are rewarded in many ways, with Green Man Gaming Credit given for writing a game review, referring friends (both parties get Green Man Gaming Credit to spend on games), purchasing specific games, and trading-in digital and physical games. Customers signed up to Green Man Gaming’s newsletter also benefit by getting the latest, updated deal information, competition news and exclusive rewards and vouchers.

    Making games work harder…
    In mid-2012, Green Man Gaming extended the UK consumer offer further, launching online retail sales of PC-DVD, Xbox 360 and PS3 games, as well as consoles and peripherals, offering even more ways a gamer can choose to play. Then in 2013, Green Man Gaming launched a unique trade-in service for PS3 and Xbox 360 games in the UK, offering the opportunity for players to use the trade-in value of their games instantly to buy anything on the Green Man Gaming store. Gamers are able to use their credit for the games they are trading in straight away before sending the game back, setting Green Man Gaming apart from other services in the market and helping players to get more from the games they have finished. It also allows Green Man Gaming to offer great pre-owned console games and even better prices to help customers play more.
