South San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) September 17, 2007
Future US, Inc., the leading publisher of cutting-edge special interest magazines and websites, has launched FileRadar.net, an elegant web 2.0 solution in a crowded market of Web 1.0 products. FileRadar.net is created for gamers and powered by the community.
FileRadar.net takes the power of a site like Digg and applies it to the one of the most essential parts of games: the download. FileRadar.net umbrellas all download sites empowering the community to tell each other which are the best files and what are the fastest and easiest places to get them.
Users' link contributions, ranking and commentary make FileRadar.net the best place to get game files fast and free. If a user thinks a game file is essential, they "Blip". The more Blips a file gets, the higher it will rank. Links with more "Blips" appear higher on FileRadar.net and inform gamers of the collective wisdom around a specific game demo. FileRadar.net puts gamers directly in charge of what content exists in the platform the relative value of that content and the range of places from which to download the content.
For example, when Microsoft puts out a "Halo 3" PC demo, every one of their download servers will either be full or seriously lagging trying to get it to millions. On FileRadar.net, users can find or post alternative sources for that desired file. Providing users community powered game file directory is makes their game experience more positive and directly helps publishers market their games.
"Sure, the game files market is crowded and fragmented, however the existing solutions are anchored in Web 1.0 thinking. FileRadar is meta layer on the game file universe," comments Future US president Jonathan Simpson Bint.
