Kelowna, BC (PRWEB) February 16, 2015
The WTFast GPN is designed for the Massively Multi-Player Online (MMO) & Multiplayer Online Battlefield Arena (MOBA) gaming market. Globally, the video game market is estimated to be a $100+ billion dollar market with over one billion gamers*.
When a gamer plays an MMO game, the game data travels back and forth from the user’s PC to the game server. The speed and stability of this data transmission becomes critical for effective game play. The WTFast GPN gives MMO/MOBA gamers a private, dedicated network designed specifically to optimize this data transmission, helping to reduce potential lag issues and ensure the best game connection, speed and stability.
“We’re proud to count GameStop as a new distribution partner. As the top global game retailer, they will empower more gamers with the game connection enhancement provided by the GPN” said Rob Bartlett, WTFast CEO. “Because of their leadership in the gaming ecosystem and their distribution capabilities, their support of the GPN also marks another step in the growth of our company.”
GameStop currently has over 4,200 stores in North America and 28 million loyal PowerUp Rewards® customers worldwide. “Because connection issues are so critical to the gaming experience, we are excited to feature the WTFast GPN as an additional offering to our customers who play MMO/MOBA games.” said Gino Carlomagno, Digital Merchant for GameStop. “In MMO gaming, the speed and stability of your connection are critical to your performance in the game; the GPN is valuable service for most gamers who play those latency-sensitive games.”
The agreement will allow WTFast to expand its marketing and distribution reach globally while allowing GameStop to offer a new subscription product with broad MMO/MOBA gaming market potential.
