We set out to make the best offers we possibly could, but the catch is that you have to be there when the clock starts ticking. This is not a bargain-bin offer, we are featuring the very best casual games from the top developers.
Zürich, Switzerland (PRWEB) September 4, 2009
XIHA Hour is an all new concept designed to offer the very best casual games at the lowest prices possible to gamers around the world.
During the hour, one hit game is available for a special bargain. The game is always a high quality title picked from the best sellers list, but the name of the game is not announced beforehand.
Once the hour is over, the same game will never be offered in XIHA Hour again, so these are once-on-a-lifetime opportunities for each of the featured games. XIHA Hour is a global event, which happens everywhere at the same time, but the time keeps changing from day to day. To make it easy to figure out when the next XIHA Hour happens, there is a timer at XIHA Life counting down time towards the next event.
"You snooze, you lose" says Jani Penttinen, one of XIHA Life founders. "We set out to make the best offers we possibly could, but the catch is that you have to be there when the clock starts ticking. This is not a bargain-bin offer, we are featuring the very best casual games from the top developers."
The test runs with XIHA Life members have proven the concept works well. The status updates and chat messages are echoing eager users waiting for the next XIHA Hour to start and trying to guess which game is going to be on the offer.
The games featured in XIHA Hour so far include such mega-hits as Build-a-lot 4, which is currently at the top of the sales charts in many gaming sites. The discount rate is not set in stone but XIHA aims to keep driving the already low prices lower as the volumes grow higher.
