||Costa Mesa, Ca., (September 30, 2003) New online video game rental
company, Gamerang, officially announced today its entrance into the interactive
entertainment market. Led by software and games industry veterans, Gamerang is
looking to provide consumers with a superior solution for their video game
rental needs. Located at www.gamerang.com,
the company offers thousands of video games for rental, from the top new
releases found on all the next generation game console platforms, to vintage
"As a parent of four girls and a gamer myself, I was constantly frustrated with
our video game rental options," said Greg Gentling, co-founder of Gamerang.
"Our family could never find the games we wanted to rent at retail outlets,
online rental options were nearly non-existent, and buying all the games my
family desired just wasn't cost effective. Because we understood this need and
because we love games, we started Gamerang."
Gamerang offers tremendous value to consumers by providing the games they want
delivered quickly, with multi-tiered pricing that is ideal for individuals and
families alike. A single monthly membership is $14.95 and lets members rent as
many games as they want each month, provided members check out the games one at
a time. A double monthly membership is $19.95 and lets members check out two
games at once. For gamers or families of gamers who want to enjoy more than two
games at once, each additional membership is $7.95 per month. There are no
other online video game rental services that allow members to rent more than
two video games at a time. There are no late fees and Gamerang also offers a
free 10-day trial of the service.
"In order for Gamerang to be successful in this competitive marketplace, we have
to provide superior customer service," adds Gentling. "We have built a system
that saves time and maximizes convenience so kids, teens, and adults don't have
to spend time searching all over for the games they want to play when they
could be playing them. Our quick delivery of games separates us from the rest
of the market. We also know that in order to grow, we need to continue
developing a base of highly satisfied customers who encourage their friends to
become Gamerang members." To that end, Gamerang offers a $5 bounty for each new
Gamerang member that an existing member signs up (provided the new member
remains a member for a minimum of three months time).
Rental requests are processed within 24 hours and consumers can expect to
receive their games within one to three days, in a prepaid mailer. Gamerang
also offers free shipping and free return postage on rented games via an
enclosed, postage pre-paid envelope.
Members are encouraged to create a video game rental "Choice List" found in
their online Gamerang account. As soon as they return a game, the next game on
their Choice List is sent out. Members can even pre-order a yet-to-be-released
game and expect to receive it one to three days from the published street date.
Gamerang also offers parents a special parental control feature, which allows
parents to view and modify their children's Choice Lists to restrict them from
renting teen or mature-rated titles.
