UK games site Videogamer.com has launched a 720p video player, claiming it’s the first in the country to do so.
“I’m really exited at the launch of our HD offerings as we approach our busiest Christmas ever”, said site boss Adam McCann.
“This is also a prime example of how VideoGamer.com is continually diversifying, providing new and unique opportunities to media buyers to market their products online.”
The service has been launched in conjunction with Ubisoft and its Far Cry 2 campaign.

UK site Videogamer.com’s launched an online games show, the first episode of which can be found here.
As you’ll see, the movie “features video game reviews and previews uniquely blended in with predominantly British comedy sketches and irreverent humour. The first episode features a review of Grand Theft Auto, Iron Man, Mario Kart and Euro 2008, alongside previews of Haze and Metal Gear Online.”
There’s no solid schedule in place for it at the moment, but we’re told these should be appearing every three to four weeks. Take a look.

UK site Videogamer.com’s being taken over by Haze, the site’s confirmed, for this entire week. Further activity for the game will carry on for another couple of week after that as well, we’re reliably informed. Take a look at the Haze “Launch Zone” here.
“We’re committed to offering game publishers new and unique opportunities to market their products online in ways that really capture the audience, in addition to our foundation offerings,” said Pro-G Media’s Adam McCann. “Media first campaigns such as this Launch Zone are prime examples of how this can be done.”
Matthew Waghorn, senior planner at Maxus, said, “Audience engagement is a fundamental of any plan, and to do so with gamers on their own turf is notoriously difficult. We found working with VideoGamer.com not only allowed us access to a great gamer community, but enabled us to implement in a unique and genuinely engaging way.”
We asked for VideoGamer.com’s traffic, and were told to expect and ABCe audit from the site later this year.

Double uh oh. Videogamer.com reckons the recent Sith Gamer interview with Robbie Bach, which detailed some of what Microsoft is expected to show at GDC next month, is “entirely fictional”.
The interview, which claimed Alan Wake and Halo Wars would be shown at the California developer conference, was picked up all over the web, with a showing of Alan Wake now a truth in the mind of the internet. We’re not just talking about small sites here, either.
“It now turns out that all this teased info has come from the mind of the blogger, Microsoft informing VideoGamer.com that this interview is entirely fictional,” said Videogamer.com’s report.
Well, if this story’s correct there are going to be alot of red faces in the morning. Thanks to Videogamer.com for what has to be the funniest story of the week so far.
