I will never forget the time when I went to buy fifa 10 at Game and I paid £42 pound for it brand new!!! Then I found out that Tesco was selling the game for £30!!!.... I was a bit pissed off!! lol

And that got me thinking, what if there was a way to find out where the best prices for games? Now there are a lot of comparison site online! but is there a really good one for gamers?

Is there a Place that makes shopping for games easy but at the same time give all the info you need for games in one place, news, reviews etc?

I am a gamer and what I wanted to do is create a website that a one stop portal for the best prices, latest news, and the most helpful review. I think I have created it

the website is called compare the game (

I hope people will check it out, and let me know your thoughts?? I want to build the best site for people that like games... if it does well I would hope I could give back, to the gaming community and more.. fund more ideas and help save people money at the sametime.
let me know what you think, and any feedback (good or bad) is appreciated, I want to make this the best site possable!

    I agree with the others. You have an awesome site that will give value to a lot of customers. If I were you, I'd add a shop where users could buy/sell used games once you get substantial traffic. I assume the 'buy now' buttons go to affiliate links.

    I think you hit on a solid idea for a niche site. The gaming industry is a big niche though with lots of searches, so the key will be getting traffic to your site. Do you plan to monetize it and if so, how?

    Thanks everyone,

    I wanted to create a great site. .... the site is built around Affiliate like using the buy button

    Like Jeff said traffic is the key, then I can look to monetize it, from affiliate sales & advertising...

    If I am being honest, money doesn't mean than much to me,.... don't get me wrong I want the site to do well and make money so the site headtohead said "add a shop where users could buy/sell used games" (which is a great idea) etc.... looking to add hints and tips soon.

    my mate help create the website, works for a company called Melon Design & Marketing. great honest bunch of people if you want a website built.
