Zergwatch Social News & Bookmarking Gives Gamers Voice Page One Visibility

Newly launched web site provides an Open Community format for gaming oriented Social News and Bookmarking.

Jackson, NJ, March 05, 2008 --(PR.com)-- Zergwatch is an Open Community Social News & Bookmarking website designed specifically for video game players, video game fansite webmasters, video game bloggers and the video game industry to aggressively promote and syndicate gaming related media to an industry focused and targeted platform.

The Zergwatch Open Community engine provides anyone with a gaming blog, website, product or vocal opinion with the tools necessary to distribute their content to the masses without restriction. Once content or social links are submitted to Zergwatch, the community then decides where the content goes by a basic system of peer reviews and ratings. While the top rated content ends up on Page One, all content is treated as important and sent to various syndicated channels.

Not just another gaming news website.

While there are currently dozens of quality news oriented gaming websites on the internet which deliver a steady stream of gaming related news, reviews and opinions, the opinions they often give are rarely that of the average gamer and rarely is the voice of the average gamer heard.

The unfortunate casualty in corporate sponsored and "traditional" news media is the gap where the reader is left to decipher what is an honest opinion and what opinions are driven by the bottom line. Zergwatch bridges that gap by giving ordinary gamers an actual voice beyond their current domain of message boards and tucked away comments at the bottom of a story. At Zergwatch, ordinary gamers and bloggers play the role of writer, editor and critic. Everything posted to Zergwatch is open to uncensored community review as long as basic community standards are met.

A successful alpha test.

On February 1st, 2008, Zergwatch announced a one month open alpha stress test in which 8,000 users participated, posting 942 articles and reading over 24,000 news articles in the 29 day period. "Our initial testing results were well beyond our expectations. The Zergwatch website launched February 1st for limited testing purposes and delivered over 24,000 gaming news articles to the gaming community." explained Phil Stilton, CEO of Stilton Company, LLC. "Stilton Company's aggressive approach to marketing our content is what has made our other social news projects hugely successful, which in the end, will serve to benefit entire gaming industry."

On March 10, 2008, Zergwatch will be expanding its testing and beginning an official open public beta where gamers, bloggers, web admins, editors and publishers can begin submitting their content.
