GamersBand was created to give gamers a better way to meet up and have fun. The site allows people to connect online, but it also helps with off line connections. Users who just purchased a new game can find others in their local area to play with. They can even develop friendships by hanging out together and talking about the game they both love. As of October 2010, GamersBand received financial backing from Petit Poucet.
There are quite a few gamer forums out there that allow people to discuss a specific game or type of games. These are usually intended to be places for socializing, instruction, and general information. However, GamersBand takes it to another level by encouraging users that just purchased a new game to find others that play it, too. Not only does this help users connect, but helps them get the most fun out of their new game purchase.
The GamersBand website features a basic white background with blue and red highlights and a matching “GB” logo. The site also features scrolling banners that spotlight some of the most popular game titles spanning many different platforms in full, brilliant color. This really works well for the site since the white background alone would be dull, but too many colors and the scrolling images would be too busy. The site also features attractive awards, shaped like wall plaques, displaying various achievements. The achievements are also attractive enough to encourage users to get them for more than just the bragging rights.
To become a GamersBand member, users can click the blue “Join Now” button found along the right hand side of the homepage. The registration form asks for an email address, password, nickname, and optional photo or avatar. The user can also choose to sign up quickly through Facebook or Twitter. The second step asks the user to participate in geo-location (by selecting their location on the map or entering it). The final step asks the user to select the gaming platforms they play on, which includes Nintendo Wii, Playstation 2 and 3, Sony PSP, Nintendo DS, Xbox 360, Mac, and Gaming PC. The user can also add titles of games they already have. The user is then advised that they have completed registration but must click on a link emailed to them to finalize the process.
GamersBand is a social networking website for people who love video games. The site benefits from having more players available to the community. There is no payment required to create an account and connect with others on GamersBand. Users can win achievements and earn badges all for free.
Naturally, GamersBand is intended for video gamers all over. The site makes it easy to connect based on specific gaming platforms or game titles. Users can also publish achievements through Twitter and Facebook, adding more depth to the site.
