Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2013
Pwnit!. Inc., a Los Angeles-based startup, released early results today around the launch of http://www.pwnit.com, the unique new video-sharing website designed specifically to share video clips of best in-game moments.
Anyone can create a profile on the website and upload their clips to share with friends and other Pwnit! users. These clips can also be entered into weekly tournaments (called “Ladders”) where videos go head-to-head against each other for votes to win prizes. Ladders to date have focused on Call of Duty, Dead or Alive 5, racing titles, sports titles and popular PC games including StarCraft, Minecraft and League of Legends.
“We’ve got some great Ladders running and look forward to adding more over the coming weeks,” said Pwnit!, Inc. Founder Shane Vorster. “Ladders engage and reward both new and existing fans in a new and innovative way.”
“We’ve enjoyed great feedback and support from video game communities, who are the reason why we created the Pwnit! platform,” said Co-Founder John O’Connell. “Alongside Tecmo Koei and Team NINJA, fan sites such as FreeStepDodge.com and DOAWorld.com have helped inspire Ladder objectives. With the new Xbox One and PS4 making it easier than ever to share gaming clips, we’re looking forward to growing our audience rapidly over the coming months.”
During its closed beta, Pwnit.com has attracted thousands of visitors and awarded prizing to more than 30 winners across 10 Ladders, including DLC for Dead Or Alive, games, gift cards for Amazon.com and much more. Pwnit.com is currently giving a free sweepstakes entry for a chance to win a PlayStation 4 or Xbox One console to everyone who uploads a video on any Ladder.
