GamersTube

GamersTube was founded in 2006 and sunset in October of 2013. During it’s 7 year lifespan GamersTube was at one point the highest quality HD video site dedicated to gamers, built a dedicated user based of over 80,000 users, was used by Curse.com as the official Blizzcon 2008 panel video host, and introduced numerous ways to improve the online video viewing experience for the gaming community, including the Gamers Marketplace. GamersTube also owned several smaller ancillary websites targeted to just one game or part of the gaming community. These sites included Spore Videos, Call of Duty Videos, Star Trek Movie Trailer, 1337Talk.com a 1337 code translator, MMORPGNews.com and more.

To everyone who was a part of this special journey I wanted to give a heartfelt thank you. Especially to Jeremy “Techmnkyz” May and Tony “Cerealkilla” Chapman, without whom GamersTube would have never been built or succeeded in any fashion.

If you’re looking for a good alternative site to use, unfortunately YouTube is probably your best option. I am also a huge fan of everything the guys at Twitch.tv are doing and hope they stick around to keep giving the community a great live streaming experience.

Game on.

    • Anony,

      We had issues generating sustainable revenue and bigger issues improving the platform to keep pace with YouTube. We had a good head start, but came up short.
