Founded in 2000 and trading as a retail website in 2002, Gameseek is a specialist internet retailer based in Cheshire in the UK, offering a huge range of Video Games, Toys, Blu-Ray and DVD movies, as well as Electronics, Computers & Peripherals, Books and Clothing.
That makes us:
2 years older than Facebook (founded in 2004)
3 years older than YouTube (founded in 2005)
4 years older than Twitter (founded in 2006)
That’s right, we’re officially old! (Wise?)
Deep down though, we’re gamers and it’s what we’re massively passionate about.
Even from our humble beginnings (from our CEO’s bedroom!), we have been first and foremost about bringing games to our great customers, at the best value. Our aim now – as it was back then – is to make this shopping experience as easy and enjoyable as possible.
During this time, we have been nominated for Online Retailer of the Year, MCV Industry Excellence Awards 2007, 2008 and 2009 and also for Retailer of the Year, CVG Golden Joystick Awards 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009 and 2013.
We pride ourselves on being one of the best places to get the latest games and huge inventory of items (250,000 at the last count!), as well as being thankful for having a large customer base of over 3 million. Unlike larger companies however, we still have the same CEO with the same clarity of vision, with no shareholders to answer to or dictate how we operate.
There’s no time to stand still however. As we close in on our second decade of trading, the sad fact is that we’ve seen many large name businesses in our industry come and go, and we know that there’s no time to rest on our laurels. In 2017, we continued to grow and have brought more features to our customers.
We launched a brand new website, we launched our Marketplace, we introduced Cyclonic Deals to bring the games to the gamers at groundbreaking prices, and we released Game Hunter: a web based interactive game for our valued community and contributors.
For both short and longer term, we have big plans and intend to keep growing both within the UK and worldwide.
