LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Newegg, the number one tech-focused e-retailer in North America, today announced the beginning of Gametober™. Throughout the month of October, the company will feature a host of ghoulish, gamer-centric events, frighteningly good deals and shocking prizes. This October is one of the video game industry’s busiest months as publishers release a barrage of new titles ahead of the upcoming holiday shopping season. Newegg’s Gametober™ adds to the excitement with giveaways, sponsorships and product exclusives for video game enthusiasts.
“Gamers are a very important part of the Newegg community and Gametober™ lets Newegg focus on the tremendous number of gaming-related releases this month,” said Soren Mills, Chief Marketing Officer for Newegg North America. “Newegg is sponsoring this year’s StarCraft II World Championship Series, and UC Irvine’s ‘Midnight Finals’ viewing event for the League of Legends Championships. To top it off we will give one lucky winner a complete travel package to BlizzCon.”
Newegg has planned two gaming-focused events at its Hybrid Center in Los Angeles during Gametober™. The first is on Oct. 10 from 6–10 p.m. PDT, showcasing the recent Haswell X99 launch and is sponsored by Gigabyte and Rosewill.
