Lynx2Games™ launches today as a new online video game collaborative consumption service pairing users to rent and own popular titles at a highly discounted price. Powered by social e-commerce marketplace LynxSquare™, Lynx2Games separates itself from retailers and rental services with unique offerings and share-the-cost initiative, enabling players to team up on purchases of the most anticipated new releases.
Inspired by the growing collaborative consumption movement, Lynx2Games connects video game players, providing them with the option of renting a new game for three weeks for $19.99 and then shipping it to the buyer, who pays $39.99 for ownership. Using the site’s social shopping platform Friendsheet™, Lynx2Games connects users directly with fellow community members — as well as with their Facebook and Twitter connections — who want to share a game and its cost.
Renters save 50 percent off the price of playing a game for three weeks from grocery store rental kiosks and have access to the most popular titles near release dates compared with popular mail order game rental services. Buyers not only get to own the most coveted games soon after their releases, they also save 30 to 60 percent off full retail priced games. Their savings are also higher than purchasing used games from major national retailers and resale websites.
Users are also encouraged to invite friends and family members through popular social media channels, allowing them to partner on renting or purchasing games through Lynx2Games. In addition, those who purchase games through the service have the option to re-sell to Lynx2Games network members.
A flagship brand of LynxSquare, Lynx2Games and its founders Momin and Ahmed Moledina are members of the Austin Technology Incubator, a non-profit business within the University of Texas that assists early-stage technology companies to increase their odds of success and decrease their time to capital and markets.
