P2P becomes a cash cow for PC gamers

P2P becomes a cash cow for PC gamers

"Video game players will now be able to legally download PC games and earn cash back for sharing them through a closed peer-to-peer network, thanks to a new deal between Wurld Media and Trymedia.

The owner of the P2P site Peer Impact said it has opened its doors to the PC gaming provider in a contract that makes more than 1,000 titles available to Wurld Media subscribers. The two companies are currently in beta testing. Officials said Peer Impact is expected to have games available for download in the coming weeks.

Members earn cash back if they help redistribute games purchased through the network, representatives with Wurld Media said. Members simply leave their computers on, and if another Peer Impact member buys a game from that computer, the P2P said it will reimburse that member with credit towards future purchases." [more]
