Intel® Partners With Green Man Gaming To Power New Intel® Software Distribution Hub

By | Press Releases | No Comments

Green Man Gaming has launched the Intel® Software Distribution Hub (Intel® SDH) today.

In partnership with Intel®, Green Man Gaming’s award-winning patented technology will power the new hub to enable premium PC hardware resellers to offer gamers the best-value hardware and game bundled promotions.

The Intel® SDH is a self-service B2B marketplace that will match hundreds of Intel’s channel partners (Intel® Technology Provider Gold and Platinum Partners) with thousands of market-leading games from Green Man Gaming’s PC game publishers.

Opening up untapped revenue streams for PC game publishers

PC game publishers will get access to the Intel® SDH where they will be able to sell individual and bundled games at multiple price points to Intel-based PC hardware resellers globally. This secure B2B platform will improve the security of game key distribution to resellers and open up new revenue streams for publishers to potentially boost sales worldwide.

Best-value bundled promotions for PC hardware reseller customers

The new platform will allow Intel’s channel and retail partners to gain access to publisher-agreed, deeply discounted prices on popular PC game titles; pre-purchase game codes before the titles are even released; and earn Green Man Gaming credit on any product in the store. These custom value-added incentives will differentiate resellers from their competitors and offer PC customers best-value hardware and game bundled promotions.

“The Intel Software Distribution Hub offers our Intel Technology Provider Gold and Platinum Partners the unique opportunity to differentiate themselves by providing a wide range of popular game titles, in addition to delivering the excellent performance and exceptional experiences our gaming customers demand,” said Ricardo Moreno, Vice President, Sales and Marketing Group – General Manager, Partner Sales Programs Organization at Intel Corporation.

“Green Man Gaming and Intel support and enhance the overall experience for gamers, from both a community and industry perspective,” said Paul Sulyok, CEO and Founder of Green Man Gaming. “I believe that the Intel Software Distribution Hub offers PC gamers the best hardware and game deals on the market and provides game publishers and Intel reseller partners within the industry the opportunity to tap into a new revenue stream and boost sales.“
