It launched Friday morning: Users will be able to find high-resolution pages featuring HD trailers, game play videos and reviews for the latest games. They’ll also be posting essential release information, so folks will know exactly when they can get your hands on a game they’ve been eyeing. The Video game hub launches on PCs 11/15 and will be rolling out to all Hulu Plus enabled devices over the next few months.
Oscar Rohena, Hulu Content Partner Manager, had this to say in a company blog post:
Introducing Hulu Video Games
Those of us who love video games know what it’s like to play the latest trailer over…and over…and over again…in anticipation of the game’s launch. It can become a problem that borders on an addiction. Before we can get our hands on the latest game, all we have is that lovely… tantalizing… trailer. So we watch, analyze and memorize it until the next one is released, and then we do the same with the next one, and the next one, until the release date finally arrives.
In case it’s not clear, we love video games at Hulu. So for this busy video game season, we’ve got you covered. We’ve taken a big first step in feeding the game trailer addiction by bringing you the new Video Games hub on Hulu. You can find it at www.hulu.com/videogames.
In the Video Games hub on Hulu, you’ll be able to find beautiful pages featuring HD trailers, game play videos and reviews for the latest games. We’ll also have essential release information, so you know exactly when you can get your hands on that game you’re eyeing. It’s available on the PC today, and will be rolling out to all Hulu Plus enabled devices over the next few months.
Smack dab in the middle of the most exciting time of the year for gamers, we’ve gone back to revolutionary times Boston in “Assassin’s Creed III,” welcomed back Master Chief with “Halo 4,” and gotten a glimpse of future warfare with “Black Ops 2.”
Soon, we’ll showcase the next generation of video games with the release of the Nintendo Wii U, which brings us game fanatics titles such as “New Super Mario Bros U,” “Nintendo Land” and “SiNG Party” to your living room. Even our favorite mouse Mickey is joining the party with “Epic Mickey 2” (and the 3DS title “Power of Illusion“).
Next year promises to be a blockbuster year as well with the upcoming releases of “BioShock Infinite,” “Dead Space 3,” “The Elder Scrolls Online,” “Tomb Raider” and “Injustice: Gods Among Us,” to name a few. Even “Grand Theft Auto” is back for round five (and yup, we have the newest “GTA V” trailer, right here).
We’ve just gotten started and there is a lot more to come. Game on.
