Introducing Resero, Our New Video Network

For years we’ve been saying that the future is video, it’s actually why we invested such a lot of money into video equipment from such an early age. It’s also why today, on the eve of our bi-annual London Comic Con stage show, it gives me the greatest pleasure to announce our new venture: Resero, our video-centric network for our video content moving forward.
What exactly does that mean, I hear you scream? In the short-term it means we’re packing our bags up and heading back to YouTube for all our videos, something that readers have been asking us to do for a while now – and we’re always listening. It also means you’ll see even more bespoke video content (like this and this), under both the Xbox Achievements & PlayStation Trophies banner, and the non-platform specific Resero banner too, whether that’s more early glimpses at gameplay with Let’s Plays, more intriguing features or loads of live streams. All the links to our new video network, from Twitter and Facebook, to Twitch and YouTube are below. Give us a like/follow/subscribe/cookie/virtual hug/high five, etc. You know the score. It also means we’re launching a completely video-centric website – yes, our third site, yay – before our London Comic Con show kicks off tomorrow.
That’s the short-term. In the long-term it’s even more exciting. Our ultimate aim is to create a multi-channel network – like Machinima – on YouTube where we welcome members of our community under our umbrella. You help us to help you. We have a huge stake in the monstrous niche of video game achievement and trophy guides and we’ll be looking for perfect partners who want to create walkthroughs, guides and whatever else they want with the added incentive of getting preferential front page treatment. The ultimate bonus scenario in all of this is that the site ultimately gets better quality video content when it comes to the guides, which is nothing but a win. We win, the content providers win, the guide users win, everyone wins.
So yeah, that’s our long-term goal, but for the short-term you get more video content on a platform you’ve been wanting us to re-adopt for quite some time.
Oh, and what’s that? Why “Resero” – pronounced rez-aero? Simple, because it means to unlock in Latin. That, and it makes us seem like some cool corporate espionage entity.
