Monthly Gaming Swag In A Crate


The fine folks over at Loot Crate, the defacto standard in monthly geek subscription services, announced a new venture today sure to please gaming fans everywhere.

Loot Gaming looks to become the head honcho in delivering the monthly gaming geekiness in a themed mystery box each month for a nominal fee of $25 USD. Much like their other offerings in anime, pets & core crate services, the included items will revolve around the top video game brands and deliver exclusive items found nowhere else.

As someone who is extremely familiar with these services for multiple years, I am very anxious to see how well this gaming targeted offer delivers when compared to other gaming centric subscription services from companies like 1Up Box & Arcade Block. In fact, keep an eye on PS Nation for a series of editorials covering these monthly mystery swag boxes as we dive deeper into what they offer, what they cost and are they worth your hard earned dollars and cents, nickels and dimes.
