What is Game Planet?

Gameplanet was created with the vision of bringing to New Zealanders a place where you can play games, buy games, talk games and meet gamers.

We provide multiplayer Internet game servers for a variety of popular games, we mirror a wide range of gaming related files and provide incentives to play by organising and sponsoring competitions. We sell games, taking pride in having the widest selection of games and the most knowledgable staff in New Zealand. Our team of writers maintain up-to-date News, Reviews, Previews and Feature articles for PC and console platforms. We provide a space for gamers to interact, we run a local IRC chat server, and we operate a network of specialised community-oriented New Zealand gaming sites.



Gameplanet Forums is possibly the largest Internet user community of its kind in New Zealand, with over 30,000 registered members (and growing). The site is a focal point for gaming in NZ, providing a place for discussion of a wide range of games and topics, and acts as a meeting place for gamers and gaming teams.


Gameplanet Store is one of New Zealand’s top ecommerce sites, and possibly the number one NZ business-to-consumer etail site by traffic. Gameplanet Store has consistently ranked the number one site in Hitwise’s Video and Games Shopping category since Hitwise began recording. Gameplanet Store began life as “GameZone Online” in 1996, making it also one of NZ’s longest-running ecommerce sites. Gameplanet Store now also has operations in Australia.



Gameplanet was judged winner of the “Best Youth Site” category two years running in the NetGuide Web Awards 2002 and 2003, and was a finalist in 2004. The site was also nominated a finalist in the “Best Entertainment Site” category in the NetGuide Web Awards 2003 and 2004.
