You probably already know about the General/0Day tracker BitShock (BSk) which has already been featured several times here on FILEnetworks Blog. This post however is about Games BitShock (gBSK), a separate project run by the same crew behind the general tracker. As the name implies, Games BitShock is a specialized games BitTorrent tracker that indexes PC and console games. gBSK isn’t exactly a brand new tracker – it was first launched back in 2008 but the site didn’t stay online for long. Now, in May 2009, Games BitShock has returned. It seems to have been rebuilt from scratch and things are looking much better for the site this time around.
Currently there are over 3100 registered members on Games BitShock. Over 375 games torrents have been added to the tracker since 27th of April (in about a month’s time). These are pretty good statistics for a start up tracker – gBSK in this case no doubt had a lot of help from it’s big brother BitShock.org.
Speaking of the content on this tracker, it has PC, Console and Mobile games (majority PC games) indexed. Almost all new releases in the past 2-3 months as well as some great classic titles are available for download ( check out Jazz Jackrabbit collection and Classic 3D Shooters *MEGA PACK* :P ). There are a lot of torrents ending with ‘gBSK’ tag on Games BitShock – such torrents are non scene p2p uploads probably not found on most other sites. Following is a screenshot of depicting part of gBSK’s torrent index:
By the way, somebody (staff or an admin) here must really like the Grand Theft Auto series – there are a lot of GTA torrents and the default site theme is also based on a GTA title.
gBSK still has a long way to go in order to challenge well established trackers such as Blackcats Games and BitGAMER. However, the start so far has been great – remember that all popular trackers start small. For example Appz BitShock, another tracker in the BitShock family, too started out with only a handful torrents - today it’s one of the largest software trackers in the world. So let’s hope the trend continues and gBSK too becomes a leading games tracker in the future. If you are interested in getting an account, registrations are open – all new users get 2GB free upload upon joining.
