vgmTorrents is really a unique private BitTorrent tracker. It’s probably the only tracker in the world that is completely dedicated to video game music. It’s true that sites such as LZTR have soundtracks from games but it’s not really their specialty. vgmTorrents on the other hand is all about official soundtracks (OST) of games. Most of the game OST available on this tracker are pretty rare and not usually found on even the largest of General trackers. vgmTorrents is a new entrant to the BitTorrent scene ( launched on May 2009) but things have so far looked good for this tracker.
The following text which describes vgmTorrents and it’s goals is quoted from the site’s ‘About’ page:
vgmTorrents is a videogame music related private tracker. We do care about the quality and reliability of our releases, trying to offer any kind of VGM content, from soundtracks to documentaries and video interviews. Our goal is to let anybody know about videogame music, a genre which is generally overlooked, largely because most of those CDs are out of stock, or only available in Japan and Asian online stores, with high-priced shipping costs. Anyone can upload VGM stuff on vgmTorrents, though registration is required to ensure anybody does have a positive sharing ratio. You are more than welcome in the community - enjoy videogame music!
As of 27/6/2009 vgmTorrents tracks over 200 video game music torrents. Most of the audio is in lossless formats while some OST are in MP3 and AAC. Check out the following screenshot to get a better idea about the site’s content:
One of the best things about vgmTorrents is that it’s not just a torrent tracker. They have a frequently updated blog (which is the homepage), a twitter account, Last.fm page, live RSS feeds and more. At the time this post is being written, public registrations are enabled so check it out. If you are a video game music enthusiast or a collector, this tracker is a must have.
