GMG also has a social network, Playfire, which allows gamers to review games, publish their best results and follow what their friends are doing. This activity provides significant data which is used by GMG for new and pre-owned games promotions.

GMG is currently selling games in 180 countries worldwide although the US is the single biggest market accounting for 40% of sales.

Established in 2010 by CEO Paul Sulyok, GMG employs over 60 people based in London.
