Aspyr debuts The Gamerhood

Aspyr Media today announced the development of a new game application entitled "The Gamerhood," which will allow users to purchase and download games directly to their Macs using a standard internet connection. Aspyr said it will release more specific information on the Gamerhood's capabilities over the next few months, as well as a list of titles that will be immediately available upon the application's launch. Features include the ability to purchase as well as download games online, play games without physical media (CDs or DVDs), and the ability to check hardware compatibility against a game's minimum system requirements prior to purchasing the title. The Gamerhood will be free for all Mac users, and is slated for launch in the Fall of 2006.

Additional features

The software alerts users to current Aspyr projects and new games, allowing them to register titles online. The Gamerhood provides game updates via the internet, offers installs for those updates, and features a user-friendly interface for a convenient way to organize a personal gaming catalog.

The Gamerhood includes parental control functionality, allowing adults to restrict online game store material and game play based on ESRB ratings. Users will also be able to take advantage from special offers, according to Aspyr.
