Sony Interactive Entertainment acquires Repeat.gg, an online gaming platform where players compete for real money and coins in their favorite video games







Over the past few years, PlayStation has made an effort to expand further into the field of electronic games. Last year they made a big acquisition when they acquired EVO, the biggest fighting game tournament. Today, Sony Interactive Entertainment announced the acquisition of Repeat.gg, a global online platform where gamers can compete for real money and coins in your favorite video games on consoles and PC.

Repeat.gg CEO Aaron Fletcher said, “Repeat.gg was designed to enable easy-to-enter and scalable new tournament formats for millions of players. We’re excited to join the PlayStation team and work together to improve the variety of tournament experiences players can enjoy, regardless of skill level.

Speaking further about why Repeat is joining PlayStation, the company said, “We’ve been talking to SIE for a while now as we wanted to make sure our vision and goals were aligned. At Repeat, we have always focused on “esports for everyone”. We want to bring the thrill and rush of competition to every player, regardless of skill level. We have achieved this by creating automated, easy-to-access tournaments that can scale to millions of concurrent players and have always focused on creating an inclusive environment where players can compete, improve and have fun! SIE reflects this vision, and with their support, Repeat will have the opportunity to evolve and create esports events for millions of players. Our goal is to deliver truly unique experiences on a scale we could not achieve without the support of SIE. »

The company has hosted over 100,000 tournaments with over 2.3 million participants.

Repeat said they would continue to support PC, mobile, and other consoles alongside PlayStation. This includes adding the most popular competitive game titles, regardless of the platform they are on.

“At PlayStation, our vision for esports has always been about breaking down barriers for players to compete at all levels,” said Steven Roberts, Vice President of Global Competitive Gaming at Sony Interactive Entertainment.
