GAME may have shut the doors on its local operations almost a year ago, but bits and pieces of the company still exist. Take for instance the domain “game.com.au”, a valuable chunk of online real estate. Rather than sit dormant, the name has been picked up by a large player… just not one directly involved with video games.
As Steve Wright over at Stevivor reports, deal site Catch of the Day — or more accurately, the creatively-named company behind it, CatchOfTheDay.com.au Pty Ltd — snapped up the domain back in November 2012 (CAPTCHA required).
It goes without saying the domain would be ideal for a games-related deal site, in the same vein as Catch of the Day. Or, the company could have no interest in using it whatsoever and is simply cyber-squatting, in the hopes another party might purchase it from them for a fair bit of coin.
