Press Start Australia was created at the beginning of 2014 with the vision of creating content for all gaming audiences in Australia. Press Start’s goals are to provide updated gaming & technology news and reviews to audiences all over the world while keeping Australian influences close to heart. Press Start content has a structure that is easy to understand for the casual audience, whilst still in depth enough for the hardcore gamer.
Press Start has one of the biggest social media followings of any Australian technology website in Australia, a following that only keeps growing. Press Start’s ‘Start Cast’ was featured on iTunes’ New & Noteworthy section for over 3 months. Press Start Australia was nominated for two Optus IT Journalism awards in 2014, nominated in the ‘Best Gaming Coverage’ and ‘Best Independent Media’ categories.
In 2016 Press Start Australia was acquired by Southern Cross Austereo, one of Australia’s largest radio, TV and digital networks, with a reach of up to 95% of Australians.
