ECA Offering Military & Student Discounts

Were you extremely inspired by our interview with Hal Halpin, President of the ECA, to join the ECA’s cause…but didn’t want to pony up the cash for an account? Well the ECA is now offering $1 ECA memberships for those who can prove they have a .mil or .edu e-mail address.

ECA Vice President of Marketing, Heather Ellertson, had this to say about the newly announced promotion. “The ECA is extremely excited to launch this new, ongoing promotion for the millions of military personnel and students who have a passion for video games. The ECA strongly supports all the hard work that students and our military do, and this is our way of giving back.”

To me anything that is worth a dollar and will cover a full year of expense is a buy in my book. If, for some reason, you are still unsure if this promotion is worth it, check out the full list of membership benefits here.

Pretty much your above average gamer who plays games profusely and appreciates them even more. Been gaming since the NES but is in love with anything PlayStation. No I am not a typical fanboy...I appreciate each system for their strengths and recognize their weaknesses. I just love the PS brand. (Think along the lines as someone who likes to read but loves one author in particular). Ever since my time as #2 in the world at Resistance 2, I have taken video games much more seriously. Don't get me wrong, I am a laid back, fun guy to game with...but I always play to win.
