Playkon is a gaming website featuring news and rumors about games, companies and the industry, along with screenshots and plenty of trailers.
The website's content is maintained by Serban Stokker (Stokky), with prior contribution from Paul Sarateanu (doomnezeu). The website was developed by Serban Stokker.
The "kon Network" began in July 2006 with the launch of Animekon
- a website dedicated to Japanese animation and other forms of visual (sub)culture. In September 2006, the second website was added to the network - TVkon
, featuring trailers for games, movies and animes, which are also integrated in the other websites. Next came CryoCopy
, launched in spring 2007 as a web archiving service that allows manual caching of Internet pages (also used by the other content-focused websites). By July 2007, a completely new version of Animekon was finished, which allowed for faster deployment of the following websites based on the same code - Wipefest
(a World of Warcraft blog) in late 2007, and Playkon
in February 2008. Scikon
followed in October 2008 as a simple science news aggregator website, with the same code also being used by Animekon Feeds
as of February 2009.Playkon staffSerban Stokker
