Physical Copies of Indie Games

 

 

Cordova, TN; June 25, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing a way for independent video games also referred to as indie games to grow and thrive. The biggest problem most indie games face is recognition. Many indie games have a real problem reaching million upon millions of families because they are downloadable only. They need to expand and grow into the physical copy realm. More people can be reached in this arena than can be reached in the downloadable only realm on the Personal Computer, Xbox One, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Wii U, Wii, Xbox 360, Nintendo 3DS, and Playstation Vita. By avoiding the physical copy realm they are limiting their sales, and decreasing their growth potential.

Cartridges and discs have plummeted in price. An indie company can easily purchase DVD’s, and write their games on them. I would love to see indie video game companies come up with new and innovative ways to sell physical copies of their games. Through their own websites, maybe through some new indie only video game retailer, Amazon, and more. There are plenty of online places they could sell physical copies. I would also like to see retailers like Gamestop, Target, Best Buy, Walmart, Kroger, and more allow a small space to sell indie video games. The prices should be lower than the other video games, and it would appeal to families, as well as price conscious gamers. I believe this could be the next explosive growth for the indie video game community.

What about you? What do you think? Would you purchase a physical copy of an indie game? Would you prefer to find it at your local retailer or make the purchase online? Would you appreciate the storage space saved on the hard drive of your gaming machine? What concerns can you see from physical copies of indie games being sold? It worked for Minecraft, Angry Birds, and Terraria. Who else could you see this idea working for?


God bless,
