Sell Physical Copies Directly to Consumers

 

 

Cordova, TN; April 13, in the year of our Lord 2015--Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is addressing an important issue within the video game industry. Too many video game companies are missing out on revenue. They are denying themselves sales. They are leaving money on the table. They are missing out on profits. What am I talking about? I am talking about video game companies selling directly to the consumers. Many of us have seen the pie chart that shows the chunk retail stores get from each video game sale. Why not bypass that chunk, and pass the savings along to the consumers? Plus retail chains stop carrying certain products when sales do not match their expectations.

Here is the thing about lower than expected sales. There are still sales. Consumers will still purchase the games. The lower the price, the better shot these companies have at increasing their sales. Once the retail chains stop carrying a video game is the perfect time for these video game companies to sell the games themselves. Besides they will most likely have inventory that they need to offload anyways. Sell it yourself for a fair price, and you will get something for the inventory you currently own. Once a game sells out these companies can look at how many sell per month, and have more made - according to the demand. That way they are not out much money in this entire process. This is a win-win scenario for the video game companies and the consumers.

There are existing video game companies that are following the advice of Family Friendly Gaming on this particular issue. Natsume is a fine example. Consumers can purchase games from their catalog. A few of the prices are too high on their online store. Many of them are reasonable in my opinion. Natsume is showing the rest of the video game industry that profits can be made off of their older games. Consumers love physical copies of games. Consumers love getting a deal. Consumers love going directly to the source and paying less money. How many more video game companies will follow Natsume in offering physical copies of games to consumers directly?

There are so many different ways video game companies could fulfill this consumer request. They could start their own online store on their own websites. They could start their own account on Amazon and sell through them. There is eBay and plenty of other websites that will happily let you sell your products if you do not want to spend the money on making your own online store. Too many video game companies are leaving money sitting on the table. They should look at used prices for their video games and realize they could make money off of selling more of their own games. Sell them directly to the consumers. This is a way for companies losing money to make some of it back.


God bless,
