Arcade Boom Sweeps Across…India?

Shaggy May 15, 2007 1

While there might not be any arcades near where you live, many arcades are starting to pop-up in India according to an article at InterGame Online. One company, the Australian-based Timezone Entertainment has opened up six arcades in the last two years while another company called Galaxy Entertainment currently runs 13 FECs across the country. Thanks to the huge youth population in India, there is plenty of interest for arcades, which are primarily found in shopping malls. In fact the article states that arcades are one of the primary drivers to malls in India. Sounds kind of familiar

So what does this mean to you? As interest grows worldwide, so will the demand for more games. Arcade game makers don’t sell their games solely to Japan, Europe and the US…go just about anywhere in the world and you are bound to find a recognizable game in any arcade you can find.
