This week on MCV India, we’ve taken up the case for something we believe the Indian games industry sorely needs – a dedicated trade body focussed purely on gaming.
There’s also been a fair amount of activity in the games retail space this week. And of course, with E3 recently concluded, we’ve also highlighted a couple of games that stood out for us.
Here’s a quick round-up of some of this week’s stories from MCVuk.com’s sister site, MCV India:
