Welcome to MCV India - and a new era in games media for the region.
The aim of MCV India is simple: to become a trusted and prolific resource for news affecting all games industry sectors in the region, encompassing both trade and consumers.
At its core is this very website, supported by editorial email services, which you can sign up for here - it only takes a couple of minutes to register.
Over the weeks, months and years ahead, we will talk to and about Indian retailers, developers, publishers, format holders, distributors, media brands and service companies.
We will break news, provide data and share opinions.
We will promote products and spark debate.
We will interview the most senior executives in the local business – and drill down into the detail of your marketing campaigns.
