A few days ago, the nice people at MCV had a word with Atindriya Bose, Master Chief of all things Playstation in India. He mentioned that Sony could start locally replicating PS3 games within the country as early as this month. While it might not seem like much, here are some possible implications of this move and how it could affect your game purchases. Cheaper games Yes, rather than paying an obnoxious Rs 2,999 for a video game, there’s a good chance that you’d be paying less, as Bose hinted. Hopefully in the Rs 2,499 range of yore, if not less, since there isn’t a cost to bear for importing games as they would be made in the same country. We could also see games released across more price points i.e. More games at Rs 1,499 and Rs 1,899. Used games market crash Local replication will ensure that pricing on older, used titles will go down even further than the paltry value they hold right now. Do you have old titles that you want to get rid off? The time is now. Sure, newer games will hold their value, but back catalogue will not. So if you’ve got a copy…
