Electronic game development is taking off in Australia and the UK.
Electronic game cards have been coming to the US and Europe since 2014, and now retailers like Wal-Mart, EB Games, and EB Games Australia are stocking up on them.
There are currently only about 100,000 EA Electronic Games cards available in Australia, according to the Australian Bureau of Statistics.
But there’s plenty of room for growth.
The Australian government is set to introduce new laws that allow for the creation of digital content in a digital medium, including new games, music and film.
The Electronic Entertainment Digital Economy Act is expected to be introduced on January 10.
Wal-Mart is already selling digital EA games and video games for $0.99 and $0 and up, and it’s working with EA to sell digital EA card games and cards online for $2.99 each.
EB Games will soon begin selling digital cards online.
EB Australia is also planning to sell EA cards for $1.99, but it says the online format will be more convenient for consumers.
“With digital, we don’t need to pay a premium for that and also we have the ability to put it in the store, so we can offer it in a way that we can actually do more with it,” said Andrew Dolan, EB Australia’s chief marketing officer.
Dolan says EA’s EA cards have already been downloaded more than 4 million times.
“I think people are more and more excited about having EA products in their homes,” he said.
“It’s great to see people really want to explore their worlds and make the most of the opportunities that we have.”
Electronic games are increasingly popular with gamers, and the industry is looking to create new products.
But Electronic Entertainment Development Association (EEDA) chairman Richard D’Augello says Australia’s current laws could have the unintended effect of restricting the growth of EA’s game development and distribution.
“We’re seeing this from the U.S. as well as the EU, where we have laws restricting EA games development and development,” he told News Corp Australia.
“There is this perception that it’s a barrier to development for other developers, and that is a very big concern for us.”
That is what the EEDA is working to ensure that we provide as much development as we can for EA, and I think it’s going to be a big success.”EA has also announced that it will begin selling games for iOS devices, but there is no word yet on whether the company plans to offer its digital EA cards to Android, iOS, and Windows.
