With India easily being one of the biggest markets for mobile gaming, there’s a good chance Amazon could include benefits for mobile gamers as well. Games like Apex Legends offer exclusive in-game content for Prime Gaming members, so it looks like Indian gamers can finally join in on the action as well.
It’s unclear when the service will launch, but it’s highly likely that an Amazon announcement is imminent. Amazon Prime members are surely looking forward to hearing more and seeing what games will be on offer once the service goes live.
Historically, India hasn’t been among the biggest markets for PC gaming, but that could be changing with the advent of cloud gaming and other such services. JioGames has introduced a beta version of its cloud gaming service and it seems to be running smoothly so far. Now, with the launch of Prime Gaming, PC gaming could become much more accessible to gamers in the country.
So far, there has been little indication of benefits for console gamers, but that could change over time. This is quite an exciting time to be a gamer in India as it seems that the major players in the industry have started to take notice of the growth of the gaming community in the country. It will be interesting to see if Amazon goes in a different direction and offers Prime Gaming as a standalone service on top of being bundled with Amazon Prime.
