Gaming and India:
In recent years, Indian consumer behavior is experiencing a new change. A new kind of consumer segment is being created due to the innovation in internet and tech industry in India. No longer is 1Mb/s internet a big issue and network stability has improved a lot. This has led to the boom of Indian gaming Industry. Gamers that are what I would call this new segment are a fast-increasing segment of consumers whose growth has been tremendously accelerated due to the mishap of covid 19 and people being forced to stay at home.
Why is now the best time not 10 years ago:
Firstly, India was very slow in adopting the tech of fast internet. The fast and smooth-running internet that we all have today is not something that people in the past had access to. Today internet is a need, just 10 years ago internet was a luxury and many people had no access to it. So given that our tele-com industry has done a tremendous job in making internet accessible to everyone, people have now started to spend majority of their time online and using services associated with internet. Gaming being one of the most time-consuming service.
Secondly the mentality shift is what pushing Indian gaming and Indian consumers. India is now considered to have one of the youngest populations. Indian youths and young parents no longer see gaming as an evil and consider it harmful to their child’s career. New gaming consoles are being bought and people now have a much open perspective towards gaming.
Also due to the sudden covid 19 lockdowns, people in home have been looking for investments that make their stay at home much more joyful and gaming has been one of the best go to investments that can be made.
Games and the reality in India:
Though the gaming segment is clearly a fast-growing industry. There are some harsh realities that we have to face and accept. Majority of the games sold in India are expensive to buy.
To play a game you require a device which can be connected to a monitor or a screen called the console and a disc which has to inserted into the console. Now given that there are more than 500 well and award-winning games and cost of 10 of such games might be more than the investment made of consoles, there has been a steady rise in the demand of preowned discs which can be played and sold to another customer again.
Another major issue that is faced by gaming industry is piracy. Be it digital games of discs people are continuously looking for cheap cracks that allow users to play the game without downloading it and paying to the official developer. This affects both the user and the developer. Often times these cracks have mining or other codes that run in the background and slow their devices and also due to this habit of downloading and using games from unapproved gaming sites a lot of revenue is being lot.
Though the gaming industry is growing at a very fast rate, there are very few enterprises or companies that are catering to the demands of gamer.
Today we shall look at one such company which has affected more users in much less time of its operation and surfing the gaming industries wave like no other company in India.
A small step towards a very big problem:
Dacby is Indian app-based startup whose goal is to build services which can be used by the growing gaming consumer and come up with smart solution for the issues that currently persist in the gaming space majorly digital games.
As mentioned above people in India prefer second hand preowned games over original ones because they are far more economical. The consumer before would just go to his local shop and ask him for the games that the vendor had and choose from them. This often resulted in consumers not being happy about their purchase or they had to wait a long time for their second-hand CDs to arrive.
Majority of sales was done in local environment meaning that people in a place majorly sold and bought CDs from the same place. This was the first challenge that Dacby has very successfully tackled. They have an app-based platform where in people can choose from more than 200 different preowned PS4 discs and order it directly to their home This now allows people to get access to games that they want to play in just a few clicks. This platform also buys CDs from gamers who already own the discs thus removing the hurdles of a buyer demand for people who have finished playing their game. They been growing at a tremendous rate. Their dacby app has set up a quality standard for the industry and is the reason that they have been so successful.
But their major focus is on digital games the upcoming future. People have digital accounts with games in them. One of the biggest issues is that once a game has been bought and played, selling of the game is not possible, the whole account has to be sold. Again, here people generally buy accounts from trusted peers and there is no one platform which has been able to regulate and ensure a quality standard here in the digital account space.
This is the second challenge that the dacby team has resolved. In Dacby people can list their accounts on the platform. Before the listing is made public the accounts are checked and verified by the company. Once the accounts are verified the accounts are made open to the public. This has been an amazing relief to gamers as in the case of digital the chances of being cheated by the seller are high.
For a gamer Dacby has been building a strong image of quality service, and a brand of trust. The company believes in taking small steps towards improvement of life of gamers will result in a big transformation of the gaming space in India. The company also wishes to be a consumer favorite by continuously innovating and solving issues that gamers face on a daily basis.
Dacby App Overview:
Every gamer knows that buying second games can often be a headache. We explore many different shops, different platforms to find games that we love at prices that don’t hurt our pocket.
The same story goes with selling wherein finding a buyer who pays decent price for the game can be very hard.
This is where dacby entered my life and made these 2 aspects a lot more easy. Dacby is an Indian app based platform for buying and selling games and accounts . They have a wide collection of games, you can buy accounts digitally and get it via Email Delivery OR you can order physical CDs with features like cod, all India shipping. They buy the games for the maximum price in the market and also sell them for the least. It is a app that every console gamer must try once.
To give you a rough estimate on average a second hand ps4 physical CD costs around 700 to 900 Rs which is a lot but in dacby app the accounts listed were completely digital and you were getting 6 premium games in Rs 1500 which was amazing considering the cost difference.
Selling is now fun:
dacby is the only Indian platform where in digital accounts can be bought and sold. Again, the process of selling is smooth. You need to list the account on their app and the moment a buyer purchased the account the credentials were shared with the company. After the buyer had all his games installed which usually happens after one day of purchase, you get your money back.
