Good Old Games to sell newer games

first_imgGood Old Games (GOG) has become a very popular online destination for gamers due to its unique offering of old games. Collecting all the classic titles from the past few decades of gaming, and offering them up DRM free for a few dollars each is a fantastic resource to have available. Older gamers get to replay the classics from their childhood, and younger gamers can see what gaming used to be like.The one problem with GOG’s setup is the fact there are only so many old games they can offer. In September last year they admitted there’s only around 250 good old games left, so when they run out we will only get a trickle of new titles each year.GOG’s management has a solution to this problem though, and it looks like other digital gaming services are set to get some new competition. Good Old Games is going to start offering newer games from next year.Until now the games added to GOG’s line-up have been at least 3 years old, but now games released within the last 3 years will be considered. They will carry a higher price point, but the DRM-free policy will continue.Hopefully, this will mean games I miss over the holiday season might be on GOG by next Christmas for a much lower price. It will likely also see indie developers flock to the service to offer their back catalog of titles. For consumers, it’s another digital store to visit for recent titles, and more competition online that should hopefully keep prices down.last_img
