While Amazon discontinued multiple services all over the globe and in India too, the e-commerce giant is up to something new. Rumours have it that Amazon is working on launching the Amazon Prime Gaming services in India. The Amazon Prime Gaming service will allow subscribers to get in-game items at no additional cost. The service is being launched for PC gaming in the country. To recall, Amazon rolled out the Prime Gaming service in India in 2020 that came with in-game mobile items for Amazon Prime subscribers.
A well-known name in the gaming industry, Rishi Alwani, revealed that the website had established a dedicated page for gaming services by Amazon. The page says Prime Gaming is now in India. Nonetheless, if you click on the games or any in-game content option, the site shows an error, ‘Prime Gaming is not available. Other content of the page includes, ‘with Prime Gaming, unlock your instant access to tons of exclusive content…each and every month.’ Not only the website, the smartphone application also shows the gaming service page but gives the same error.
Amazon Prime Gaming details
Considering what Amazon has to say, the company has not released any official statement regarding the same until now. It would be interesting to see which game will be part of the gaming services by Amazon for PC. Talking the Amazon Prime Gaming US version, it is offering eight games this month, including Rose Riddle 2: Werewolf Shadow, Desert Child, Spinach, Quake, The Amazing American Circus, and Doors: Paradox, Brothers: A Tale of Two Sons. Speculations are that the Indian version of Amazon Prime Gaming will also provide a similar kind of experience.
One thing which we are sure of is that the Amazon Prime Gaming service will have a neck-to-neck competition against other gaming services like the Sony Play Station Plus and Microsoft Xbox game pass. The operation of the Amazon service will be quite different from what the other two offer. We will be able to compare these services better as soon as the Amazon one makes its debut in India.
