Digital and Retail Distribution
International videogame distribution on both Digital and Retail channels on all existing platforms is managed internally by the Group via a global distribution network structured in local offices and with international partners. The Group distributes its own retail projects through the leading stores including Walmart, Auchan, Game Stop and MediaWorld.
With our global digital distribution capabilities, we offer deep sector experience and consolidated relationships with first-party partners including Steam, Epic Games, Sony, Microsoft, Nintendo, Google and Apple. Digital download offers for videogames have grown considerably in the last year with the arrival of new methods for distribution of video-entertainment content (like online social networks), new PC platforms and new marketplaces for tablet and mobile devices, in addition to main marketplaces like Sony, Microsoft, Steam, Nintendo, Apple and others.
In Italy, retail distribution is managed under the brand Halifax, a major player in the distribution business. Halifax has successfully distributed international titles including Pro Evolution Soccer, Tomb Raider, Resident Evil, Metal Gear Solid, Street Fighter and many others. In Italy, the Group also distributes the Yu-Gi-Oh! trading cards through specialized channels and newsstands.
