Robot Cache is a PC game distribution platform that will let gamers resell games.
Competition is always good. Steam is about to get some more when Robot Cache launches in Q2 2018. Robot Cache will let you buy games normally and you can resell games to get IRON. IRON is a cryptocurrency here that can be mined or earned by reselling games. 25% of the resale price comes back to the gamer selling the game. Publishers and developers will earn up to 95% on the sales of a game and 70% maximum on resale. The platform even reduces fees for publishers and developers by up to 80%. It uses blockchain technology. Lee Jacobson, CEO of Robot Cache commented:
“Just a handful of companies dominate the multi-billion dollar digital download PC video games market. Robot Cache plans to revolutionize the industry by launching the first-ever workable decentralized video game marketplace that benefits both the creators of video games and gamers. All of this is accomplished by expertly leveraging the power, flexibility, safety, and transparency of blockchain technology.”
Brian Fargo, the CEO of inXile Entertainment is a founder here and he has some thoughts on reselling:
“Earning any money on the video game resale market is unheard of for game publishers, and earning up to 70%, which is equivalent to the best margins publishers and developers currently receive on today’s most popular digital distributions platforms is crazy. Allowing creators to keep 95% of new game sales, and 70% on game resales, provides developers, like us at inXile, with a strong financial stream. This gives us more resources to create new content and new IPs for fans.”
