Bukalapak Cooperates with Itemku to Expand Access to Video Games throughout Indonesia
Previously, Bukalapak had just announced a collaboration with Itemku. Through this collaboration, the two companies want to make video games more accessible to everyone in Indonesia.
This collaboration is also inseparable from the increased activity of playing games during the pandemic. This then also affects the increase in the game industry in the last year.
IDC analysts expect there will be a 20 percent increase in global video game revenue in 2020, to a value of $179.7 billion. Additionally, the NPD study found the amount of money spent playing games increased by 76 percent in 2020.
Based on these data and results, Bukalapak also considers the need for video games to be increasingly important. Therefore, together with Itemku, Bukalapak wants to bring a closer video game experience.
“I hope that with our shared strength, we can help catalyze the need for digital gaming in Indonesia, and make video games more accessible to people throughout Indonesia,” said Bukalapak COO Willix Halim in an official statement, Tuesday (11/5/2021).
