My.Games decides to get into the digital PC games storefront business

My.Games, the company that publishes titles such as Warface, Revelation Online, and Conqueror’s Blade, has decided to join in on the digital games store thing that its heard so much about. As part of the company’s move to go global, players can expect a My.Games Store to go live in the fourth quarter.

The new game store is effectively an international version of the company’s current Games.Mail.ru, which currently has 13 million monthly active users. The storefront will naturally house the publisher’s selection of titles, but will also offer up third-party games, providing a 70/30 revenue split for publishers and developers who distribute their games on the store. The My.Games Store will also integrate with Lootdog, a service that lets players securely trade in-game items for real money, and Donation Alerts, a tool that helps streamers monetize their content.

“Although our background is delivering free-to-play and premium titles to an Eastern European audience, the My.Games Store is the next step in bringing our expertise to a global market,” says My.Games CEO Vasiliy Maguryan in a statement. “We believe we can offer a wealth of support and knowledge to studios and publishers looking to reach both a Russian and a global audience.”

The My.Games Store is currently in beta testing and is expected to fully come online by the end of the year.

Same thing I think of them as the Epic game store. They bring nothing new to the table for us gamers. Just be ready for games to be only executives to this store.

I don’t know about you but the Epic game store has brought me a lot of good free games.

Meaning just a no new option just a trading one DRM store for another DRM store.

Yeah, no. Their launcher never passes my malware or virus protection. The old “just disable it” doesn’t work for me when the address is anything.ru.

Never again my.com Like you said Ash…. my accnt was easily hacked into. What a pain. I never went back after they shut down cloud pirates… then immediately after my accnt was hacked. Seemed super shady.

Yes I’m getting fairly sick of Developers telling me to disable my virus protection or what have you to install their stuff. I don’t even like it when they tell me to whitelist their installers and files. People *have* had real viruses that came through with official updates before. I don’t feel safe just whitelisting them completely. Can’t they submit their files to all the major virus scanners and get them automatically cleared and whitelisted through the system?

I will do it sometimes if I really want to play something bad and it simply won’t work without doing it but I’ve got to the point where I’m uninstalling stuff rather than bending over backwards to get it to work with my virus scanner.
