Our History in Interactive Entertainment
Over 15 years, PLAY INTERACTIVE has grown to become Southeast Asia’s largest distribution network for the “Interactive Entertainment” market.
Drawing from its core expertise in purveying genuine video games software in tandem with the generation of blu-ray gaming consoles, the company practices a continual evolution of its main business and modules to adapt to the concurrent demands of their B2B partners.
Founded in 2006, PLAY INTERACTIVE began with a small founding team in Penang Island, Malaysia. Over the years, the start-up picked up tremendous pace when genuine video games software became a mainstay for console gaming in the country.
The company soon expanded to the Malaysian capital of Kuala Lumpur in order to cater to the demands of a growing video gaming population as well as to accommodate a larger team by the early 2010s.
PLAY INTERACTIVE has always believed that interactive entertainment is a way forward in how people consume entertainment towards the future.
Video games aptly represent the notion of interactive entertainment for its ability to entertain consumers through interactive motion or controls.
For that reason, PLAY INTERACTIVE has been appointed as the sole distributor for Sony PlayStation in Malaysia, Indonesia and Singapore in 2014.
As a regional distributor, PLAY INTERACTIVE purveys numerous products under market- leading brands comprising software, hardware and licensed merchandise.
