PC Gaming Alliance Welcomes Eight New Members

The PC Gaming Alliance (PCGA) has announced eight new members.

BFG Technologies, Bigfoot Networks, Flextronics, GameStop, GameTap, Gas Powered Games, Howie’s Game Shack and InstantAction have joined the non-profit consortium, which was formed last year to promote the PC gaming industry.

“We welcome these new members to the PCGA, a rapidly growing organisation where companies of all types can come together to expand and improve the PC gaming ecosystem,” said Randy Stude, PCGA president and director of Intel’s Gaming Program Office.

Gas Powered Games CEO Chris Taylor said that by joining the alliance he hoped to “keep PC gaming at the forefront of the industry, help it to overcome its challenges, and continue to fulfil its amazing potential.”

GameTap president Thibaut de Robien said: “We are confident that the PC platform offers the gaming industry the greatest opportunity to leverage the flexibility of the internet and its open architecture, allowing many players of the industry to innovate and create.”

While the PC Gaming Alliance has lost a few members this year, including Activision Blizzard, its members include Epic Games, Capcom, Microsoft, Sony, Intel, NVIDIA and Hewlett Packard, among others.
