Video Game Development in Argentina
Latin America is big. From Mexico to Argentina, it is formed by several countries with very different cultures, dialects and governments, and social differences within regions can be vast. It is a developing region, which means that many people still do not have access to essential things like water or food, and education is inconsistent. The percentage of people that have access to a computer with Internet is very low; and fewer still have access to a game console. Old game consoles like the Sega Master or Genesis systems, or the Nintendo Entertainment System were still very popular only a few years ago, so much so that some Brazilian companies were still making games for those consoles. Piracy is also very high in the region because it is difficult to find original games at an accessible price.
