Acer is now the sole distributor of Sony PlayStation consoles and its physical games and accessories in the Philippines.
Acer Global Merchandise Philippines Inc. was recently named as the sole distributor partner in the Philippines by Sony Interactive Entertainment Singapore (SIES).
As the sole partner of SIES in the country, this gives AGM the rights to distribute PlayStation 5 and PlayStation 4 consoles, PlayStation accessories, and physical versions of PS games distributed by SIES, distributed to retail channels nationwide.
The partnership is expected to result in an improved distribution approach that focuses on channel and market management for SIES’ products.
“We at AGM are very honored to be in this partnership with Sony Interactive Entertainment Singapore and to distribute PlayStation and their products in the Philippines. The public can be assured that what AGM will bring to this partnership is the same level of excellence that Acer is known for,” said AGM Board Director Sue Ong Lim.
The Sony PlayStation 5 launched in the Philippines in December 2020. The console is one of the most popular in the world, with Sony having sold over 21 million PS5 consoles globally as of June 2022. In contrast, Microsoft’s Xbox Series sold only 13.8 million.
