OverviewNBG EDV was founded in Rückersdorf (Germany) by Ingrid Herrmann and Detlef Erhardt in 1988.
In 1997, Activision acquired Take Us! Marketing & Consulting GmbH and NBG EDV. NBG EDV was set up as a Kommanditgesellschaft (KG) and Take Us!, under it's new name Activision Deutschland GmbH, became their complementary company.
While Activision Deutschland GmbH acted as publisher, NBG EDV is Activision's German distributor, responsible for Austria, Germany and Switzerland. But distribution was not limited to Activision games. They distribute games from many different publishers, for example the Microsoft gaming product catalog since 1999.
With the Activision Blizzard merger in 2008, Vivendi Universal Games Deutschland GmbH replaced Activision Deutschland GmbH under the new name Activision Blizzard Deutschland GmbH. With this step, they switched from distributor to publisher. As a result of this, the catalog of former Vivendi is now also distributed by NBG EDV.
As of 2009, NBG EDV exclusively distributes games and gaming related equipment from the following companies:
- Activision Blizzard (including Activision, Blizzard, LucasArts and former Vivendi Games)
- RTL Enterprises
- Trend Verlag
