Overview edit · view history

Based in Melbourne, Australia, and established in about 1995, Metro Games was the game distribution and publishing division of the PlayCorp Pty, Ltd., a large supplier of sporting and gift products in Australia.

Sister companies of Metro Games were unrelated to the gaming industry and included Kidz Biz Toys, Prostar Sporting Goods, NCL Photo Albums, Giftrapt Gifts and The Great Southern Pie Company.

It appears Metro Games may have discontinued operating in about 2001.
