Pre-owned console games store GameXS, owned by Gurgaon-based Krieda Solutions Pvt Ltd. has raised an undisclosed amount in seed funding from Mumbai-based Lead Angels.

“The typical Indian gamer is passionate and reads a lot about games and the gaming industry world over, but is not able to play most of them because of high prices.
