Asia Game Business Summit


Sudden Rise of the Game Market in Asia ― Exploring Its Full View

The game market all over the world is about to enter an era of significant change. Platforms (hardware) with which people can enjoy games have become so diverse. Not only the appearance of new household game hardware but also the increasing popularity of smartphones/tablets, down-to-earth PC on-line games and the new cloud games are contributing to this diversity. The use of platforms has become broader and games that are distributed through the network increased and as the result of this, the number of users playing those games increased beyond national borders. Especially, Asia is attracting attention as an area where increase of new users is prominent. There are 2 distinct areas within Asia. One is an area where game industry existed from some time ago and game machines for household use are already widely enjoyed by the people, like Japan, Korea and Taiwan. The other is an area where the market is rapidly expanding around smartphones and PC online, like Indonesia, Malaysia and Thailand. Game companies representing each area will get together to understand the present situation and problems of each other’s market and discuss what is necessary to take the next leap forward.
