Microtransactions will be the future of mobile gaming

Introduced to the mobile games market in 2006, microtransactions are the new trend in Korea that are predicted to become more popular as the business model has proven to be successful, generating increased revenue game after game. Roughly one third of games launched by SKT in 2007 have included microtransactions, and the number of games with the microtransaction feature is expected to grow in the near future. Currently, GAMEVIL, Nexon Mobile, and Com2us are leading the market trend with microtransaction featured games. Out of these publishers, GAMEVIL has the highest percentage of games with microtransactions. (Android, Industry, iPhone)

And thats exactly why I stopped playing games on mobile phones. If you need portable, we have PS Vita.

Hate microtransactions like anything.

Microtransaction in mobile games for Android OS isn't so bad since you can hack the .Apk file quite easily.

The last few microtransaction games I had on my TF101 tablet, I hacked and gave myself 9,999,999 cash shop currency.

I use GameCIH and GameGuardian btw.
