This year, Western games are making decisive inroads into Korea. That's just one major takeaway from Gamasutra's recent visit to South Korea's G* event this year, where we got a close view of the differences between the Korean market and the rest of the world.
G* is South Korea's answer to E3 or the Tokyo Game Show, a largely consumer-facing event with its own mini-conference and B2B section for those looking to make deals. The show took place from November 26-29, including two weekdays that were somewhat more business oriented, and a weekend for consumers to gawk at the latest goods.
Gamasutra was on hand to get some sound bytes from notable developers, as well as a general lay of the land, and where the Korean and Western markets meet.
