Not surprised seeing all this news about Chinese couples ignoring their babies. Not all of them.

i guess china is the future for almost every industry.
i wonder if china will make their own PS4/X720/Wii2

as Japan's gaming industry is falling and US gaming industry is coming down from its peak, china is on the rise.

maybe they will switch to console gaming.

"maybe they will switch to console gaming"
That's not going to happen anytime soon.

For one, the piracy issue. For two, PC gaming is more popular in China than the console.

It's much easier to have access to the pirate pc software, movies/dvds, music, then the console games.

u are right.

but the article is talking about the 180m gamers who spend money on a monthly basis and its not talking about the gamers who pirate content for free.

so if the 180m cash spending chinese gamers are really out there, im just saying hopefully they will switch to console gaming.

Why switch to console gaming.

Thats a huge move for the consumers and a market shift.

If theres a huge pc market then have devs shift to PC market. Make F2P/freemium based AAA games, warface for eg. MMO's etc and also have normal AAA games for them.

Gamers prolly wont shift anyways, one of the things that makes them hooked to pc games is accessibility and multi tasking when playing online games on PC. If devs can improve on that and sell it, ppl will eat it up.

Well why do you the latest World of Warcraft expansion have pandas in it? A whole race of blood thirsty polka dot bears with Asian theme for their entire culture.

Western market : werewolves, vampires, lizard-like dragons and medieval knights in shining armour and giant swords.

Asian market : pandas,kung fu pandas,bamboo plants everywhere,serpentine dragons,pandas, pagodas and even more pandas.

Blizzard already has huge success with Starcraft 1 and 2 in the Korean market so it's natural for them to tap into another Asian market.
