The Majority Of Chinese Gamers Now Pay For Online Gaming Content Every Month

There’s a reason free-to-play games are all the rage around the globe. Games like Sony Online Entertainment’s DC Universe Online, Nexon’s MapleStory and NCsoft’s Guild Wars are reaping rewards via micro-transactions. China, which has been plagued by piracy, ushered in the free-to-play business model as a method for game publishers to reach a large audience of gamers and sustain a business that keeps players purchasing new content to advance their interactive experiences.

I wouldn't be surprise if we saw a heap of P2W F2P within the next few months.

Too bad for the best fps there is atm...

The market for games like this is too over saturated to make a dent in other established games' player counts. Trying to start all over with a whole new multiplayer meta and grinding to get better is not feasible when there's already a ton of similar games that have come out before it.


New Game of Thrones Video Game In Development

Gravemaster writes: "Game of Thrones and A Song of Ice and Fire is a successful franchise, but it hasn’t had much luck when it comes to video games. Many were released, but only the one from Telltale games received more or less recognition and it was cancelled after one season anyway. Now, we have news of another Game of Thrones game in development."

The first 3 or 4 seasons were brilliantly written, then the writers ran out of steam.

Netmarble is one of the biggest mobile developers, if that's not enough indication

There's a trailer in the article with the Netmarble brand attached to it. Netmarble is a well known mobile gaming studio.

Wow those graphics are incredible

Maybe that's what Larian is working on? Or even better, an isometric Witcher CRPG like BG3, a man can dream.

Nice, I don’t know anything about these titles. But hoping they’ll be worth the watch.

Xbox Partner Preview.
Xbox games that will be released on partner consoles including the Nintendo Switch and the PlayStation 5.

Asplundh104d ago

That should be pretty obvious, but then again there are some people who end up believing these are exclusive.

Sounds familiar doesn't it? Xbox has never been creative or innovative

FinalFantasyFanatic103d ago

I normally just watch these so that I can add anything that interests me to my Steam wishlist.

Watch out for The First Berserker: Khazan. It looks really cool. It was first shown in TGA 2023.
Pretty cool as well that we'll get know more about Capcom's new IP Kunitsu-Gami: Path of the Goddess.

phoenixwing104d ago

I'll be watching for pc games

anast104d ago

I wonder which games they are going to announce for the PS5 and Android.

Lightning77103d ago

Seeing how it's a partner preview which I means 3rd party. It's safe to assume all be on PS.

RaidenBlack103d ago

they do ... many State of Play(s) are 3rd party focused

jznrpg103d ago

The 3 games listed are multiplats.
I actually looked up the Tales of Kanzera:Zau a month or so ago because I thought it could be an actual Tales of game but I was very disappointed to find out it is an indie game being published by EA and not an actual Tales of game. Gameplay looks ok but I don’t like the art style. It looks a lot like the recent Prince of Persia game.

FinalFantasyFanatic103d ago

I think we're overdue for a new Tales game, I know Tales of Arise isn't that old, but it feels like it's been forever.
