This is my personal & professional blog.  It's a place for me to think out loud and learn. I'll sometimes talk about things I don't understand as a way to begin to understand them. I'll often be wrong, short sighted, and unclear. When you see this happening, please point it out!

Gaming big in China

An individual I had the pleasure of meeting today made the argument that Gaming will be huge in China because the Chinese people have very few media alternatives.  TV and movies are censored.  As are the internet and print.

I buy it!

What a different world censorship makes!

Also, gaming consoles allegedly haven’t taken root in China because of the upfront costs of such devices.  Therefore, the prevailing gaming platform in China will be the web.  The “pay to play on our servers” business model has no upfront costs (enabling broader adoption) and can generate 100’s of millions/billions in revenue!  Woohoo!
