Since Gameprix’s Divine Soul started OBT 26th of August in Thailand, they need to add more servers because CCU is increasing quite rapidly. Now they have 2 servers for the game and ready to add one more near future.
Divine Soul is the first game for SBT, the newest publisher in Thailand, and they got more than 100,000 registered users with the game alone. The game is easily adapted to gamers in Thailand because it has console-like actions, PvP mode like Street Fighter from Capcom.

If you were thinking about publishing Special Force in Taiwan or Thailand, sorry it’s taken. Dragonfly, a developer company of famous FPS Special Force, renewed its licensing agreements with current partners; True Digital Entertainment (TDE) for Thailand and Wayi International Digital Entertainment for Taiwan.
TDE has been publishing Special Force since 2006 as attracting more than 18,000,000 users (50,000 CCUs) and making 19 billion Won (or US$14.6 million) from the game last year. (No wonder Dragonfly extended the contract.) The arrangement will let TDE enjoy the success 5 more years.
As for Wayi, they only got 2 more years out of the contract renewal. Wayi has been publishing the game since 2007 and reached 5,000,000 users and 20,000 CCUs. The company made 3.7 billion Won (or US$2.5 million) from the game in 1H09.
