The Korean Ministry of Culture, Sports, and Tourism and Microsoft Korea teamed up together to build a Global Game Hub in Bundang (less than an hour away from Seoul city center) in Korea. The budget allocated to the project by 2012 is about 85B Won (apprx. US$ 65 M). They set their initial goals as 1) support 300 developer tenants, 2) educate 2,000 game professionals, 3) reach US$ 250M revenue in overseas.
MS plays a role in the project by providing developers a development tool for free.
