[North America] Chinese Influx

I had a chance to meet with online game publishers and other game-related companies in Northern California yesterday at a nice gathering organized by F2P Forum. And it seems like it’s not just Korean companies in here anymore. I can probably name 16 or so Korean publishers who have actually physical presence in North America- majority of them are based in California.

Now Chinese companies are catching up; Perfect World (Chi: 完美世界) is doing great with its 3 games (or at least they told me so) and IGG still Got Games. THQ*ICE just began Dragonica Online OBT. Besides them, Tencent has offices on the East and the West coast and ChangYou (?游: Chi) is working on its first game in North America.

It’d be interesting to see how these numbers will change. By the way let me know if I missed out someone.
