5,201 views

Published on

I'd like to go through some of the basic differences of Asia VS European mobile games. Analysis about what is successful in which territory, what are the key success components, what type of genre with what type of features are dominating each of the markets, what would it take for a European successful mobile game to be successful in Asia and vice virca. Also, I would like to look into if flows of mobile content from one territory to the other is happening, will happen or what it would need to do for this to happen.

  22. 22. Key Take Away • “Asia” is not a market. Korea, China, Japan are markets. (and there are much more!) • Asia has big market numbers. This doesn’t mean it’s less competitive. (Actually the reverse) • It is possible for Western games to be successful in Asian markets: although it needs dedication per market and correct local approaches • There is no cross-Asian key player(publisher), hence there cannot be a cross-Asian partner, not yet. • More Western games will make it to Asia, but more Asian games will also come to the West
