Asian MMOGs & Micro-Transaction

     Some of the earliest MMOGs are believed to be originated in Asian countries: China, Japan, Korea, and Taiwan. However, it is not until recent years that Asian MMOGs developers started to penetrate the U.S. market. According to some of the developers, the Asian markets are extremely saturated with low profit margin. These are countries are also the pioneers in Micro-Transaction business model.

     Micro-Transaction and Free to Play models actually started in Asian between late 90's and early 2000, on the other hand U.S. actually just started these business models not long ago. It is the main reason why so many Asian developers would like to have a taste of U.S. market; these Asian developers believe that they are seeing a growing market in U.S. which is like the one in Asia from 5 years ago.

     However, the U.S.  audiences see micro-transaction in a different point of view. The acceptance toward micro-tranaction business among gamers are extreme and divided. I have seen people whom totally support the the business model, yet I have seen people totally look down at the such practice. I am not speaking for neither side; however, I do love to see how people think of it. This is the first entry of my blog, and I will write more detailed entries about this topic in the near future.
