Global News Galore

Global News Galore

MMORPG.com's Ricahrd Aihoshi goes beyond the local Western Market to bring us up to speed with some of the news happening globally in the MMO realm.

When seen from a North American perspective, the global MMOG space is kind of like an iceberg in that the visible portion is substantially less than the whole. A major reason for this is we aren't presented with much news unless it's directly pertinent to this region. It's certainly understandable that publications tend to focus on the games, the kinds of information and the types of articles likely to draw more readers within their target audiences, which are pretty geographical in nature. To be fair, it's not completely their fault - it's not difficult to find companies that emphasize these same areas.

One thing this means is that there's a lot more going on around the world than meets the eye, especially for those of us whose interests go beyond the games themselves to include development, international markets and the factors that shape and drive them both. Last time out, I honed in on Nexon, which has been particularly prominent of late, so it seemed fitting to follow up by looking at some recent news involving other companies.
