Weekly Report (7.11-7.17)

GameLook Weekly Review

Tencent’s Legends of League had received 700,000 players online simultaneously last week, which would also enter into the Korean market soon. NBA2K online has opened its beta test. E-sports games in South Korea are controlled by Blizzard’s games, while Tencent is making its best to be the largest e-sports game company in China. E-sports games are the most popular and most profitable games in China, which is totally different from western markets.

It is expected that Thunder will be officially listed this week. Their first FPS game Final Combat is being tested and many people look forward to its success. Finally we see Thunder is throwing itself into game business actively.

Sina is going to launch the Wei Credit system in Q3. Sina had previously claimed to launch a gaming platform, which would be free for only one year and then it would turn into a commercial social network. Developers who wish to join in should speed up; otherwise they will miss the opportunity.

Tencent had launched another open gaming platform based on mobile browser last week. Tencent is becoming China’s largest mobile social gaming platform, which will result in a quite different mobile social gaming market from western countries.

Shanda Games had launched its light social/web game studio “UUGame” in a high-profile. Shanda had also claimed acquiring mobile game companies before. Tencent, Shanda , Perfect World and Changyou had all entered the strategic execution phase. Game giants have already started the war on social games, mobile games and web games.
