Our partnership with GungHo is very productive, and it’s opening up lots of amazing new opportunities for your games including a bigger presence in the world’s fastest growing gaming markets.
First off, Playphone is reaching new gamers in Southeast Asia like no one has ever done before. According to NewZoo, Southeast Asia is the fastest growing gaming region in the world with over 125M gamers – of which, 48% are spending over $1.1 Billion annually.
New Playphone stores are now live in Singapore and Indonesia, and new stores are coming soon to India and Taiwan. Playphone’s game stores are uniquely positioned to succeed in these exploding markets because of our strategic partnerships with local distributors and alternate payment providers, enabling easier access to games and preferred payment methods.
It’s an exciting time for PlayPhone. GungHo Online Entertainment recently purchased a majority stake in our company, and I wanted to take the opportunity to share what good news this is for you, our game developer partners.
Hey Game Devs,
PlayPhone’s newest game store – branded PlayZone — is coming to the Middle East! We’re only telling a select group of developers about the store before the official announcement so we can feature your game for the launch. You’ll reach over 200 million smartphone owners in over 12 countries and over 1 billion gamers worldwide. The Middle East region has one of the highest number of smartphone users and socially engaged gamers in the world.
We are excited to announce that we have released a brand new refresh to PlayPhone’s Developer Portal. A new experience that looks great, and makes it really easy to publish your games globally through carrier game stores on PlayPhone’s Mobile Gaming Platform.
Today we’re thrilled to announce PlayPhone’s support for HTML5 games across all Android devices, which include our very popular operator direct-billing capabilities for purchasing premium games and in-app purchases. Not only does this represent one of the largest single boosts in gaming exposure for HTML5 developers, Android gamers now have a level of access and discoverability that was previously impossible.
As PlayPhone continues to add carrier partners, we found that it was difficult to keep track of all of the different operator agreements. We are excited to announce today that we have simplified this process, and below are some of the updates.
