Asia Gaming News Website

Sharing today with you a resource for Asia gaming news and their website is really easy to remember too:

Asia gaming news website

As you have already known about me, I am a big gaming fan and my interest lies particularly in Asia. This is because I really believe that Asia, specifically Southeast Asia, is going to be the next frontier. Already research has shown that Asian gamers spend more for the in-game purchases than their counterparts from the States and Euro. Also, in terms of revenues, it is not Candy Crush or Clash of Clans that are making the most money, but mobiles games from Japan and China taking the top spots.

So it is really refreshing to have a website like ASN dedicating themselves to the gaming niche in the Asian region. They are, unfortunately, not updating as much as I would like them to be but still the best resource thus far. And coincidentally, they covered the same news about Manny Pacquiao and Eldee Tang invading the gaming scene.

If you are more of a social animal and prefer, like many people nowadays, to get your Asia gaming news from Facebook, you can find them there too!

Manny Teams with Eldee Tang of Gtoken

Starting my first musing with an incredible (although a little late) piece of gaming news from Asia, specifically Singapore: Boxing legend Manny Pacquiao has teamed up with Eldee Tang (shareholder) of Gtoken to enter into the gaming business.

This is Manny’s very first time investing in this industry. The founder of Gtoken, the company that Manny is investing in, is a big name entrepreneur called Ivan Lee. Ivan Lee is most famous in Singapore for having sold the Thai food chain restaurant for $100 million (to a Thai company).

This news is huge and should be a gigantic boast to the gaming industry in Singapore. Congrats to Eldee Tang and Gtoken! Read more about this deal here.
