MMOs for the People!

"The development represented an increase of 18.4 percent over the same period last year in a market that still has a vast potential for further growth, the China Daily reported on July 22. The burgeoning online gaming market proved especially lucrative, with Internet gamers spending some four billion yuan (483 million dollars) on virtual equipment for their online alter-egos in the first six months."
