According to the estimation of HKDEA, there are about 108 companies with game as major business in Hong Kong. The game industry has a higher revenue and profit than other digital entertainment industries. The main reason is the industry has successfully transformed from the development of computer game to online game, and then to mobile phone game. Payment platforms of online game and mobile game are less affected by online piracy. Hong Kong is the major market of the game industry followed by Taiwan. It is considered that the local market can be further developed if there is a third-party payment system as in Taiwan and Japan instead of currently just relying on the credit card payment. As for the Mainland market, the industry find the complicated Mainland’s laws and restrictions hinder their development there. Out of the 35 companies responded in the survey, 16 (45.7%) are neutral in their outlook for future development whereas the numbers of being optimistic and pessimistic are 13 (37.1%) and 6 (17.1%) respectively.
