Book: Mobile Gaming in Asia: Politics, Culture and Emerging Technologies

Mobile Gaming in Asia: Politics, Culture and Emerging Technologies
by Dal Yong Jin, Simon Fraser University
Springer, 2016

This book provides holistic approaches to the field of mobile gaming, includes a comprehensive analysis of mobile gaming in the context of Asian smartphones, and develops a local perspective using translated papers published in national languages.

This book analyzes mobile gaming in the Asian context and looks into a hitherto neglected focus of inquiry – a localized mobile landscape, with particular reference to young Asians’ engagement with mobile gaming. This edition focuses not only on the remarkable success of local mobile games, but also on the significance of social milieu in the development of Asian mobile technologies and gaming culture. It examines the growth of the current mobile technologies and mobilegaming not as separate but as continuous developments in tandem with the digital economy. It is of interest to both academics and a broader readership from the business, government, and information technology sectors.
