In some exciting news for the video game industry, Sony formally announced the China Hero Project today which aims to support Chinese video game developers. With video game consoles now widely available in China for the first time, the expectation is that over the next several years/decades, China will become a center of video game development.

This is quite simply, excellent. Game development is growing all over the world and without question, China will be a large part of that growth in the 21st century. It’s fantastic to see companies like Sony officially supporting new development teams and indie projects in that regard. We certainly hope other companies do the same.
