On the PC specifically, two issues are video game piracy and high system necessities. Free-to-play games are notably prevalent in international locations similar to South Korea and the People’s Republic of China. Microtransaction-based mostly free-to-play mobile video games and browser games similar to Puzzle & Dragons, Kantai Collection and The Idolmaster Cinderella Girls even have giant player populations in Japan. In particular, the Nikkei Shimbun reported that Cinderella Girls earns over 1 billion yen in income monthly from microtransactions. Electronic Arts first adopted the free-to-play idea in one of its video games when it launched FIFA Online in Korea.
