Also, the CEO of Shanda Games Tan Qunzhao says "All we client game companies need to know more about the new gamers brought by browser games, not only their gaming habit, but also the fun factors in browser games."
Of course, there were some other views in this discussion.
Li Ruijie, CEO of ZQ Games, says client games and browser games are not just a simple conflict. There is also a cooperate chance between them. Zou Tao, CEO of Kingsoft Season Game Studio even think with the development of hardware, the user experience of client games and browser games will become similar. It means their user groups will combine together in the future.
On the other hand, there is also some company doesn't positive about browser games. Ding Lei, CEO of NetEase thinks client games are still set to fully emerge in the future. Now it's just in the self-regulating phase. And the current browser games are still lack in quality.
