I wonder, if China ever goes to full on capitalism (they love the benefits of Hong Kong after all, which is the one area of capitalism in the country), what the gaming industry will be like there. No more stolen IP and technology being made by shady companies only getting away with it because China doesn't care about the rest of the world's IP. No more limited hours and money spent on gaming. Just capitalistic freedom. I'd be really curious what the numbers would be like then.
Then again, I'd probably be more focused on celebrating the freedom those people would finally have rather than looking at gaming numbers lol.
