GTA 5 PC version Gives Higher Expectation toward its Release in Korea
GTA (Grand Theft Auto) 5 is going to be released in Korea.
Korea is one of the countries with the best computer game players
and the highest frequency of game play in the world.
Its fastest internet speed and highly advanced
PC penetration rate support this environment.
The existing GTA supported Play Station and X-BOX,
but now the PC version is coming out.
The country that David Jones of Rockstar Games,
who created the most framework of GTA 1, visited after leaving the project is Korea.
With Korean game company WebZen, David Jones worked on ‘APB’ Project,
the online version of GTA.
GTA 5’s release was on top 1 or 2 of the real-time search word list of
Korean portal sites, Naver (the market share of Google is 5% and Naver 80% in Korea).
The launch of GTA 3, which is considered to be the best of the GTA series,
was prohibited in Korea due to violence and sex-related issues.
There is an analysis saying that
it lowered its violence/sex level to enter the Korean market.
After, GTA was parodied in SNL Korea and became a national game.
Soon-to-be released, GTA 5’s PC version.
We look forward to its sales in the Korean market.
