To Shakespeare, the question is “to be or not to be”.  To game developers in China, the questions is “to copy or not to copy”…

Yesterday, I was at an event at Lee Kai Fu’s Innovation Works in Beijing.  It is a round table discussion about games (social,  mobile and tablet ).  Beijing based ECitySky, which makes a very cool 3D social game, organised it.  And many industry veterans are there, including AJ Redmer,CEO of WeMade (U.S.), Andy Tian, general manager of  Zynga China, Edwin Chen of Ismole and Richard Wu of Wistone.
