Games are huge in China. Tencent, the biggest online games company in China just posted Q4 (to December 31) revenue of 2.2bn yuan. When I went to lunch the other day with my Chinese local colleagues I asked them why? They said, “There is no other choice for entertainment in China. TV is not good.” So of course the masses resort to playing games, especially social ones online with their friends or random people.

I talked with game start-up Founder and CEO, Clement Song of ECitySky. Started in 2007 and based in Beijing with about 40 people, ECitySky is building new technology that aims to change the way we play games.

Clement grew up in Beijing and moved to America when he was 15 years old for high school. He graduated from the University of Virginia in Computer Science. After graduating he worked in the Microsoft Research Team and later spent most of his time with the Xbox team.
