According to a report by market researcher Niko Partners, China’s mobile game players will hit 192 million by the end of this year, surpassing the number of PC players in China, which is expected to reach 180 million by year-end.

Another point raised in the report is that mobile game revenue is likely to grow six times  from last year’s $600 million to billion dollars in the next five years.

VentureBeat cited Lisa Cosmas Hanson, the managing partner of Niko Partners saying that “Niko projects fast growth in mobile games revenue in China led by the rising adoption of 3G usage, soaring sales of smartphones from a wide array of vendors, and the desire to play entertaining, inexpensive games on these smart mobile devices”.
