Everyone knows that China presents a huge opportunity for mobile game developers looking to expand internationally - now we know how huge. A recent report from Newzoo predicts that China will pass the U.S. in mobile revenue by 2016. With this, China's well on its way to becoming the largest mobile market in the world.
According to Newzoo "this growth will be driven by an increase in smartphone users, and a rise in the number of paying gamers as the country becomes more affluent."
