The Chinese version of Steam is presented, developed by Valve and Perfect World, specifically created for the most important gamer market.
Currently the most important gaming market in the world is China, where there is a true cyber cafe fever. This type of establishment is almost extinct in the rest of the world, but in the Asian country they are very popular. There are those who even live in them. That is why Valve and Perfect World have teamed up to bring Steam to China, more or less.
They have created the 'Zhengqi Pingtai' platform, which is what Steam will be called in China. The version is "practically independent of Steam". The reason for creating a different platform is the Asian giant's standards regarding blood, sex and violence. Initially, this store has less than fifty games and the catalog will be gradually expanded.
The light version of Steam arrives in China with a reduced catalog
“Steam China will be a much better experience for Chinese customers. Local servers, all localized content, so it is different, since it is only a service aimed at Chinese players, unlike now, where Chinese players are coming to Steam but you know, those who are accessing do so from outside of China, ”says a Valve representative.
“We want Chinese customers to have very high-quality access to Steam games, and that means that a set of games is approved through the appropriate channels and a local service. The servers that are there can have fast download times, and features that obviously improve your quality of life. "
In addition to complying with the legislation, the need to create this version of Steam is that the data must also be stored in China. This platform will only be available to Chinese users and will only contain information on users from the country. All efforts to obtain income from the most important country in the gamer market.
