Phase I: Collecting background data from secondary documentary sources

In the first six months of the project, we will search, acquire, and analyze existing research reports, statistics, laws, regulations and court cases, trade journals, websites, and other secondary data to obtain an overall impression of the game industries in HK and other countries. We will focus on three key data areas: 1) accounts of cultural policies, legal framework, and regulations of game industries in other countries, 2) institutional analyses of major game developers, publishers, and distributors in HK and Asia, and 3) surveys on Chinese and Asian gamers and game products. These general data will provide the basis for carrying out subsequent phases of data collection. The RAs will begin to locate interviewers and sites for participant observation in HK and China respectively. (the first 6 months)
