No one knows YET what the message on the Chinese Gov's website means other than a welcome sign to foreign investors to come to China and set up shop....I.E. compete against Chinese Company's on their soil.

ATVI trades up cause many are speculating this means no more "ANTI  World of Warcraft" shananigans.

Which brings me to the main point of this article and why you should continue reading.....

Battle.net  is Blizzard's Online Platform for hosting online video games globally....Starcraft, Warcraft, Diablo.

Here's a what if....

Shanda Games (GAME) just announces a team-up with Kingsoft to help improve Kingsoft video games.....and host them.....and promote them....and so on....joint venture...

Why not an ATVI + CYOU joint venture?

CYOU has some interesting Martial Arts video games...themselves....the franchise seems popular..

Why not CYOU paying a small fee to ATVI for the privelidge of BLIZZARD hosting CYOU games on Battle.net?  + promotions + etc.

CYOU would want to pay a fee for the priveledge of access to the largest population of Chinese Video Gamers that WOW has......  WOW is #1 in China.... any way to reach out to the fan base with your titles on the very same online platform would be huge...

ATVI could use Battle.net  as a Joint Venture Money Machine.  In much the same fashion as the recently announced Shanda games + Kingsoft deal.

$11.40 a share for ATVI Today????   How much do you think the share price will be if BLIZZARD does enter into Joint Ventures with Chinese Online Game Competitors after they finish releasing their latest version of Battle.net?

Think about this way.... WHY WOULD China choose to stop being protectionist in the Video Game sector IF NOT to see some long-term benefit for Chinese companys?   And why would ATVI not at least consider joint venture methods with Chinese Game Companys to improve greatly some company's martial arts video game so that Battle.Net video gamers can enjoy it by the Millions and Millions of Subscribers?

The 2 company's could share royalties....or some other method to work out the joint venture....

The online video gamers in China are playing World of Warcraft..... I don't see what Chinese Game Company would pass up any kind of opportunity by ATVI...to turn a Chinese Made video game franchise into a money making enterprise?

Unfortunately NCTY didn't lose the 20% that it gained on news of China preventing foreign competition in the video game industry.
