Парадоксы распределения он-лайн игр.

Смотрю бумажки с игрушечной конференции. Наткнулся на интересное распределение платящих игроков по странам для он-лайни игры Tibia фирмы CipSoft GmbH

The main product of CipSoft is the MMORPG (Massive Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game) Tibia, one of the most successful online games in Europe and among the Top20 worldwide. Currently more than 300,000 international players inhabit the medieval world, acting as knights, paladins, sorcerers or druids. Tibia can be obtained and played completely free of charge. In addition, it is possible to buy a Premium Account which enables further game features and allows the player to travel to additional areas. The main market for Tibia is Brazil, the USA, Poland and Sweden.
Furthermore, CipSoft GmbH develops and runs Tibia Micro Edition, the first online role playing game for mobile phones. Inspired by the PC version of the game, TibiaME combines the features of an medieval online role playing game with the functionality of a mobile game. The game can be downloaded and played for free. In order to get additional game features, players need to buy a Premium Account. The main market for TibiaME is by far Brunei, followed by Russia and Poland.

Честно говоря, понятно только насчёт США. И совсем не понятно насчёт версии для мобильников.
