    Surprisingly, there's a gaming event taking place in 2020 that hasn't been cancelled yet. China's gaming trade show, ChinaJoy, is still on track to happen later this year, though there will be a few changes to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Attendees will be allowed in staggered waves, with booths to be spread out further than usual for social distancing. Other measures will also be put into place, such as attendees having to show ID to get into the building, and use of a health code tracking app to keep track of potential individuals that might have the virus. Last year, ChinaJoy saw over 360,000 attendees visit Shanghai to see new game reveals and experience game demos. This year, the show will take place from July 31st to August 3rd.

    Has much of interest (at least to those that don't run internet cafes or love them some payment after launch for shiny baubles) ever made it out of this show?

    Granted Tencent has made some big moves this last year or so, as have a few other big players there, and with nothing else being around I imagine some might give it a punt.

    "such as attendees having to show ID to get into the building"
    ...

    I also wonder what popular franchises in the west will be getting the mobile only/online only and only in China (maybe Korea) we will see.

    I don't know what to say.

    I want to type what I thought at first, but the things I was considering over.. they are all too rude to type.

    Doesn't China supposedly come 2nd place or something out of all countries on Earth in terms of average IQ score?

    That doesn't add up.

    Is there anything in the chinese gaming scene that's worth paying attention to, that isn't mobile? And ironically this is the only gaming event what wasn't cancelled.

    I'd like your post if it wasn't technically a distasteful jokeish thing.

    Though, it works I guess. Especially with that cool cool emoji.

    How China continues to do things like this, reopen the economy, and still have lower virus burden than the US is remarkable.

    I think the difference is masks and social distancing are already regular parts of Chinese life.

    Still I wonder if they are asking for a resurgence.

    People are saying their statistics are fake because they are a dictatorship.

    No dude... do you really think that social distancing is a thing in China?
    In the world's most populated country? Really?

    Probably they're faking their numbers.
    But who cares really? The damage has already been done. It's natural selection at this point.

    any prove about that?
    when a country is able to handle a pandemic, without overthrowing the healthcare system, you say it's fake, interesting. IF they faked the stastic means the vurus is still around, then that means the open public event like that will cause more people to get COVID-19, u really underestimate chinese's IQ, dude.

    Are you seriously believing the lies from Winnie the Pooh?

    There's already reports of the coronavirus deaths being exaggerated even here in the US.

    Video game consoles were actually mostly illegal in China until not too long ago.

    For all the downsides of a highly authoritarian police state, pandemic management is definitely not one of them. They already had the people and technology in place to track and control the population as well as a population that was more willing to accept extremely draconian measures than perhaps any other. That goes a long way in combating any disease that can plausibly be stopped. I'm guessing you're right about the masks as well.

    The stats are basically guaranteed to be massively under-reported, but not necessarily maliciously. Getting accurate numbers can be trying in the best of times and all the more so during an epidemic. I'm willing to believe that they've managed to stamp out the virus domestically. Believe me, I'm more than happy to call China out on their bullshit, but only when I'm confident that it IS bullshit. If you attack them too strongly with questionable information and it turns out to have been wrong, then people will be less inclined to believe you when you confront them with solid facts. There's no need to alienate potential allies when there is nothing of value to be won from doing so.
