According to this Edge piece, the South Koren gaming market, while growing fast, may be facing a simple matter of physical limitation.

“One of the biggest issues for South Korea itself as a country is that there are limitations to the country’s growth,” said Pearl Research managing director Allison Luong.

“This is because so many people already own PCs and because of the country’s relatively small size. The concern for everybody in South Korea is that it’s at a saturation point.”

The country’s online gaming market will surpass $1.7 billion in revenue next year, up from $1 billion in 2006.
