Tencent's Mobile QQ Game Hall platform pulls in 13 million daily users, thanks to Weibo connection
Chinese internet service provider Tencent's Mobile QQ Game Hall attracts more than 13 million users daily, according to a report from Marbridge Consulting.

The platform, compatible with various formats, including Android, iOS, Windows Phone, Symbian and HTML5, manages to reach that figure, despite not having a significant number of titles on offer.

Re-Weiboed

The Tencent portal, connected to the Mobile QQ Game Hall, features the Chinese answer to Twitter, Weibo, which caters for over 250 million members - which could explain the large number of users.

Overall the app has surpassed the 200 million total user milestone, with a peak concurrent user figure capping at a million.

"Several dozen casual games are available through the app, with more being added regularly - primarily casual card and board games such as Dou Dizhu, Chinese chess, and Tetris," pointed out Marbridge Consulting.

"Tencent has also launched "social features" - interactivity with Tencent Microblog - for the Symbian and Android clients. Tencent said that it would offer open partnerships to all casual game developers interested in working with Mobile QQ Game Hall."
