CyberAgent’s Virtual World Ameba Pigg Now Has 6 Million Members

No doubt, CyberAgent’s virtual world Ameba Pigg (Ameba Pico outside Japan) is a hit: the company today announced that Piggu now counts a whopping 6 million members in Japan.

CyberAgent also says it pulls in 600 million yen in revenue ($7.2 million) per month from Ameba Piggu – through sales of virtual items.

My prediction is that soon, Ameba Pigg will be more important for CyberAgent than Ameblo, the company’s mega-popular blogging platform (13 million users).

Ameba Pico, Pigg’s English version, is said to count around 3 million users outside Japan.
