GREE Establishes Advisory Board To Combat Real-Money Trading [Social Games]

GREE is introducing yet another measure against real-money trading of virtual items from its platform – following a task force, a set of automated tools, payment caps and a council with members from Japan’s top social gaming companies (see herehere, and here).

The main driver here is the danger of getting regulated by the Japanese government in the near future (as I mentioned earlier, there is a high probability this will happen rather sooner than later).

GREE today announced it established an advisory board to add external expertise to its efforts to make GREE a safe destination for social game users and combat real-money trading.

There are a total of ten members in GREE’s advisory board, mainly professors, researchers, and IT journalists and analysts.

GREE says the advisory board’s first meeting will take place as early as this month.
