Kenneth Y T Lim, National Institute of Education, Singapore
Young Hoan Cho, National Institute of Education, Singapore
Michael Vallance, Future University, Hakodate, Japan


In this issue you will find perspectives from East Asia and Southeast Asia; the contrasts and comparisons are at once diverse and revealing - from David Herold's perspectives on games and gamers from China, to the work of Li and his team with a similar community from Singapore, encompassing several other cultures, sub-cultures and scales of resolution at points in-between.
