Share this article:

MySpace is tapping the popularity of video games in Asia with a new contest that allows Asian developers to help build out MySpace's gaming platform.

In the contest, dubbed “TheGame08,” MySpace is inviting developers in China, Japan, Korea and India to create a new gaming application for the recently launched MySpace Developer Platform.

To enter, contestants can submit their gaming applications through http://developer.myspace.com/ (for India, Japan and Korean entries) and http://developer.myspace.cn/ (for China entries).

The contest launched on July 17 and is running until September 14.

The winning gaming application will be announced on October 9 at this year's Tokyo Game Show and will be translated into Chinese, Japanese, Korean and English.
