If you happen to be one of the hordes of Apple fans residing in Korea (South, definitely), then here is some good news to perk you up mid-week. It seems that the Government there have lifted a ban that prevents Apple from including games in the country’s App Store – just in time for the iPhone 4S release in that part of the world. Basically, if you’re an iPhone user in Korea, you can now purchase games that had remained blocked for nearly a couple of years, and this rule was in place simply because the country’s Game Ratings Board were concerned about the content of games.
I guess with the reversal of this block, game developers will now salivate at the chance to take a stab at the game mad nation of Korea. After all, with the iPhone 4S being prepared for action this coming November 11th, we are quite sure that the uplifting of this ban had something to do with that.
