Abstract: In recent years, advances in networking technologies, computer graphic and CPU power have enabled the rapid development of Distributed Virtual Environments (DVEs). In essence, large-scale DVEs refer to a class of applications that enable thousands of geographically distributed users to simultaneously interact with each other in the same synthetic, computer-generated 3D virtual world. Prominent applications of DVEs include online games, military simulations, collaborative designs, virtual shopping mall, etc. Especially, the latest study by the market research company IDC ( on the online gaming market of Asia/Pacific (excluding Japan) revealed that the subscription revenue is about US1.09 billion dollars in 2004, an increase at about 30 percent compared to 2003. Also according to this study, this market will be more than double in 2009.
