    Nexon is a:
    Korean video game developer and publisher of online games and MMORPGs. Its headquarters is located in Seoul, South Korea.

    NEXON Corp. published its first title, Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds, in 1996. Known as Baramue Nara in Korea, Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds is the world's first graphic MMORPG. In 1998 NEXON released Dark Ages: Online Roleplaying which was loosely based on the Korean game Legend of Darkness, using the same server technology. The North American version of Dark Ages was developed by David Ethan Kennerly.

    NEXON Corp. also released a few unsuccessful games to the North American audience in beta form which have since been dropped. They include Elemental Saga, QuizQuiz, KartRider and Elancia. QuizQuiz never left beta stage in North America but was later released through the Japanese division of NEXON, NEXON Japan, in a Japanese version. QuizQuiz has since evolved into the exclusively Korean and Japanese. Online game Q-Play, while Elemental Saga was eventually cancelled. NEXON has eight games exclusively available to Korean players such as Elancia, and Crazy Arcade. In 2001, NEXON Inc. released Shattered Galaxy, published through TriSynergy. Though it had previously won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2001 Independent Games Festival, hosted through the Game Developers Conference, the game floundered when it was released to retail. It was subsequently maintained exclusively through KRU Interactive. Shattered Galaxy itself was a heavily localised and customised version of its Korean parent game, Tactical Commanders.

    In 2003, Wizet created a hugely successful game called MapleStory, which eventually had clients in South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Southeast Asia, North America, Europe, Brazil, Vietnam and players from many other places. NEXON then merged with Wizet and jointly controlled MapleStory. More than 95 million people are playing MapleStory today.

    It has produced several online video games, primarily MMORPGs and online action games. Most games have used a 2D perspective, including side-scrolling, top-down, and isometric perspectives. Newer 3D titles are currently being published. Although most games are available for free, various gameplay enhancements can be purchased.

    NEXON is one of the pioneers of the Free to Play model using Virtual Asset Sales to generate revenue. Of a reported $230M in revenue for 2005, 85% was said to be from the sale of virtual items.[1]
    [edit] Partnership with Nintendo

    NEXON announced that they have made a partnership with Nintendo,[2] though they will continue games for the computer as well. Together, they developed MapleStory DS for Nintendo's handheld console, Nintendo DS. MapleStory DS was released on April 15, 2010 in Korea, 3 months later than the original date: January 2010.
    [edit] Partnership with Valve

    In July 27, 2007, NEXON and Valve made a partnership and announced Counter-Strike Online, a new online version of the world's most popular first person shooting multiplayer game that will be tailored for Asia. Under the terms of the agreement between two studios, NEXON developed and became the exclusive publisher for Counter-Strike Online in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and China. After the release of Counter-Strike Online, Nexon released numerous updates for their own FPS game called "Combat Arms".
    [edit] Acquisition of NDOORS

    It was announced by Nexon on May 4, 2010, that they had acquired NDOORS.[citation needed] The amount that Nexon paid for 67% of Ndoors' equity was undisclosed, but is speculated to be close to 200 billion Won (US$ 153.9 million dollars), which was the original 'wish-price' from Ndoors.

    From this acquisition, Nexon will take over IPs of Goonzu Online, Atlantica Online, Corum Online, two upcoming MMORPG titles, as well as publishing rights of Perfect World's Battle of the Immortals in Korea.
    [edit] Acquisition of GameHi

    On May 27, 2010 Nexon acquired bought a controlling stake in GameHi for US$59.8 million. Nexon bought 29.3 percent of the company's shares as well as management rights for control of GameHi from Gun-Il Kim, the largest shareholder in GameHi.[3]
    [edit] Investment in BoomBang Games

    The announcement was made in October 2010 that Nexon has invested in Spanish game developer BoomBang Games by purchasing 32 percent of the developer's stake. With the help of Nexon, BoomBang Games can now expand their first game developed, BoomBang, into many other countries around the world via Nexon’s giant oversees network and publishing partners servicing over 70 countries in every corner of the world.[4]

    Nexon Japan will lead the investment as they look to expand their social game portfolio.

    The Virtual currency is known as NX through Nexon America and Nexon Cash elsewhere. The NEXON Cash system was one of the first systems to use the Virtual Asset Sales(VAS) model. The NEXON Cash system was first introduced in the Korean service of Crazy Arcade. The NEXON Cash system allows users to purchase NX with real money. The NX can be used to obtain virtual game items that other users normally wouldn't have. Players can use this virtual cash to buy items for their characters in games that support a "Cash Shop." The NEXON Cash system has appeared in other games to generate additional funds for their company and keep their games free to play.

    On January 11, 2007, NEXON America announced the release of NEXON Prepaid Cards. The prepaid cards contain amounts of 10,000 ($10 USD) or 25,000 ($25 USD) NX currency that can be redeemed for NX Cash. As of October 2010, NEXON Game Cards are available at the following retailers:[5]

On May 31, 2007, NEXON Europe officially released MapleStory Europe and opened the cash shop.

    [edit] NEXON Korea

    NEXON Korea is Korea's largest online gaming company/portal by revenue. NEXON Korea started with Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds in their lineup. NEXON Korea received a large influx of users migrating to the Korean version because of the Tespia Test Server and their more up-to-date patching. To combat this, NEXON Korea now requires a Korean resident registration number to register. Even with a Korean resident registration number (KSSN), a number of OBTG (old existing forum) members of that forum were still able to get into NEXON's games.

    [edit] NEXON Europe
    NEXON Europe Logo

    NEXON Europe first opened on April 9, 2007, when NEXON Europe released the Open Beta of MapleStory Europe. On May 31, 2007, NEXON Europe officially released MapleStory Europe and opened the cash shop. The release also marked the official grand opening of MapleStory Europe and the game will be removed from its beta stages. The addition of Combat Arms to the NEXON Europe game line was announced by NEXON America on August 8, 2008. On the 25 September 2008, NEXON Europe launched the Combat Arms Europe Teaser Website. On 28 October 2008, NEXON Europe started the Combat Arms Europe Closed Beta testing phase, which finished on the 11th November 2008. Combat Arms Europe Open Beta testing began on 16 December 2008 and finished on January 15, 2009. NEXON Europe also opened the brand new NEXON Europe Portal Website on 16 December 2008. Combat Arms was fully launched by NEXON Europe in January 2009, servicing Europe and the Middle East. Mabinogi Europe was released in Q1 2010, the official release started players off in Generation 3, instead of Generation 1. The Uncharted Lands update was added in September 2010, and took Mabinogi Europe to Generation 11, including all Generations before. NEXON Europe has announced that Vindictus (Mabinogi Heroes), is due to be released at Q4 2010.
    [edit] NEXON Japan

    NEXON Japan is the most successful and recognized online gaming company/portal in Japan. It started in 2004 with the release of MapleStory. Since then, NEXON Japan has shown tremendous growth, with their revenue increasing 56% from Q4 2008 to Q4 2009. NEXON Japan currently services many extremely successful games including Arad Senki, Atlantica Online, Counter-Strike Online, MapleStory and Mabinogi.
    [edit] NEXON Korea

    NEXON Korea is Korea's largest online gaming company/portal by revenue. NEXON Korea started with Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds in their lineup. NEXON Korea received a large influx of users migrating to the Korean version because of the Tespia Test Server and their more up-to-date patching. To combat this, NEXON Korea now requires a Korean resident registration number to register. Even with a Korean resident registration number (KSSN), a number of OBTG (old existing forum) members of that forum were still able to get into NEXON's games.

    Nexon is a free version Treyarch.
    sure they listen to the community, but they rip ideas, huds and physics from other games.
    The graphics are alright, but not the best.
    Laggy servers
    Good zombies game type
    many QQing faggots in game, and many modders + hackers.

    get it? im basically saying that Combat Arms is like a free Black Ops.
    it basically is. Black Ops is alright, but it sucks dog shit compared to Mw2.
    the currency system is a waste of time, most of the guns are already in Combat Arms actually ahah, the strongest sniper in Black Ops is actually the L96A1, there's a mini-gun and the list goes on and on.

    i'll be back to moderating tomorrow, my ban will be up and you guys will see me more.

    Korean video game developer and publisher of online games and MMORPGs. Its headquarters is located in Seoul, South Korea.

    NEXON Corp. published its first title, Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds, in 1996. Known as Baramue Nara in Korea, Nexus: The Kingdom of the Winds is the world's first graphic MMORPG. In 1998 NEXON released Dark Ages: Online Roleplaying which was loosely based on the Korean game Legend of Darkness, using the same server technology. The North American version of Dark Ages was developed by David Ethan Kennerly.

    NEXON Corp. also released a few unsuccessful games to the North American audience in beta form which have since been dropped. They include Elemental Saga, QuizQuiz, KartRider and Elancia. QuizQuiz never left beta stage in North America but was later released through the Japanese division of NEXON, NEXON Japan, in a Japanese version. QuizQuiz has since evolved into the exclusively Korean and Japanese. Online game Q-Play, while Elemental Saga was eventually cancelled. NEXON has eight games exclusively available to Korean players such as Elancia, and Crazy Arcade. In 2001, NEXON Inc. released Shattered Galaxy, published through TriSynergy. Though it had previously won the Seumas McNally Grand Prize at the 2001 Independent Games Festival, hosted through the Game Developers Conference, the game floundered when it was released to retail. It was subsequently maintained exclusively through KRU Interactive. Shattered Galaxy itself was a heavily localised and customised version of its Korean parent game, Tactical Commanders.

    In 2003, Wizet created a hugely successful game called MapleStory, which eventually had clients in South Korea, Japan, China, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Thailand, Southeast Asia, North America, Europe, Brazil, Vietnam and players from many other places. NEXON then merged with Wizet and jointly controlled MapleStory. More than 95 million people are playing MapleStory today.

    It has produced several online video games, primarily MMORPGs and online action games. Most games have used a 2D perspective, including side-scrolling, top-down, and isometric perspectives. Newer 3D titles are currently being published. Although most games are available for free, various gameplay enhancements can be purchased.

    NEXON is one of the pioneers of the Free to Play model using Virtual Asset Sales to generate revenue. Of a reported $230M in revenue for 2005, 85% was said to be from the sale of virtual items.[1]
    [edit] Partnership with Nintendo

    NEXON announced that they have made a partnership with Nintendo,[2] though they will continue games for the computer as well. Together, they developed MapleStory DS for Nintendo's handheld console, Nintendo DS. MapleStory DS was released on April 15, 2010 in Korea, 3 months later than the original date: January 2010.
    [edit] Partnership with Valve

    In July 27, 2007, NEXON and Valve made a partnership and announced Counter-Strike Online, a new online version of the world's most popular first person shooting multiplayer game that will be tailored for Asia. Under the terms of the agreement between two studios, NEXON developed and became the exclusive publisher for Counter-Strike Online in South Korea, Japan, Taiwan, and China. After the release of Counter-Strike Online, Nexon released numerous updates for their own FPS game called "Combat Arms".
    [edit] Acquisition of NDOORS

    It was announced by Nexon on May 4, 2010, that they had acquired NDOORS.[citation needed] The amount that Nexon paid for 67% of Ndoors' equity was undisclosed, but is speculated to be close to 200 billion Won (US$ 153.9 million dollars), which was the original 'wish-price' from Ndoors.

    From this acquisition, Nexon will take over IPs of Goonzu Online, Atlantica Online, Corum Online, two upcoming MMORPG titles, as well as publishing rights of Perfect World's Battle of the Immortals in Korea.
    [edit] Acquisition of GameHi

    On May 27, 2010 Nexon acquired bought a controlling stake in GameHi for US$59.8 million. Nexon bought 29.3 percent of the company's shares as well as management rights for control of GameHi from Gun-Il Kim, the largest shareholder in GameHi.[3]
    [edit] Investment in BoomBang Games

    The announcement was made in October 2010 that Nexon has invested in Spanish game developer BoomBang Games by purchasing 32 percent of the developer's stake. With the help of Nexon, BoomBang Games can now expand their first game developed, BoomBang, into many other countries around the world via Nexon’s giant oversees network and publishing partners servicing over 70 countries in every corner of the world.[4]

    Nexon Japan will lead the investment as they look to expand their social game portfolio.

    The Virtual currency is known as NX through Nexon America and Nexon Cash elsewhere. The NEXON Cash system was one of the first systems to use the Virtual Asset Sales(VAS) model. The NEXON Cash system was first introduced in the Korean service of Crazy Arcade. The NEXON Cash system allows users to purchase NX with real money. The NX can be used to obtain virtual game items that other users normally wouldn't have. Players can use this virtual cash to buy items for their characters in games that support a "Cash Shop." The NEXON Cash system has appeared in other games to generate additional funds for their company and keep their games free to play.

    On January 11, 2007, NEXON America announced the release of NEXON Prepaid Cards. The prepaid cards contain amounts of 10,000 ($10 USD) or 25,000 ($25 USD) NX currency that can be redeemed for NX Cash. As of October 2010, NEXON Game Cards are available at the following retailers:[5]
