The country's online game industry generated 32.37 billion yuan ($4.92 billion) in sales revenue in 2010, of which 59.6 percent came from the country's own products.

The statistics were released in a report during an ongoing annual conference of China's online game industry, running from January 18 to 21.

A total of 356 products were developed independently by China's domestic companies in 2010, 35 more than the previous year, the report said.

Meanwhile, China's 82 original online game products developed by 34 domestic com-panies were available in 40 foreign countries and regions last year, with sales revenue reaching $230 million, up 111 percent year on year, according to the report.

This was the fifth year for China's original online game products to remain domi-nant in this industry, said Sun Shoushan, deputy director of the General Administration of Press and Publication, when addressing the annual conference Wednesday.
