In 2006, when Perfect World was preparing to go IPO in Nasdaq, there was not a single industry precedent case for Perfect World to follow on how to account PC-game revenue. After rounds of investigation and modeling, Ms. Zeng, working with auditors and other experts, has finally thrashed out a set of revenue recognition rules, which is still adopted by many domestic game companies nowadays.
