Japanese media reported that a man surnamed Chiang, a Chinese national, currently living in Tokyo, was recently arrested by police for manufacturing and selling game save files from the Monster Hunter: World for PS4 and Monster Hunter: Rise for PS4 versions. Nintendo Switch. It is known that this is not the first time that Chiang has been arrested, but it seems that he is still used to his old ways.
In early July this year, Chiang was arrested for selling modified Breath of the Wild game save data files, which enhanced the attributes and abilities of the game’s characters, thus helping customers easily obtain rare items. This violated Japan’s Unfair Competition Prevention Law.
However, just 20 days after his release, Chiang continued his crime, this time the target was Monster Hunter. According to the police, this time Tuong provided the service of editing save files of 3-player games and charged 3,500 to 4,500 Japanese yen (about 730,000 to 940,000 VND) in service fees.
However, Tuong didn’t know how to hack or edit the data of these popular games, so he went to a Chinese intermediary website and spent 500 Japanese yen (about 105,000 VND) to hire someone to do it for him. As for Chiang, he just needs to find customers, sit back and enjoy the difference. The police further revealed that in a year and a half, this Chinese man earned 10 million Japanese yen (nearly 2.1 billion VND) from the above-mentioned illegal work. Because he has a criminal record, this time Tuong will likely have to face a greater penalty for his actions.
