MiHoYo, the developers of the online-multiplayer RPG Genshin Impact, has rewarded its staff with a bounty of sought-after consoles and tech as part of an annual employee meeting.
The rewards ranged from PS5s, Nintendo Switch consoles, the iPhone 12 Pro Max, and an RTX Graphics card, among other things, and were given out as part of a lottery/gacha system to celebrate Chinese New Year.
According to DualShockers, the photos of the electronics were originally shared on Chinese social media site Weibo, as well as a number of Japanese blogs. The photos were also shared by Daniel Ahmad (@ZhugeEX) on Twitter, who stated that: “This system is just for these one-off gifts, not for any other financial compensation/bonuses [staff] earn”

Another Twitter user replied to Daniel Ahmad’s tweet to point out that the company was giving out Japanese versions of the PS5, as according to Ahmad “the console isn't officially released in Mainland China.”
China-based studio miHoYo launched Genshin Impact in September 2020 on PS4, Nintendo Switch, PC, and mobile, where it quickly gained success and a dedicated fan base.
The free-to-play game grossed $100 million within just two weeks of its release and was recently crowned game of the year by both Google and Apple in late 2020. It did however just lose out to Animal Crossing: New Horizons as the most tweeted game of 2020, coming in 8th behind the likes of Final Fantasy and Fortnite, according to official Twitter statistics.
