Iwata doesn’t see any drastic change with China’s game console ban

NE: "A report surfaced from China Daily last month suggesting that China could finally be ending its 12-year ban on game consoles." (3DS, Industry, Nintendo, Satoru Iwata, Wii U)

I said this in another topic...

While a high standard of living exists in westernized cities like Hong Kong, the rest of China is dirt poor.

I heard that it is slowly getting better but the word is "slowly"-

So, population does not necessarily equate more sales.

Still, Hong Kong and other cities have huge populations... and that is more sales (anyway you look at it).

Iwata doesn’t see any drastic change with China’s game console ban.

Thats because all they have to do is make a knockoff version of every console out there and then sale it on the market for dirt cheap.

Basically, he doesnt see China opening its arms to videogames anytime soon...but if they do, Nintendo will be ready to get involved!
