AliveGameZone - Hong Kong, be ready to face the launch of PlayStation 4… Soon!
That is a big market to release in. Good luck Sony.
When did China started to allow consoles? i thought there were some kind of ban.
Back in September they lifted it. http://kotaku.com/china-lif...
Last I heard, the ban was being lifted. Anyways, won't matter. China is PC land, they love their MMO's, MOBAS, and things of the sort. If MS and Sony want to compete there, they better get ready to make some deals to get some of those online PC games on consoles.
Well.. funny enough there will be some good MMO's goin to the consoles, and ps4 for example is getting FFXIV here in a few months. that might help.
What 'Draken' said is true. There are MMOs and other online games coming to PS4. Also one of the reasons why PC dominated China was because of that console ban.
Hong Kong is a specialized market zone in China and works under it's own jurisdiction. There are several western "trade-zones" in the new big China and they all work very similar to our European or North American busy cities. They are much more like you than you think :)
Wow no more ban in china this is huge for consoles! We could be talking 10s of millions more console sales.
Interesting to see what happens. China has the potential to have the biggest gaming market of all in the world only rivaled by India I would think.
They could very well be, but both china and india are poorer than say, European countries or the USA. Not sure a lot of people can buy these consoles, but hey im no expert in world economics.
HK always sell consoles whether there be a ban or not. HK is China's little money pocket like Macau. There are no restrictions there. Many of the consoles from the Asian market originates in HK.
... and in other news, Sony sells 10 million PS4s in 24 hours.
