Although it should very much be considered just a rumor for the time being, numerous Chinese gaming and tech media are reporting that Sony may be working on bringing the PlayStation 4 to China.
Get it over there
smart move! now china can join the fun...must be some kinda hell with no games allowed all these years. what do they do over there???????????????? play, i dunno clue? monopoly? Ma-Jung....DEAR GOD, yatsee!?!? get them a ps4 stat!
This is just a rumor... but this would be massive to Sony. Whoever controls china will win this gen Console war IMO, truly an untapped market
this^^^ china is the most populated country in the world. win half...just 50% of them over and its a done deal. china hates the japanese tho...they low key hate america too so its up in the air.
they play mmos mostly, like wow and tera
They play a lot of PC games. Same thing in Korea.
@Kingthrash360 yeah but only 450m of those people are considered middle class or higher and have enough money to actually buy a PS4.
They steal too much over there to be so cut and dry.
PS4 over there so world domination can begin!
China is huge but I think PS4 adoption would take a long time. I know the Chinese like their games but from what I know it's mainly MMO PC games. Add to the fact that relations between China and Japan aren't the best, I'm sure the Chinese would be wary about jumping straight on Japanese hardware. But good on Sony for attempting it if it goes ahead.
I was thinking the same but US-China history isn't exactly rosy either and I think the Chinese government would have something to say about Kinect and its potential for US spying on Chinese citizens.
lol chinese government would be the one watching!
If that was the case we would be in big trouble since much of our production happens in China.
You guys are morons lol. China uses plenty of Japanese products. Every developed country uses products made elsewhere...These are not the times of the first world war. There still may be some bitterness between the US, Japan, and China...but not enough to where either country would totally boycott a product because of "nationalism". I could totally see China welcoming Sony and the PS4. It would be more strategic than offering the US(China's main opposition) any sort of gains on their continent.
They play mainly MMOs there because thats all they have there lol.
Chinese japanese relations have been rough. Maybe electronics could bridge the gap or it could end up how the xbox is in japan :/
I wouldn't because of the piracy concerns with out always online.
I doubt this has huge implications in China. One because it is a console and that's rocky and also it is a Japanese company that is bringing it over there. Don't downplay that in the slightest I've lived in China for a year because of school and they aren't fond of Japanese products.
They'll just buy one, reverse engineer it, copy it and sell it for 100 bucks.
Whoever controls China... controls the world.
I am calling it now China is going to be Nintendo centric....with Sony right behind them...MS in my opinion has no chance over there. The Chineses government is very strict on violent content. Nintendo has the best shot since almost all their IP's are family friendly.Sony is mixed, so they can get some sales over there if they release the right content.MS doesnt really have many non violent IP's so it would be a huge struggle for them.
