Sony’s launch of the PlayStation 4 in China has the potential to be huge.
Why do I picture the Chinese government as mobsters?
Because maybe they are in a sense. Its not a communist government but a totalitarian in reality. If it was a true communist country, you would not a have the hundreds of billionaires and millionaires in China currently.
The Chinese government has made sister companies out of Microsoft and Sony
I honestly can't see Sony or Microsoft making a huge impact in China.
There's almost 1.4 billion reasons for you being wrong. Just gaze upon the size of that population, if consoles interest as little as 2% of all Chinese, that's already better than if everyone in Australia was a gamer.
Yes, because everyone in China has the "potential" ability to buy those consoles, uh, cool story bro... you know, just like everyone in a disaster ridden country also has the "potential" to buy expensive leisure goods,
India has about the same population as China, yet consoles still dont sell well there. China may be different, but a bigger population doesnt necessarily equal more sales.
Calm your horses, first even Sony has low expectations http://www.gamesindustry.bi... The reasoning is that the average salary for a worker in China is under $6k a year. They can hardly pay for living expenses let alone a luxury like a game console. Don't believe me look it up
I would laugh if they accept Vita more than the PS4.
Yet Sony and others do not mind that beauracracy to hide behind when cheap labour and bad human rights help to build it cheap.....
How is the x box doing in the land of the rising sun. Haven't heard news since the release.
Going to go on a hunch and say they have no choice but to play the game by china's rules . Lol @Peenatrick isn't the land of the rising sun Japan .
LOL....(this is peenatrick).......your right I realized this a few seconds after submission and I can't edit it. China is "the sleeping dragon."
The thing is anyone who wants a ps4 in China can already easily grab one. Online gaming, I'm not so sure about.
