Manufacturing and sale of game consoles in China no longer limited to free-trade zones.
But will it be region-locked?
They already stated it won't along with PS Vita. Look it up!
http://www.playstationlifes... http://www.gameranx.com/upd... this is all i could find and both mention sources, none of which have come directly from sony. so again i ask for proof, thanks. i am not suggesting it won't happen, just clarification.
Now we see the real reason PS4 was delayed.. MS will get better sales but to have these rules in place launch day?? Thats HUGE..
Just why would Xbox One have better sales in China than PS4?
Not than PS4, people just assume because its a comment on N4G I was comparing it to PS4 lol. I meant more in general. If Xbox launched with this sale rule available when xbox launched it would have sold a lot better. Sony is going to benefit a lot from this new sales rule. Be a gamer not a hater..
when was this supposed to launch? wasnt it like 3 weeks ago lol?
It doesn't matter if its just one or more consoles selling in china, its still going to be a tough sell with their restrictions and guide lines
I wonder if the workers at the factories who make the consoles get a little discount.
Everyone expecting a megaton of sales for either console needs to cool their jets a little. First, the average salary in China is less then $5000 a year, second, Sony themselves have stated that they are capping annual sales at 200,000 units. That's all they are allowed to sell. http://www.bloomberg.com/ne... Ms has been approved to sell 5 million consoles total in china. There may be over a billion people out there but only the top 10% would have the disposable income to buy a console, and even then, the government has capped the total amount of consoles to be sold
