You may not be aware of this, but China currently has a console ban that has been in place since 2000. The reasons why are a tightly kept secret, but obviously China doesn’t want it’s young citizens to waste their lives in front of a TV screen and have fun like the rest of us. However, now six years after the worldwide release of the PlayStation 3, the console might make it into China.
Sony has received a safety mark for the PS3 which is needed to sell products in China. This does not necessarily mean China will get the PS3 tomorrow, or even this year, but the day is coming.
Awhile back Sony managed to release the PS2 in China by stating it was a computer. If all goes well, maybe the Chinese can get the latest Sony system soon.
