    PlayStation 3 may finally launch in China

    Sony has gained approval to launch the PlayStation 3 in China, a country where games consoles are technically illegal.

    Authorities granted the PS3 a "China Compulsory Certificate" in July, Techinasia reports, although the machine has yet to formally materialise. Sony first launched the PlayStation 3 in Japan nearly six years ago.

    China implemented its console ban in 2000 to protect the nation's youth - and in doing so created a grey-market for games consoles and arguably encouraged piracy.

    Consoles can be sold if labelled as home entertainment devices, which, with its Blu-ray player and various online services, the PlayStation 3 is anyway.

    I'm shocked no one is talking about this. This has potential to be VERY huge for Sony.

    Or not. The Chinese are just as proud of their products like Japan is. Depending on the success of the Playstation 3 over there, they might even create their own entertainment console to overshadow the competition.

    Idk. I just see it as feeding the need of a real console after 12 years. People won't have to settle for below lol

    Toyota have sold alot of cars in china so they don´t totally ignore japanese products there. 2011 china stood for about 13% of toyotas sales so IF sony can get the ps3 in to china it has a good chance to sell pretty well.

    They won't buy it, most Chinese are anti Japan for products and whatnot, seems like a waste for any of the big 3 to do business in China.

    I am sure the kids in China do not give a rats ass where the PS3 comes from. Games are games and I am sure it will sell just fine. I certainly do not think about what the hell country my console came from lol.

    Chinas not like that though, they pretty much only want their own products, not to mention they hate Japan.

    The PS3 is already the most popular console when you factor in the world as a whole so this will be huge for Sony.

    China is thirsty for greatness. It's coming.

    Yea but sony won't give a **** since they are making money on each console.

    I heard that they can't bootleg the games at the moment because there is no way of downgrading the latest firmware. Forgive me if I'm wrong on this subject because I don't follow the custom firmware scene closely.

    Yeah that's what I was thinking, they'll get the latest models with the latest firmware.

    How so? It's quite odd how China has approved it being a console AND Japanese, wouldve thought the 360 wouldve been approved if anything.

    PlayStation 3 may finally launch in China

    What I find most odd wasn't there a china only console being released that was 800 bucks? Or something like that? I'm going to search for that story

    EDIT: here's the story it was from a year ago and was supposed to be released in 2012...and the price was 470 us dollars
