Sony Announces Release of PS4, PS Vita in China

Though there was something of a last-minute delay, Sony has confirmed its plans to release its latest systems into the Chinese market beginning on March 20th.  The company had originally planned to do so on January 11 but say some delays of what they described as “various factors” – among them including negotiations made with Chinese authorities.

China only recently lifted what was a decades-long ban on gaming consoles.  Back in 2000, the government blocked console sales citing concerns about the harm that they would have on the physical and mental development of children.

Microsoft released the Xbox One into the market last year, but Nintendo has made no announcements about regarding any plans.

Given the enormity of China’s gaming market, this is undoubtedly good news both for Sony and Microsoft.  The plan is to sell the PlayStation 4 at 2,899 RMD ($468) and the PlayStation Vita at 1,299 RMB ($210).  Sony has also lined 70 third-party developers and publishers to put a “steady stream” of titles into the market.

Sony is offering special bundles that come packaged with games like Dynasty Warriors 8, Rayman Legends, Knack, and Trials Fusion for the PS4.  The PS Vita bundles, meanwhile, will include Final Fantasy X/X-2 Remaster and One Tap Hero.
