Will take over the console market? If the PS4 and XB1 really do end up being really successful in china, i've no doubt that game devs will start making games catering to them, rather than to the US, I imagine it would really hurt the experience that we get.

Or a new market this large could lead to new types of games that could still be fun. Growing the industry rather than replacing it will be a good thing.

I, for one, would really welcome some new IPs of any genre based on Chinese mythology and/or history.

Like Brazil ? Big population, growing country, high piracy.

If you took the time to read China's restrictions on what games are allowed, you wouldn't even worry about it.

Besides, people say piracy on PC is bad (it's really no where near as bad as fanboys make it out to be), you should look at the stuff they sell on the black market pertaining to video games.

The latest EEAD (or whatever) panel stated that only 9.7% of all of China's gamers (57 million and beyond) actually paid for games/content.

I would be more afraid if Microsoft outsells to China because they arent doing so well.

I think he means sells out to China.

Personally, I don't trust the Chinese and I believe piracy rates will raise substantially once consoles truly roll in.

Almost every console MMO will need a drastic economic restructuring in any event.

Would the PS4 even sell well in china with Sony being a Japanese company ?
