Just getting a console sold in China is a win.

TC - hey mister drop-a-link, good to see you're back on form. After yesterday, I thought some ill fortune had come your way as we didn't see you and your usual work. Glad to see you're okay.

I think it is obvious it would have to be region locked in order to get approved to be sold there, so that isn't a surprise. That and the grey market/hacked consoles are why China isn't going to have a major impact on the "console race" as far as the rest of the world goes.

The console ban lifting is a big win for China overall though.

It's a win for Chinese GAMERS that's for sure.

The other winners are developers who now have wider audience to tap.

Damn $600? That's going to badly hurt sales, hopefully some Chinese reverse-engineers the Xbox one hardware and makes clone Xbox-one systems like what happened with the PS2.

The fact that China doesn't give a damn about copyright law is one of the few things that China does right, but the censorship laws such as banning video game consoles doesn't really make sense. Chinese citizens end up pirating the content that's censored anyway whether be movies, books, video games etc.

If the ban was fully lifted prices for video games would go down much faster.
