Sony’s consoles are finally hitting the Chinese market next year, with the PS4 and the PS Vita arriving on the 11th January.
According to a report on Engadget, the PS4 will cost ¥2899 yuan (about £300) and the Vita will cost ¥1299 (about £135). Earlier this year, Xbox One launched in the region for ¥3699 (about £380), without the Kinect sensor, in September.
Consoles had been banned in China for 14 years up until the release of the Xbox One in September. Sony now plans to provide Chinese gamers with “quality, healthy games that are suitable to China’s national conditions and the preferences of domestic players… as according to the relevant government policies.”
70 third-party companies will be providing content to the region, with well-known Western developers such as Ubisoft, EA, Take-Two, Disney and Bethesda on board to help out.
The new consoles will be decorated with a stylish looking dragon motif.
