Forums - Gaming Discussion - PS4 Is Restricted To Having 6 Games In China, Banned Games Are Confiscated Along With Console And Fined

This... this is why I don't live in China



Bet reminder: I bet with Tboned51 that Splatoon won't reach the 1 million shipped mark by the end of 2015. I win if he loses and I lose if I lost.

Well, most people in China who play PS4 just import the games from Japan/Hongkong anyways.



We knew the part about 6 games, and the part about them confiscating is kinda non-news at this point. We know it's illegal, but it's impossible to enforce, at least on a noticeable scale. It's like pirating. No one gets caught.

Whats the point of unbanning consoles if your just gonna suffacate it to death.


To be fair it is a step in the right direction.  Over time I am sure they will allow gaming like we have here - it will just happen incrementally over time like it always has in China.  Fast change simply scares  them (More than it should).



Prediction for console Lifetime sales:

Wii:100-120 million, PS3:80-110 million, 360:70-100 million

[Prediction Made 11/5/2009]

3DS: 65m, PSV: 22m, Wii U: 18-22m, PS4: 80-120m, X1: 35-55m

I gauruntee the PS5 comes out after only 5-6 years after the launch of the PS4.

Been living in China for a while. There are tons of shops in every city with unofficial consoles from Kong Kong. They even have the newest games available for reasonable prices (lower than the official ones). Anyone who wants a ps4 in China can have and play whatever he wants.

But, yeah, these restrictions are disappointing.

And still, ever since the beginning of the 7th gen; people have harbored the illusion that China and India would provide explosive consoles sales based on their huge population.



That Chinese government are a bunch of pansies. I'm sure people will get these and other future banned games from the black market. Unless I'm missing something and the console is region locked, right?

Nintendo's situation in China would be soooo much better. The market is ripe and absolutely perfect for it. I could see lots of consoles being sold there if they were to put it on the market. Nintendo needs to get on this while they can!

Just wait til it happens to see Smash Bros. being banned.


It could happen, but I think games like MK8 don't have a chance of being banned unless they have something against kart racers. Also SSB is so kid friendly I could see it getting a pass.

It was at this moment they knew they fvcked up.
