After months of delays, Sony will begin selling its PlayStation game systems in China on March 20, the Japanese tech giant announced.
The PlayStation 4 will sell for 2,899 yuan ($463) and the handheld PlayStation Vita will be available for 1,299 yuan ($207). Sony had originally planned to begin selling the devices in China on Jan. 11, but reportedly delayed the rollout due to requests from the Chinese government.
Sony isn't exactly struggling to sell the PlayStation 4 in the rest of the world — the company last week announced it has sold more than 20.2 million PS4 consoles worldwide. Moreover, the PS4 reached that milestone faster than any other PlayStation console.
The PS4 is also the top-selling current-generation console, beating out Microsoft's Xbox One, which went on sale in China in September. Launching in China — the world's second largest economy — will, no doubt, give the PS4 an even bigger boost.
The move comes after China last year lifted a 14-year ban on video game consoles, allowing systems approved by the Ministry of Culture to flood the market. Microsoft wasted no time, becoming the first foreign console vendor to enter the country.
Meanwhile, the PS4 will launch alongside a handful of games, including Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, King of WuShu: Free Early Access Edition, Knack, Mr. Pumpkin's Adventure, Rayman Legends, and Trials Fusion. Available for the PS Vita will be: Dynasty Warriors 8 Xtreme Legends Complete Edition, Farming Simulator 14, Final Fantasy X and X-2 HD, One Tap Hero, Rayman Legends, and Toukiden: Kiwami.
