PS4 To Arrive In China In January 2015, Vita Will Accompany It

By   /   Dec 12, 2014

To give some competition to Microsoft’s Xbox One, PlayStation 4 is finally hitting the Chinese market on January 11, 2015. The console won’t debut alone, as Sony’s handheld, PlayStation Vita will also be released in China at the same time.

The Japanese hardware giant has priced the system at 2,899 RMB or US $469. While Vita is coming in at 1,299 RMB or US $210. It was previously reported that Sony will start packaging consoles sometime this month and will initially ship 200,000 PS4 systems.

Sony is planning to give a plethora of games to its consumers in China as the company is going to partner with more than 70 third party devs to bring their content to PS4 and Vita.

26 of these devs are based in China, 21 in Asia while 25 are from EU and North America including Take-Two, Warner Bros. Entertainment, CD Projekt SA, Square Enix and Spike Chunsoft.

Another big name on the list is Ubisoft, who will be releasing titles such as Trials Fusion and Rayman Legends. While Ubisoft has revealed Chinese release date for two of their PS4 titles, other companies are yet to show what they have in store for the region.

On this occasion Sony’s Andrew House stated:

“We are delighted that we are able to fully launch our business in China, which is a market with great potential. We look forward to delivering exciting software, convenient services, and entertainment experiences only possible on PlayStation to the many gamers in China.”

After a long ban on consoles in China, gamers in the region will surely be excited to see both Microsoft and Sony battle it out for their attention.
