PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita Heading to China on March 20

After being delayed earlier this year, Sony has finally announced a new release date for PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in China. According to the Japanese hardware giant, both systems are now slated for release on March 20th.

If no further delays occur, we can expect PlayStation 4 to be available for 2,899 RMB, while PS Vita for 1,299 RMB. Both systems will launch with a range of different titles. The selection of games being released don’t have much to offer but with time we’ll see more titles. That is if developers manage to go through the strict censorship laws of the country.

Microsoft has already released its Xbox One in the market, which hasn’t really been able to dominate the region. Only time will tell if Sony can make an impact with their PlayStation 4 console or not.
