    Thirteen years ago, the concern of health harm has made the consoles be banned. But now, it's gone.

    Old news is old, but it's nice to have an official confirmation. Now the Chinese can play titles carefuly selected by China's censorship bureau... all 5 of them. ;O;

    Okay... now for the mandatory punny moment... "Ha! And you guys thought China doesn't even lift!" :yay:

    Thank you.

    Grey imports will still rule but I wouldn't be surprised to see companies releasing last gen consoles at double the price.

    So, a new market just opened up eh? Microsoft, Sony and Nintendo should really get on it now.

    No wonder China has some odd ideas. They were denied two of the greatest children's animation.

    Also because it does not seem to have the intro on it


    The other


    Anyway back on topic I hope Harsky is correct as it would be nice to have a continued supply of parts, controllers and such for them.

    I am glad they lifted that ban, but something tells me that they are just going to make up for it by banning all the games instead.

    If sale of consoles is banned, how are the iQue branded consoles legal?

    If what I've read is correct, the iQue is allowed because the games (programs) carry an 'educational' slant. This could be in addition to or in place of size, until I've heard nothing of the size personally.Many products and services (all over the world) are sold under the name of 'Edutainment' when it's other traits wouldn't allow or permit sales, I've been doing it for years; selling to schools and the services are pitched as 'educational' when they really purely entertainment.

    So Mario games will have to be censored? (the castles and hounted houses often house these skeleton koopa's). :P

    Super Mario 64 was released on Nintendo's iQue thingy, marketed in parts of China. Ocarina of Time was also released. You could look there for precedence cases, if any censorship took place.

    IIRC, xboxs pretty much suck at sales outside of the US. I understand you comment is just a probing question or hopefully a joke, but I really dont see the Chinese market really getting take with microsoft gaming stuffs.

    I retract my statement after reading what Chavo posted. Interesting.
