For Those Unaware, China Had A 13-Year Ban On Video Game Consoles, And Is Lifting It

Wait until this little trooper gets his hands on an Xbox! 

For real: video game consoles like Xbox, Playstation, and Wii have not been for sale in China since 2000, but players have been obtaining them through “unofficial channels.” But they’re now coming back, with no date set yet for the official return.

Needless to say, this probably puts manufacturers and software developers over the moon, as they now have another 20% or so of the world’s population to sell to, and that 20% is experiencing huge economic growth and has a history of falling in love with technology.

No word yet on whether or not China will be allowing the importation of the controversial (and boring) Oppressive Government II: Beijing Nights. Keep your fingers crossed.
