    With the Chinese market officially opening up,and China's less-than-friendly attitude towards Japan,will Chinese sales be the deciding factor for next-gen consoles?

    Any estimates on grey market sales?

    I know that large parts of the population are still poor,but there must be a market somewhere between 50-200 million?

    Let's move this thread to general non-gaming and speculate on their military technology instead.

    They won't officially release the consoles in China I don't think and people generally won't buy it until it has been chipped. I have never seen an official XBox or PS game in the 6 years I have been here, even in Shanghai.

    Won't they just develop their own consoles? Seems like there would be a growing market for major Chinese developers to pop up.

    Normal PC gaming is very big due to its openness

    There will certainly an increasing market in China but I suspect most Chinese will just pirate PC games. They have virtually no-regard for intellectual property and the concept of paying anything between $20 - $80 for a new game is completely alien to them.
