This is happening all too often now.
This is sort of a trend at this point- at the last possible minute, it appears that the official Chinese launch of the PlayStation 4 has been delayed. If you will remember, this seems to echo what happened with the Xbox One last year a week before its launch, when it was inexplicably delayed, indefinitely, we were told, before an announcement just a week later that it was back on track to launch in the country.
As with the Xbox One, it appears that the issue with the launch of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation Vita in the country are issues with Chinese authorities that have still not been negotiated, according to Reuters.
Both consoles were originally due to launch in the country on January 11, but as of right now, we don’t have a new release date, and Sony has refused to give us one.
Gosh, you’d think these companies would get important issues like getting clearances from the government out of the way before they announced a launch for their products.
