SCE has reportedly kicked off plans to launch the PS3 officially in China and has begun opening facilities in the city of Guangzho.
The console is not sold in China right now and can be bought only through export.
The China Daily reports that Sony has filed a letter of intent for opening R&D and training centres in the city.
These new centres are to focus on new game developments, localization of existing titles specially for the Chinese market.
SCE Asia is all set to support the new Chinese facilities by supplying equipment and experts, aswell as helping with the localization process of its games.
Sony representatives didn’t give any dates yet as to when the PS3 would get a official launch in the country.
Good move by Sony.
