BBC News - China lifts ban on foreign video games consoles

The Chinese government has temporarily lifted a ban on selling foreign video games consoles, paving the way for firms such as Sony, Nintendo and Microsoft to enter a lucrative market.China banned gaming consoles in 2000, citing their adverse effect on the mental health of young people.
A grey market in the sale of consoles has continued in the country.
But, partly as a result of the ban, PC gaming dominates - capturing two-thirds of the $13bn (8bn) market.
I wasn't aware that they had a console ban over there, now that is a BIG market!
