Japanese electronics giant Sony will launch its PlayStation gaming console in China next week, it said after a more than two-month delay in officially selling its products to Chinese consumers. The company originally planned to launch PlayStation 4 consoles in China on Jan. 11, but abruptly announced a delay only three days beforehand, giving no reason for the change. Instead, it will start selling its flagship console, hand-held PlayStation Vita, and software on March 20, a statement on the PlayStation China microblog said Tuesday. Last year China authorized the domestic sale of gaming consoles through its first free trade zone in Shanghai, ending a ban imposed in 2000, although imports through unofficial channels have long been widely available. The country's leaders impose strict control over content.
