Sony has launched an app for PlayStation 5 in China, giving players in this country the opportunity to get one without paying twice as much as its selling price. According to CNBC, Sony has already started pre-contracting for the contract, which will be sold in the Chinese market on May 15. The disco model will reimburse 3,899 CNY ($ 603) buyers, while the PS5’s single digital will cost 3,099 CNY ($ 479). Both prices are slightly higher than in the US, but fans in this country had no choice but to buy comfort from the gray market at higher prices before this happened.
Game Giant re-released the PS5 in November 2020 and sold 7.8 million euros, according to the latest findings report. However, China’s long-standing approvals and testing procedures prevent manufacturers from producing their products locally on their international release date. Instead, Microsoft has not announced when the Xbox Series X and Series S will be available in China despite receiving approval for its devices to be released in the country by the end of 2020.
It remains to be seen if things will change for the future. As CNBC notes, the official release of sports betting has been possible since 2014, after the country lifted 14-year ban on foreign production. So far, the PS5 has become very popular in China, making it the best market for gray and retailers that export equipment from Hong Kong and Japan.
The way the PS5 performs against the Nintendo switchch in the world – the most popular console so far in China – takes a number of factors, including the availability of the game. The country has strict laws banning it, which prohibits manufacturers from releasing their games to Chinese fans. Sony has confirmed at least three games on the market so far, which Young man, Ratchet and Clank and Genshin’s results, which is a popular theme and Chinese manufacturer. The Titan game is also working with local company Ultizero Games on a PS5 game called He Lost His Life Alone.
