You may have heard some rumors regarding “a source from the Ministry of Culture, who asked not to be named” that stated Chinese ministries were considering a lift on the ban against consoles, set in place in 2000. China Daily published an article on it, and China Digital Times reported on it as well. Unfortunately, that’s not the case.
Nanfang Daily contacted someone else in the Ministry of Culture, who stated that they were not considering lifting the ban. A contact at NBC Beijing said they had considered the news until receiving word that the rumor was false.
Sorry guys. But, don’t pretend like you can’t go down to Gulou and buy a console anyway, or play the Kinect games at the arcade.
