    China's never been a big market for consoles for a few reasons :
    - Usually the TV is in the living room, and all the family watches it, so gaming is often restricted to the computer
    - Smuggling & Piracy are so huge that a launch is China is very risky - that is why Nintendo (and others) prefer to launch in Singapore, HK and Taiwan first.

    Altogether, China is very risky for console makers and as long as the Chinese government doesn't crack down on piracy, I don't think we'll see a lot of early Chinese launches...

    MK2, Sony and Nintendo products can be sold legally in China since very long.

    You must be referring to South Korea, which was forbidding Japanese cultural products (video games included). However this law was revised 3 years ago and now Sony and Nintendo products are legal in South Korea as well.

    So there are no commercial exchanges in two countries
    May I refer you to this article :
    http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn...2005Jan26.html
    Showing you that China is Japan's number one trade partner since 2004.

    Chinese & Japanese relations is a sensitive topic but I do not think it plays much of a role in the importance of China as a market for video game consoles.
    For proof, Microsoft (US Company) did not launch the 360 in China in 2005 or even 2006 but waited 2007, over a year later than other asian countries.
