No Kinect For China

July 13, 2010, By Christian Davis

So even though most, if not all consoles are made in China, they will not officially be able to get Microsoft’s Kinect. Well that doesn’t make much sense does it? According to their laws, it does.

In China, the country forbids the legal official sale of consoles. So the  new 360 Slim will not be available or Playstation Move will not get a launch there. PC gaming is still allowed and apparently the DS (and presumably the Wii) is allowed as well. Why is there a ban on consoles in China? There’s a ban on violent games, sexual games, games which glamorize gangs, and sexual gaming ads.

That’s most of the games available right there. Might as well ban the consoles.
