Sony has delayed the Chinese launch of the PS4 only days before it was due to go on sale.


The company is citing “various factors” but Reuters is suggesting that ongoing negotiations with the Chinese authorities are at the root of the problem.

Sony is currently applying for licenses to release 30 games in China, a region that imposes strict rules and censorship on media and entertainment.

Both the PS4 and PS Vita were due to go on sale On January 11, priced CNY 2,999 ($487), and CNY 1,299 ($210), respectively.

Sony has not issued a new release date for the console.
