On the heels of Microsoft selling 100,000 Xbox One systems in China, Sony has confirmed, according to GamesIndustry International, that they are preparing to enter the Chinese Market. The Japanese console manufacturer intends to sell 200,000 consoles a year.
Financial publication Bloomberg found an agreement filed to the China Pilot Free Trade Zone website, which a Sony spokesperson was able to verify as authentic.
This might look like a bold move from Sony, but the document was filed in July, long before Microsoft had even released the system in China. The Sony spokesperson speaking to Bloomberg said that the number of units in the agreement is subject to demand and is not a static number. With relations between the two countries still pretty tense, it may even be that the system undersells in that market.
As there is no release date yet for the console, only time will tell how the system will do in this newly available market.
