According to some sources that have been translated by Kotaku, it appears as if Sony’s PlayStation 4 and PS Vita consoles will not be region-locked in China when they launch in the country next month. 

At the same time, Microsoft’s Xbox One system is still region-locked in the country, even though it launched back in September. Currently, there is no word if this will change when Sony releases its products, so Xbox One fans will just have to wait and see. 

Both the PS4 and the PS Vita will be launching in China on January 11, 2015. The PS4 is set to cost 2,899 RMB (about $468 USD), while the PS Vita will be 1,299 RMB (about $209 USD). What do you think of the systems not being region-locked?
