Thanks to GameSpot for their news article revealing Sony's PlayStation 2 will launch in China this December. According to the piece: "...the console will be sold in 10 official stores in four cities: Beijing, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Shenzhen. CellStar, one of China's biggest mobile-phone companies, will be in charge of distributing the PS2, which will sell for around 1,400 to 1,500 yuan ($169 to $181), and will come bundled with three as-yet-unnamed games." Nintendo are launching the N64-based iQue in China before Christmas for around $60, making for potentially interesting sales comparisons.
