China officially ended their 15 year video game console ban only yesterday. China originally began the ban in 2000 when fears arose about consoles having physical and mental negative affects on development of children. This left people playing with PCs, mobile devices, and web-based video games. The only possible way to receive or sell said consoles, was through the black market. With the console ban lifted, PCs just got three new competitors in the Chinese market.
