    Update: Sadly they have dismissed the development of Subor Z+ as of today, their investors simply are not optimistic towards Subor Z+ and decided to pull out.

  • Leptonaut
    Leptonaut 19 days ago

    It's very simple.
    The official position in China is "labor, labor, labor for party." End of story. You work, you work, you die.
    Now, everybody owns a phone and everybody games and watches movies and blows their lives on the usual 10-second dance and prank videos, but that's something that does not really sit well with the rulers here. But they can't really stop it. Smartphones are a vital part of modern society. Period. Consoles, however, can be banned as "distractions" and "anti-patriotism" and "anti-society." It's the entertainment-primary function that means they will always be skating on thin ice. Building and selling a game-primary platform is a fool's errand in China. Even if it is China-centric and really strives to adhere to the schizophrenic whims of the party. Anything that rivals the party for attention of the people will be erased.

    ANOTHER CHINESE PRODUCT THAT VIOLATED copyright infringements. China is NOTORIOUS for what is called reverse technology where they take the product (XBOX and PLAYSTATION in this case) and re-create it to market it as their own. This is A WAY OF LIFE THERE and they do this all the time all with the blessing of the People's Liberation Army and the Communist Party Government. China can NOT create anything on its own. It's always INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY VIOLATIONS. The trade war against China has one of U.S. demand is to stop this illegal activity.
