They just want in on the monies after seeing what GTAV managed to reap.

The country's infrastructure perplexes me to no end. I think it's the lack of the middle class though, since that's all I've ever known.

About time. But I'm guessing a lot of games won't make it through China's review policies anyway.

This is not really a ban lift though, it's simply to make consoles easier to access for international employees in this free zone. This is why sites like Facebook and Twitter are available in these areas too. Think of it like Hong Kong - The majority of mainland China folk wont really see any benefits. Still, a start at least.

China's too strict.

China banned video game consoles back in 2000 over concerns that video games might be detrimental to the physical and mental development of children.
I can understand games like GTA or Saint's Row or Call of Duty or maybe even Halo, but... otherwise... dafuq?

As Iran-US relations resume, I hope, gamers in China can start relations with the gamers in other nations.

It's funny because the ban was put in place long before any of these games had their chance to shine.

I hope so too. Would be cool to see some Chinese players getting in with the communities that exist.
