PlayStation Store Suspended in Mainland China

14 posts in this topic

So apparently there was some "back door" issues with the Chinese PSNStore (but no other regions?), and Mainland China's storefront has been suspended, with no timeframe for reinstatement.

I will have to go on my China account to see if my download list still works, but this will definitely prove an issue for those of us who like to stack games, or wanted some of the exclusive-China games.

Daniel Ahmad tweeted that an Xbox fanboy reported a vulnerability:

Whether they were reporting an actual problem or just screwing with Sony, who knows. Ahmad intentionally called the person a fanboy...

China requires many things when it came to opening the video game market and one of those things was absolute control over what is accessible to users. Someone claimed that a user in the China PS Store could switch to a non-China store and unapproved obtain things through the store. Sony is likely be taken to task and asked to prove it’s not possible before China allows them to reopen.

Ahem... “temporarily” suspended, it seems.

 

Does the word "suspend" not imply a temporary state any more?

Right. English isn’t my first language, I thought “suspended” meant definitely forever gone.

 

I’m not surprised that this happened though, its China.

Yes, suspended usually means temporary, whereas terms like 'shut down' or 'closed' or 'banned' would infer permanent. But this is China, and they have been very slow in allowing PlayStation games into their country (don't think there are any China PS3 games, actually).

True,since most of their trophysets are stacks of other games, but it would definitely suck for people wanting Chinese versions of Street Fighter V, CastleStorm, Hohokum, Krinkle Krusher, among others. Haven't had a chance to check my Chinese account, but I would hate if I can't access my download list after having just recently bought Mr. Pumpkin 2.
