PC gaming is HUGE in China
Source? From personal experience, mobile shovelware is HUGE in China. PC gaming not so much.
As far as I know, they play a lot of DOTA 2 (and I suppose every MOBA and MMO, Chinese gold farmers can't be just an urban legend ...?)
Video games weren't banned in China just most video game consoles.
That sounds more likely, given Japanese/Chinese relations.
